Akai Professional MPC2000XL MIDI Production Center

   (1 review)

The MPC2000XL inherits many of the major features of the original MPC such as the legendary "feel" and "groove" so that you can be sure that your beats and sequences just swing. It also features the original MPC60's intuitive transport and locate controls, the unique NOTE REPEAT function, plus new additions such as four bank keys to effectively provide 64 pads, multi-program playback, multi-track recording, simultaneous playback of a second sequence, Next Sequence key, Track Mute key, TimeStretch, Slice Sound, Resampling, plus folder file management. Add to these an improved friendly and intuitive user interface thanks to the graphic LCD, two MIDI ins and 32 MIDI channels via the two MIDI outputs, and options for multiple audio outputs, multi-effects, SMPTE Time Code and even Flash Rom memory, and you have a dependable "switch on and work" solution to computer sequencer headaches.

The MPC2000XL comes with 2MB of onboard memory as standard that can be expanded up to 32MB of RAM using standard SIMMs. There are two options for onboard storage: a 3.5" Floppy drive (MPC2000XL) or a Multi-Card drive (MPC2000XL-MCD) that supports various types of removable flash memory, such as Compact Flash, Smart Media, Memory Stick, and Secure Digital. The MPC2000XL also includes a 50pin SCSI interface for connection to external SCSI drives such as CD-ROM drives, hard drives or ZIP drives.

A compact and rugged dedicated hardware sequencer/sampler that is equally at home on stage as it is in the studio. No computer needed! Whether you're producing drum 'n' bass, sequencing a rack-full of MIDI modules, performing live, programming intricate drum parts or triggering loops, you'll love the self-contained convenience and ease of use the MPC2000XL gives you and the MPC2000XL's friendly and intuitive user interface simplifies the expression of your creativity.

A real Mpc with all the old formula and more, you can have them for very decent price it sounds nice don't believe haters it's clear with still some grit when pushed the 2kXL is a workhorse hi powered outputs, the expander output is a must. The eb16 fx board is also very good with AKAI's fx family personnality I do prefer using fx of drum machines vs external gear. This machine is a great investement. I owned all the mpc and this one symbolize for me the concept the most. This is my Akai go to. The simplicity of it keeps you focus on producing something on it. This box has limitations but also tricks to keep it better than new models in term of quality/features.
