Akai MPC2000XL user reviews
- Yo for really technical characteristics, both refer to the site www.akaipro.com
I'd just found on the MPC in Jack 2 audio inputs that allow sampling 6.35, and 2
6.35 jack outputs and also 2 MIDI In and 2 midi out. This is the minimum connection need
Boss, Akai offers a menu of 16 separate audio outputs and a card effect, but only
optional ... When we see that we only had a floppy drive as a storage medium, at a price

MPC offers a very simple work plan, all functions are listed on the keypad
Digital, simply select them. What I personally find cool is that the MPC does not
fuss when it comes to rework or load a sound during playback. Small clarification: the book Akai MPC

Cubase) but otherwise nothing very complicated
- In terms of sound, nothing to say since the purpose of a sampler is to have its own bank of sounds ..!
You still have to say that Aker provided a CD with samples, many of course, but where is the interest
because the MPC does not have CD: AKAI THANKS!
Personally it took me some time to find the right way to get the desired quality in
sampling was still a 16 bit sample, and the option to optimize the quality is rather a good point.

disadvantages of some configurations more or less expensive.
