MPC 1000: Creating A Simple Drum Program

The MPC's interface can be a bit tricky until you get the hang of it. In this tutorial I show you how to create a simple drum program by demoing the following:

1. How to assign drum samples to pads.

2. Balancing the sample's volumes in relation to each other to create a rough mix.

3. Organizing the layout of the program's samples for ease of play.

4. Naming and saving your new program for later use.

Hopefully this tutorial is helpful. Keep jamming!
