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.

Price paid

$1500

UTILIZATION

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
