MPC Samples The Raw 70s Kit MULTiFORMAT
The Raw 70s Kit is the second volume in our 'Drum Evolution' series, featuring a fully multisampled 70s Ludwig Classic drum kit, recorded with an array of vintage microphones straight to 2 inch analogue tape and mapped out perfectly into ready-to-play programs for all MPCs & Maschine.

Oozing with gritty character and tape saturated goodness, these are just about the filthiest, hard hitting multisampled drums we've ever had the pleasure of working with. This demo which was programmed entirely in an MPC:

In total there's 16 unique drum articulations covering all the essentials you’ll need to create incredibly realistic and versatile drum performances, all mapped out across the pads in a finger drumming friendly layout, perfect for programming or for playing live. Check out this demo from finger-drumming whizz Tim Kroker:

Each drum articulation is provided with 12-18 different takes recorded across the entire velocity range, allowing for a very realistic and natural recreation of the original kit, and ultimately giving you everything you need to create your own vintage-style drum performances packed with punch and that elusive retro vibe.

There are 259 drum samples in total, each provided in 24 bit WAV, 16 bit WAV and legacy MPC sound formats, along with ready-tweaked programs fully compatible with every single MPC model ever, all versions of JJOS, and Maschine 1.8/2.x. No other series of multisampled drum kits can boast this kind of specialist MPC support because no one knows MPCs like we do; 100% compatibility in all MPC models - guaranteed.

The included kits also feature the same layout that we used in the previous release of this series, ‘The 60s Funk Kit’, so if you own both you can easily experiment with different drum kits on the same sequences.

For more information about the instruments used in the kit and a breakdown of the ready-made kit layouts included, check out the detailed User Guide.

MPC Samples The Vintage 73 EP MULTiFORMAT MPC Samples The Vintage 73 EP MULTiFORMAT
The Vintage 73 EP from MPC-Samples and BBoyTech is our incredibly faithful multisampled reproduction of the iconic and much sought-after Fender Rhodes electric piano, optimized entirely for MPCs and Maschine!

Recorded using Corry’s own beautifully restored 1972 Fender Rhodes Mk1 (73 key suitcase model), we’ve perfectly captured the broad range of velocity-sensitive timbres and tones of this vintage classic by sampling 4 unique velocities for each and every note, providing an instrument recreation like you’ve never before experienced in an MPC. 

From the distinctively rich and soulful bell like tones heard when playing softly, all the way up to the more aggressive raw tones at higher velocities, this unique MPC instrument perfectly translates the true sound of a real Rhodes to your pads – check out the demos below, sequenced entirely in the MPC Software:

There’s 292 samples in total all in standard WAV format along with a number of different programs precisely tailored for various samplers and operating systems.

The full chromatic 4-zone velocity switching instrument was made specifically for the MPC Software (.xpm), Maschine (.msnd), MPC4000 (.akp) and MPC5000 (.50k), with 4 completely unique samples on each and every pad providing incredible realism and velocity sensitive tonal variation for each note that you play.

MPC Renaissance, MPC Studio, MPC Element & MPC Touch users also get the instrument in MPC Software Expansion Pack (XPN) format for installation directly into the MPC Software Expansion Browser.

And for times when you’d need a smaller memory footprint we’ve created a number of programs that utilise reduced keygroups and/or less velocity zones, which still retain a very realistic variation in timbre while keeping memory footprint to a minimum (program sizes range from 33MB – 68MB). Perfect for the MPC2500, MPC1000, MPC500 and all versions of JJOS, and also available for lower memory usage in the MPC5000 and MPC4000.

We’ve even created a single velocity layer version for the MPC2000/XL which is still chromatically sampled ensuring each of the 64 notes has it’s own unique timbre while keeping memory usage under 23MB.

Additionally as all samples are provided individually in standard WAV format, you can import the samples into all popular software samplers and DAWs along with the provided AKP files for automatic mapping across a keyboard or controller (where supported).

The Vintage 73 EP - without doubt the most authentic Fender Rhodes recreation ever made for the MPC. Available exclusively from

MPC-Samples Cut and Paste Mixology Inspired by DJ Shadow MULTiFORMAT MPC-Samples Cut and Paste Mixology Inspired by DJ Shadow MULTiFORMAT
In the latest release in the hugely popular ‘Inspired By’ series, MPC-Samples is proud to present our homage to one of the most influential producers of all time; the one and only DJ Shadow.

Inside you’ll find a heart felt collection of 499 drums and drum kits inspired by the sound of DJ Shadow’s classic works from the timeless classic ‘Entroducing’ right up to ‘The Less You Know, The Better’.

First up we have a drum library containing 196 layered kicks, snares, hats and percussion. You know what to expect – vinyl filth, warm vintage tones and drums heavily seeped in character all expertly layered to give the unique and fresh twist you now come to expect from’s signature drums.

In the next folder you’ll find a further 247 drum and percussion samples organised into 8 full ‘hybrid’ kits each containing a mix of multisampled vinyl drum hits and perfectly matched percussion and fx sounds, all laid out into ready-mixed finger drumming kits across your sixteen pads.

Each kit also includes a unique bass tone which can be used with the 16 level function on your MPC to create your own bass lines, plus also features a selection of fx and instrument hits (strings, piano, guitar etc) - a great starting point for building your own Shadow-esque beats.

Finally there’s a bonus folder containing a further eight vinyl break kits (made up of 72 kick, snare and hats) along with 27 additional instrument & fx sounds (99 bonus sounds in total).

