True to the roots of hip-hop, MPCsounds' new Vinyl Scratchez library turns the Akai MPC drum machine into a classic hip-hop turntable featuring up to 1,536 authentic vinyl kick and cymbal scratches performed by professional DJs. Available in all Akai MPC1000/2000/XL/2500/3000/LE/4000 formats, Vinyl Scratchez 1 comes as two separate MPC soundsets (Tha Kicks and Tha Cymbalz) or can be purchased together as one large collection.

All scratch samples are spliced and grouped side-by-side in pairs so matching forward-reverse scratches can be triggered easily, giving the MPC user unique control over creating thousands of new original scratch patterns. With all the sample grouping and program layout features included in the library, MPC users can now perform impressive, realistic scratch patterns never before conceived with an Akai MPC.

Vinyl Scratchez 1 is available on MPC floppy, MPC CD-ROM, MPC zip disk or as an MPC download. Prices start at $29.95. For more information and audio demos, visit
