I've just purchased my sampler, and then upgraded it to 32MB. Getting used to it was very simple and fast. I use it in conjuntion with My computer using Sound Forge, Cubase VST, and Cakewalk. The MPC2000 has made it possible for me to do all the sampling that i had stored in my mind, but never had a way of bringing it to life. I'm sure once i use it more the possibilities are endless. The machine is wonderful.......well back to work....

The second I laid my hands on the MPC 2000, I felt the damage that could be done by a dedicated MPC owner, someone who is going to work it day and night with no end. I didn't even know what the hell I was doing, but the user friendly sequencer and operating system made it possible for anyone to get on. The MPC has enormous powers, and that's coming form someone who uses Cakewalk Professional. So I think that it's worth saving money for, cause I am.

The beast is a winner. You take samples from most Akai machines and use wave files too. If you have a PC as well, there are enough programs available to convert MPC files to say S3000. It's simple to use and although the sampler is not as powerful as a dedicated box, I don't think it is meant to be. It's a sampling Drum amchine. The sequencer is powerful and when used in conjunction with Cubase (it reads and writes standard midi files thus making it compatible with just about everything) you can add finer touches to sequences and then use the MPC for it's ability to turn tracks on and off using the pads. Very nice. It's a bit like using an old Alesis MMT8 but then a thousand times better. I've heard people grumbling about the thing, I think they either don't understand the concept or have simply bought the wrong gadget for they needs. For my needs it's perfect. I make jungle, triphop, ambient, bummed out just smoked a big one type o music. Even people with potatoes for hands can use this machine.

I bought this unit for one simple reson...I needed a drummer. I have never been a fan of sequencing, but I'm always a big fan of fidelity. I buy CD ROMS and load them into my PC as WAV files...though can someone confirm that I can connect the MPC SCSI to my PC (assuming I have a sound card/SCSI)and use the sounds from there...so I dont have to load anything into the MPC? I have problems saving sequences/songs and I am frustrated by how quick you can fill up a floppy disk. The manual is fine in some parts...terrible in others. But I understand this machine is not just a drum machine...it's an institution. However, aside from any reservations, the MPC2000 is quite versatile and fidelity-rich. I learn every day of it's power and capabilties and will welcome any comments or information as us users learn too.