‘Cut & Paste Mixology’ is compatible with all MPC models, with random layer playback included in many of the MPC Software and MPC5000 kits which will play back one of up to 4 different timbre variations of a particular drum instrument, giving your drums a superbly realistic and natural sound. As the MPC1000/2500/500 do not support random layer playback, we’ve utilised velocity layer switching instead in these models.

Maschine users can also take advantage of the included kits by directly importing them into Maschine 1.8 or Maschine 2.x – each imported kit will create a unique 16 pad Maschine group that exactly matches the kit layout of the MPC version.

‘Cut & Paste Mixology’ is an exclusive and is available to download instantly after purchase.

Ever wanted to create your own unique killer horn riff? Need a haunting trumpet line or a jazzy sax solo? Sick of using unrealistic synth emulations? Turn your MPC into a virtual brass section with MPC-Samples latest instrument multisample collection, ‘MPC Horns’!

Inside you’ll find 6 multisampled brass instrument programs recorded directly from actual acoustic brass instruments - Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Flugel Horn, Trumpet and two different Muted Trumpets.

Each instrument is fully multisampled across its effective acoustic range, with plenty of natural timbre changes from note to note to ensure your performances sound incredibly realistic.

The demo below is our arrangement of the old jazz standard, Big Mess, which uses all the brass sounds from the pack, both as solo instruments and as a complete horn section – everything is 100% sequenced in an MPC, there are no loops whatsoever. The piano and bass sounds are from MPC Keys and MPC Bass respectively.

MPC Horns is compatible with all MPCs – that means you’ll get full native keygroup programs for the MPC Software (XPM), MPC5000 (50k) and MPC4000 (AKP) and chromatic DRUM programs for all other MPCs (e.g. MPC1000/2500/500/2000/XL/3000/60).

Just load up the most appropriate program file for your MPC model and the instrument will map itself across your pads in correct note order – you can then create your own horn lines using your pads or via an attached MIDI keyboard.

MPC Software and MPC5000 programs also take advantage of the built in random layer playback features which mean all your programs sound even more realistic as each note is programmed to play back one of up to three different timbres each time it is struck!

MPC-Samples The 60s Funk Kit MULTiFORMAT MPC-Samples The 60s Funk Kit MULTiFORMAT
Voted as one of the "Best Drum Kits of 2013" by, 'The 60s Funk Kit' is a multisampled vintage drum kit recorded direct to analogue tape that perfectly captures the unique sound and vibe of the great funk records from the 60's and early 70's, laid out in ready-made drum kits for all MPC models, JJOS and Maschine!

Inspired by the kits used by legendary drummers such as Clyde Stubblefield, Jabo Starks and Zigaboo Modeliste and built around a 1960s Gretsch Round Badge kick drum and a Ludwig Black Beauty snare, it's packed with a traditional gritty tone full of the warmth and character you’d expect to hear from classic vintage drum recordings.

Check out the demo - all drums and percussion came from this kit and were entirely sequenced in an MPC1000 using the included MPC finger-drumming kits:

Every instrument in the kit has been recorded by drummer Richard Preston (Tombongo) using 12 unique takes from soft through to hard velocites, giving you a very realistic sounding kit that's perfect for creating your own unique drum performances in an MPC or Maschine. In total there are 192 unique drum and percussion samples covering 16 unique instrument articulations including kick, snare, rim shot, snare drag (a short snare roll), pandero snare (a snare and tambourine skin-to-skin), hi hat (including open and edge), ride (including bell), crash, hi and low toms, claps, tambourine and shaker. Check out the review from Saintjoe from Maschinepacks/

All samples are provided in three formats; 24 bit WAV, 16 bit WAV and legacy MPC SND format, and we’ve also included a number of ready-made MPC programs and Maschine groups, carefully tweaked and optimsed for all MPC models (including JJOS) and Maschine 1.8/2.x that load up intuitively laid out finger-drumming kits:

The Velocity Sensitive Kit - this is the main kit provided for all MPCs and Maschine, where each pad is set up using 'velocity switching', playing back a different velocity 'take' depending on the velocity you hit the pad with.
The Round Robin Kit – made specifically for the MPC Software and MPC5000, this kit uses the 'layer cycle' feature to take advantage of the four unique 'takes' per velocity we've provided for each instrument. Each time you hit a pad it will play back one of these four different instrument timbres, producing very natural sounding hi hat runs and snare rolls.
The JJOSXL ‘Full Monty’ – JJOSXL is the only MPC OS that allows you to combine velocity switching and round robins together on each individual pad, so this kit takes full advantage.
The Low Memory Kit – this kit is more basic and features just a single sample on each pad, giving a much smaller memory footprint, perfect for most legacy MPCs. This one has added velocity-sensitive timbre emulation (V>Att, V>Pitch etc).

Fully Compatible With All MPCs, all JJOS and Maschine

Simply transfer the sounds to your MPC or Maschine, load up a compatible kit program and instantly start recording your own drum performances into your sequencer. Download the detailed User Guide to find out more about how to use the kit in your own songs:

We've recorded this kit very traditionally to capture the natural sound of a 60s drum session, and as such all samples are presented completely raw with absolutely no added effects, no additional EQ and no dynamic processing. Simply great instruments recorded with quality vintage studio gear and laid down directly to 2 inch analogue tape for that unique warmth, tone and colour provided by tape saturation.

The 60s Funk Kit is the must-have drum kit for all MPC & Maschine heads looking to create realistic, vintage sounding drum performances - available exclusively from!
