    Old sampler families

    Do not ask. Yet there is a possibility to install a Compact Flash drive using internal SCSI port (about € 350 I think and some electronics concept to perform the operation).

    For sound, this is a sampler, an empty box as a blank page. A sampler 16 bit / 44 kHz and a sequencer that the heyday of the MPC. Like her sisters, the real highlight of this particular model is not very advanced in its editing options, it is this particular groove and simplicity of use. And there is little connect the MPC 2000 as a simple controller / MIDI sequencer controls the tracks instruments of any DAW. Overcoming in this way the technological deficits.

    UTILIZATION

    "The general configuration is it simple?
    The usual functions are they easily accessible?
    The manual is clear and sufficient? ... "


    The use of MPC in general is childish. Ors put data storage which was very tedious at the time, make a beat with this machine and very easy and fast.

    Everything is at your fingertips and available now, when we know these machines are well taf speed of the idea (or almost).

    SOUNDS

    "The effects are they effective and responsive?
    The expression is good? (Reaction velocity, aftertouch)?
    What are the sounds you prefer, you hate? ... "

    The effects available as an option are not of great quality.

    The pads are very nice to use. To enter drums is ideal to play a mozart it may be tense.

    I think the sound is rather neutral unlike the legend. In contrast, the dynamics are excellent, filters give some grain and a beat made on MPC recognizes quite easily.

    OVERALL OPINION

    "How long have you use it?
    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    How would you rate the quality / price?
    With experience, you do again this choice? ... "

    It is a machine that I sold for a XL which offers more possibilities. Since I had the 500, 2500, 5000 and recently the Renaissance.

    Storage possibilities of the time require a lot of discipline not to lose hope for his frequent samples and other prod well underway.

    If ... we have to be why not keep it. This is an obsolete model today but still interesting for its groove and workflow of an MPC most recent default.

    A superb machine, but also very rustic ;)

    - Midi In / Out, Audio out stereo headphone jack, unless you add the optional extension card (8 out)

    - No effects but optional, reverb and delay I think.

    - No integrated (sampler) sounds, you must either add your sounds by the mean of the disk drive
    'm a SCSI, ZIP or CD-R, the zip drive to save your project, not possible to burn CD-R, it just makes office reader bank.

    - The sequencer is very good with a swing mode that gives your fishing mix,
    the sequencer BAR is very simple with no frills.

    UTILIZATION

    well it is very ergonomic (feeling).

    - The manual is pretty well translated and simple, because the machine is too.

    - The functions are also accessible by buttons leads immediately
    mode concerned.

    SOUNDS

    - The sound very good and should only do your sampling
    if you do not put enough level in your source it will not be good, for example, also straighten your samples before sampling. Slightly méttalique
    but it is minimal, also a level of output that's overkill AKAI.

    - The pads are very sensitive unless your MPC 20 years without changing this one.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - I used two years while I had two.

    - The very simple but also very basic feature, good for music
    based sample as Hip Hop :)

    - Today is a machine for fans, it must have been used to
    appreciate, as many will find it very limited, with PC as Ableton or even some machine that looks like the kind of tools. Also if you want to get yourself one of these machines, think or do if a revision because it is very old.

The only complaint I can do is a rponse the VLOC not terrible (in pads). The map is avoid EB16, sounds really bad for the price.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this machine since its release, I had bought IMMEDIATE!
    This is the concept while one that attracts me the most was the era that machine had no equivalent, the MPC 60 as too limited in memory and much more ch 3000 re. The report quality price of this machine is now excellent, if a c'tait again, I Do not hesitate one second.

    Superb sequencer (the best for hip hop beats), super sampler, no effect on the 2000 I, the effects are added with a card but the interest is not.

    Are several functions with the pads that are excellent (decay, note var, attack, filter, tuning) in no time stretching against o (
    The original manual is clear if we make the prod. long time and it is bilingual.
    Apparently there is a manual in French. Pdf for the MPC 2000 but I have never found a ducoup I rcupr Manual MPC 2000 XL Franais (the same detail three things prs)

    SOUNDS

    The sound is warm (it will say more oldskool analog sound)
    An example you put the same sounds in Fruityloops style sequencer and the same sounds in the MPC = MPC In adfonce, Pete, grain is superb.
    The sound is clear and powerful raliste.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it recently, but no doubt it is used by the largest producer of rap Annes 90/2000 (Premier, Pete Rock, etc ...) is the sound I'm looking for!
    This machine is convenient and inexpensive opportunity to (personal I pay 400 euro)
    What I like most is the quality and power of sound, sequencer, and the incremented pads.
    What I like least is the floppy drive (long live the zip)
    At this price I will make the same choice without asking any questions!

