    • hi BIb what MPC are you asking?
      i use to run a MPC60 MKII this was a amazing machine with amazing sound but i sell it finally cose i didnt put the mpc3000 chip and hard drive so was a normal mpc60 and for me wasnt usefull cose if i want have a good machine i had to spend lots of money and every time i had to load the sounds i had to wait alot, some times the DISKKETTES was broken,the scree was a little burned ...so finally i sold
      the MPC3000 is a monster cose have a superb sound
      the mpc2000 xl is a Standardon production
      the mpc4000 didnt know to much but people told me that is a mosnter aswell
      and i read about mpc5000 on future music and have lots of new featurings and a sinthetizer inside
      check the productions of ELEKTROAKUST and you will relise what you cand do with that maravillous machine!
      :)
    • I moved from the 2000xl fully ext to the 2500 fully ext coz of CF cards and USB mainly but it has a lot of new cool features as well.
      So good for sequencing, 4 midi out 2 in, i use it a lot for live gigs and i can say the 2000 was a tank compared to this but im still happy. I still use it a lot to sequence my tracks too, much better than staring at some colored patterns on DAWs :) but slower of course
      An mpc1000 can be a good start point imo, cheap and quite complete but the pads are a bit shitty...

      Yoo ciao amigo
      No I dont think theres so much difference, the 2500 can be expanded to 128mb and has an useful dvd-cd reader (audio writer) and a USB connection.
      The 80gb Internal Hardisk can be useful too.
      As i said the components were just a bit better on the 2000 (jogwheel,screen, knobs...) but i can easily live with that. Pads have the same good sensitivity anyway and i cant notice any relevant difference in audio outputs.
      Also since the 5K is out the 2500 is easier to find second hand and its much cheaper.

    • I use the MPK 49 with Cubase, Rebirth and an MS 2000, and i love the way it all works together.

      I had a hard time finding a good controller for a long time but the MPK is a beast...its also got a built in arpegiator and note repeat. The pads are pretty useful as well.

      I always thought i would go the MPC2000 route, but i never wound up doing it...just went for the computer rig instead.

      In the end its whatever gets you going, i think its been proven that its not what you use but how you use it.

      Use what I use... :) AKAI MPK 49 and Cubase and Reason .. no need for all those floppies .. its a matter of tast really though. Its good to have both software and hardware ..any good producer knows that. But if i had to go hardware only im with elktrokaust the 2000 still is the best to me.


      I like the new MPK series but i tried it and i can say the pads are not comparable to the MPCs, so it depends from your needs, its not just the same thing.

      I agree that is good to use both Computer and Outboard Gear. Not really about 'software'.
      MPCs have software as the MS2000 as well and so on and I cant see much difference between them and VSTi + controllers.

      Not sure i understood the reason why u would go for the 2000 instead of 2500 tho, just curious.
