This is the best sequencer sampler. I've been using an SP1200 and just bought another 60. Combined with an ASR10 ive got the best tools....Roger Linn is the man! So am I!

I have never owned the mpc2000 but i have used the 60 with expanded software for a couple years, ive used the mpc2000 a little and think it is a very good machine as well. as far as which is better, i would have to say the 60 is by far better. #1 you can convert wav files if you have the new software in the 60. the machine is built better and it has a very distinct sound. if you would like the clean sounds of the 2000 your better off just using a software sampler or another sampler, even a cheap s2000 that you can get for like 200$ and that has the same sampling engine as the mpc2000 but even better cause the mpc2000 is really just a percussion sampler...but the cool mpc60 sounds aren't as easy to get as the clean ones. so i wouldn't see a reason in owning another mpc other then the 60

I just gotta chime in here...the MPC60 IS IT!!!

if you load the right drum sounds and samples into this machine your a guarenteed something special...thats all there is to it....I started fuc*in w/ MPCs on the 60...bought a 2000XL to see what the hype was...did a couple of OK tracks compared to the SLAMMIN tracks I did on my 60 and sold the 2000XL...its not bad....just doesnt have that magic I guess you could say...doesnt have the swing/velocity going for it, and the Akai 2000 sample engine is muddy, youll have to go through some major compression to make the 2000XL sound nice....12bit vs. 16bit means nothing!!!! I cant stress this enough, I've owned a s3000xl, a 2000xl and the 60, the 60 chews up and spits out the other machines despite the difference in specs.....and some guy brought up the .wav thing, granted the 2000XL DOES HAVE A NICER INTERFACE, but its not worth the cut in quality...besides go to and download the wav. to snd. convertor and your problems are solved...

I use ProTools Digi001, a MPC60 3.10, and lots of records...peace out to the brown. Get a 60 while you can~~~~~~>

i like my pads on the left side. it's just better that way. not to mention roger linn is totally hecka genius dope. ya know? the sixty makes drums sound doper. the sequencer is pretty dope and of course, i like telling wack hip hop producers that i rock vintage electronic gear. i am an elitist. but above all, i am a musician (i play other instruments) and the 60 feels good to these nicotene caked and hashish soiled fingertips.

other things? ASQ 10 and a S950 = blam blam!? I don't know...please don't even think of buying a 4000.

I have tryed the 2000,3000,60,and the 60II.Get ready to laugh your heads off because the 60II feels better than the others I just mentioned!!Go ahead say I don't know what im talking about but I can hear the difference.The seq in the 60II has a distinctive feel.The 3000 actually feels tighter(I have a freind who owns both and he thinks the 3000 feels tighter also).I could say that I like the 2000, but it is not as sturdy and does not feel the same as the other two,but I can be just as creative with this.The 60II just captures my feel better than the other mpc's. I give this a 5 out of 5,Peace!