    Absolutely, the mpc2000 is the brain of my entire hardware based studio. It has generally been problem free besides the bad lcd screens that akai had built the initial models with that they replaced free of charge. I'm kinda pissed that akai will intentionally hold features and build an entirely new machine (mpc200xl) with those features. But my beef is with akai the company and not the mpc2000, that's my baby.

    The mpc2000 is a breeze to learn, the manual is good but just using the machine is the best tutorial. If you make a mistake you can always use the undo button which has multiple levels of undo.

    Absolutely, the mpc2000 is like an old steam engine, as long as you give it it's power source it will operate for you just as well as last time you turned it on.

    SOUNDS

    I think the sound's okay, i've always had issues with the way certain sounds come out at low volumes, certain ambient sounds I have tend to sound hollow. Basically you have to be mindfull of your sound sources cuz the mpc2000 will definitely not color the sound favorably if the sound was iffy to start with. I would like it if the mpc series would have a compression feature that would give extra punch to its drum sounds.....god! would I love that!

    OVERALL OPINION

    *Sigh*, my mpc has been with me through 4-5 different girlfriends and the mpc is still with me. I've had rough times and then sat down in front of her and made music that really recharged me just listening to it and knowing that I made that on my mpc, just me and her. She's a good machine to have,...definitely

    Akai mpc2000xl full of features. It's a midi monster and can control several pieces of gear. The sampler is sketchy. I would refer to it more as a drum sampler more than a fully functional sampler; which it isn't. Use to sequence everything else you have. It can handle it. It's really missing more filters. Timestretching could be better but I primarily use my unit as a drum machine and sequencer. I leave the sound manipulation to my other pieces of gear.

    I wouldn't suggest this as a first drum machine. If you lack some background knowledge on how to use a drum machine, it's gonna be a tough road for you for a few months. It has a steep learning curve at first. After a while it should come easy though. The manual pretty much sucks overall. Again it makes no sense unless you have atleast a little background knowledge, and even then it still sucks.

    I have had my MPC for almost 2 years. I have personally had very little problem with my unit. It has locked up on me before. Probably about 3 or 4 times since I've had it. If you view the unit as you would a computer and save as you go along, it should never pose a problem for you.

    Drums cut through your mix with clarity. It's well known and admitted that the MPC's create some of the best sounding drums in the industry. Only maybe an SP1200 would compete with it. MPC's are the industry standard

    OVERALL OPINION

    The only way I would trade this unit is if I get an MPC4000. I move forward. Never backwards, ya know?

    This is great for drums! It would be nice to get the FX board standard for the money spent.

    Price paid

    $1400

    UTILIZATION

    Right outta the box you can lay down drum tracks. Its got a lot of hidden features not covered in the manual- so it takes a while to master.

    Perfect for gigging. Adds live feel to a show.

    SOUNDS

    Excellent sound and sampling engine. Pro quality all the way.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a great machine for making beats. Get this and a synth or sampler and you're good to go!

    Very satisfied with the mpc2000. It's been very good to me.

    Price paid

    $1,300

    UTILIZATION

    The manual is like all manual, dry. Maybe it's me being to eager to read the manual, lol. This machine is a musical monster once you get the controls and features down. The sequencer is very to use and straight forward. Even upgrading the mpc2000 with new hardware addon was a breeze.

    I would trust it at a gig. I never had it quit or lock up and I like that. Very dependable. Oyeah, I forgot the LCD Display burn out on me once and I replaced it myself. Minor thing. Only had to call customer support once to order the new display for the mpc2000. I say it went smooth. The display came to $138 w…

    SOUNDS

    The sound quality is superb. I was able to create some sweet hiphop and house tracks.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Hell yeah, I love this machine. This machine will always be part of my studio. I learn a lot with this machine and if you are lucky to own any MPC model, than you are ahead. I spent a lot of money on gear that, dont measure to a mpc. Now I am a owner of the mpc4000. Thank God for technology.
