MPC 2000XL by Akai


Akai MPC 2000XL


The MPC-2000XL adds several new features which include a Next Sequence key, four bank keys, Track Mute key, a hinged LCD, multi-program playback, device naming, MIDI soft thru, multi-track recording, time stretch, resampling (can down-convert samples to 22 kHz or 8-bit), simultaneous playback of a second sequence, and folder file management. The MPC-2000XL Studio Sampler version also adds an 8-out board and SMPTE board, and S/PDIF digital I/O built in. A standard MPC-2000XL can be upgraded to the Studio Sampler using the optional IB-M20T SMPTE board and Multi-8/DM Digital In/Out Board. There is also an MPC-2000XL Studio Plus model, which comes with all the expansion boards found in the Studio Sampler version as well as the EB16 SampleVerb Multi-Effects Processor Board option built-in. Each expansion board is about $250 ($350 for the SampleVerb board).

The MPC-2000 and MPC-2000XL can be upgraded to include up to 8 outputs, digital I/O, 4 multi-effects processors, expanded filters, 8MB Flash ROM board, SMPTE board, MPC Sound Library, and alternate internal disk storage mediums can be added. The MPC-2000 is a classic, and still perfect, entry level, studio quality sampler-sequencer that you can use to start making killer HipHop tracks just like the pros do! It has been used by Cirrus, Todd Terry, Underworld, Roni Size, A Guy Called Gerald, Freddy Fresh, Linkin Park, DJ Premier, Primo, Kanye West, DJ Shadow, Dr. Dre and Apollo 440.

The MPC2000XL is similar to the MPC2000 but with many newer features; including four independent pad-bank keys, number of samples stored doubled to 256 on the XL, altering sounds to a different bit depth or sampling rate could be accomplished by resampling, time stretch was added along with other features. In 2004 the 2000XL-MCD version was released, which features a CompactFlash card reader as standard in place of the floppy drive or Zip drives used in earlier models.[12] There were 4 limited edition 2000XL SE MPCs created between 2000 and 2003. There were two versions of the SE 1, one with an improved control surface, compatible with growing number of sound libraries and one with aesthetic changes. The Limited Edition SE 2 and SE 3 also had only aesthetic changes.[13]
