I bought the MPC2000XL-SE3 (The black and chrome one) About two months ago. Akai is indeed the master of putting what the customer wants into a machine, nothing more nothing less.

Rock solid timing, clear and artifact free sampling (not so on some other Yamaha machines) It it built like a tank, never freezes or hiccups, and is a massive machine for any type of beat driven music.

It doesnt have effects without the Xpansion, but who in the hell uses internal FX anyway? They just get in the way and make everything sound muddy. No internal sounds, so I dont have to wade through a hundred million cheezy 1998 techno wavesforms in order to use the machine.

No complaints at all.

J Grundles...I use it for Industrial and IDM so trance shouldnt be a stretch.

the mpc 2000xl is the easily the best drum sampler and midi sequencer. when having the sounds u like the best, your drum samples will be hott. i now know why it is considered an industry standard. i must say tho that other than drumming and sampling it sucks for bass lines and melodies. but it is the bottom line of your beat . the mpc 2000xl is a great buy!dont even waste time on the 3000

ive used logic audio for about 4 years. about 1 year ago i purchased and mpc2000 and have not looked back to logic's midi capabilities since. the midi in logic is just as good as the mpc, however i like using my ears instead of my eyes when writing music/tracks, and that is what the mpc is about. making tracks no time waisted on freakin windows and screens, just sound and ideas at your fingertips not a mouse and screensets. i still use logic for audio editing and recording as the power is enormous. its all about what makes you write your best tunes, so if you agree with what i feel your should check out an MPC.
