I haven't owned or even tried an MPC, but I did have an MC-1 at one time.

It is very long, and it wouldn't fit in my rackcase at the time for easy transport.
It didn't have separate Bank Up and Bank Down buttons.....there is a Bank Up button and that must be pressed with the "0" button at the same time to Bank Down. 

Other than that I found it worked fine.  I sometimes had trouble pressing only one button at a time with my foot though.  lol

Like Kim said, the MC-1 is quite long but on the other hand all the buttons are next to each other.

   Does the MPC work seamlessly for the MP-1? If I'm not mistaken, wasn't that built for the Quad amp thing?

The MPC and MC-1 are essentially the same thing, just a different shape box. Any MIDI controller will work for program changes in the MP-1.

That was the MXC because it can do control changes.

     I picked up a MIDI BUDDY, so hopefully that does the trick! Sounds like Kim is the guy who's had success with that one. Again, thanks for all the help. It's saved me much time and frustration!
