Samples From Mars MPC60 From Mars

The Fattest & Warmest 12bit Drum Sampler

Designed by Roger Linn in 1988, the MPC60 is one of the best sounding samplers of all time and, (along with the SP1200), has shaped the sound of classic 90s hip hop, R&B and house music with its unmistakeable grit, warmth and punch. And despite looking like a cash register and having a resolution of only 12bits, this sampler still sounds better than any modern equivalent boasting higher specs. Quite simply, what you put into it comes out sounding better.

Usually when you sample something (an analog drum machine, for instance) the samples are less desirable than the drum machine itself. But with the 60, you can actually make an 808 or 909 sound better (well, different) - hardening it, fattening the low end, crunching up the midrange and creating a hard hitting sequence with an amazing shuffle. And while the debate over the best MPC continues, the 60 is undoubtedly the best sounding, with its instantly recognizable and classic color it imparts on everything that passes through it.

What we Sampled

Naturally, drum machines were the first things to get sampled into this thing - and we gravitated towards classic and oddball sounds. A lot of MPC60 libraries run pre-made samples into the 60 - but there is something really special about going *directly out* of an 808, 909, CR78, 606 and 707, straight into it. We also hooked up the SH101, Arp2600, and even SP-1200 for some hot sampler on sampler action.

To get a dustier vibe, we went record digging, grabbing everything from old school funk breaks, bonus beats and boogie 12"s to (pre-software) early 2000s minimal techno records. Our intention was to create our own drum machine samples by hardening them through the 60. Recording directly from a super clean phono stage (Ortofon 2M Red into a Musical Surroundings Phonomena) worked perfectly with the 60's gritty converters and we ended up with a collection of spicy and complex drum samples.

Finally, since the groove of the MPC is just as unbeatable as the sound, we captured every quantization setting from 50% - 75% as midi grooves for you to use in your own productions. The following is composed entirely from the Ableton drum rack with no additional processing, set to that unbeatable 60% shuffle:
