Noon
separate outputs optional
Optional effects
the sequencer great groove

UTILIZATION

Quick easy to use is a pleasure to work on this machine, the sequencer a nice groove but I find it a bit limited
I never open the manual has

SOUNDS

The sound is neutral're really not much difference after sampler, no charm, absolutely nothing to do with the S950 or other ASR10.
Optional effects are pretty bad, if not worse!
a single filter and no more.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 5 years, which are good with this machine is how quickly a design a beat, perfect for beginners, adapt to hip-hop, it does not break your teeth like a machine of 80 years - 90 or a lot of parameters to manage, but be careful it's still a bit old anyway (unless you installed the flash card ect ...)
many well-known artist is still used (20syl for example) so it're not exceeded.
I find this machine shipped overnight for the time but when I see the price of one I would rather have an MPC1000 2000XL USB even without!
I lean more heavily on older machines such as grain typed of EMU SP1200 but for the MPC2000XL I would do the same choice again.
