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.

Price paid



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


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