So I wanna start making beats and im tired of using computer programs, I wanna be working with real tools like the MPC 2000XL.

My question is, what else do I need to be serious about my producing? Like any must have tools, or luxury that would benefit me a lot?

It's not about the hardware/software, it's about the producer behind it. Use whatever you feel is the most comfortable for you.

i seriously feel like mpc's are more of a tool that was prominent/useful in the 80s & 90s. the technology you have nowadays is way more vast and limitless compared to an mpc.

i'd recommend you go buy some drum pads and controllers. korg, m-audion, roland, boss, yamaha, etc. all make some great stuff. combine the software and the hardware.

imo, mpc's are way overpriced and kinda becoming outdated nowadays.

get a maschine real talk. it helped me step it up so much its a great tool and ya i dont think any hardware in the world has as many amazing stock drums as maschine. like you literally dont need drum kits. compatible with all vsts and easy to set up with keyboards or whatever. also amazing for sampling like probably the best program out for sampling. also you can use it with its own software which is actually very good or as a plug in for say logic or reason or whatever. maschine is the way to go imo
