check it...I Have been a long time devoted customer for AKAI. To keep things short and sweet, so you people are informed i worked on 3 different MPC2500 and had to return them all because of glitches. Most people who do this and have clients know that you can't work on material and have your machine give you problems. It just seems unprofessional. After which, I gave the MPC 2500 another chance, took home the "Limited Edition" one and it was cranking them out, track after track. All of a sudden, two months into it...bam! glitches. the machine has been acting up...All i gotta say is save your stuff on a PC cause this machine is like a chick one minute she's cool the next minute you wanna through her out the window. Peace!

If you can't make a beat on the 2500 then there is something definitely wrong. It still feels like the older 2000/XL machines, but it has a more powerful processor. TimeStretching is now almost an instantaneous process, recordable track mutes, Card reader/Internal HD for super fast loading, USB connectivity for backing up your work, audio tracks for sampling live while the beat is playing (and it inserts the sample into the track for you), 128Mb ram, EQ and compression, Normalize, the list goes on. This is really a 2000XL on steroids. It does everything you need a drum machine to do. I wouldn't downgrade from this machine. There's just too much that a 3000/60 can't do to justify buying one, and there's so much other more powerful machines can do that I won't ever need. The 2500 is perfect.

I don't own a 2500 but I have owned MPC 2000 and Akai S6000. I really cannot understand why people buy this overpriced buggy thing. Already with S6000 you couldn't reliably transfer samples via USB using Aksys. From time to time you got a glitch on long samples, I have tried this on two machines. Akai didn't find it necessary to apply some data retransmission protocol. Now I read all this complaints. Why the hell you need this archaic machine? Buy a workstation with sequencer for the same money, or an MV8080, and you get good timing and just about 10 times more functionality. Is it only because you have to use these rubber pads (LOL!!!)? Or buy Reason and use a PC.

i'm very dissapointed. i've had a mpc 2000xl for 5yrs. never ran into all these problems i'm getting with the 2500. akai needs to fix the OS. i tried the JJ os free version and i was able to get around lots of the bugs i've encountered. i think all akai 2500 user should get together and start a class action suit. i know akai i aware of all the bugs in this unit, yet they are not doing nothing about it. why should we have to purchase a third party to fix their s... why don't they purchase the jj os and offer it free to the users of their products? maybe they are the ones behind the JJ os? making money on something that should be offered free.
