MPC Madness

Controllerism is fresh and all, but we most certainly were not the first folks to bang out samples using buttons or pads. There are legions of hip-hop producers who spend hours perfecting multi-finger drumming techniques on their MPCs.  To put it simply, these guys rock rubber buttons. You will find a few of my favorite MPC video clips after the break that might inspire a DJ routine or two. Add your favorites in the comments, and we will compile all the videos into a mega-MPC banger archive.

OK: up to this point I am thinking the MPC has some really nice input quantize function, but then this guy busts out the crazy tempo changes.
