Akai MPC-2000

The MPC2000XL MPC continues Akai Professional's tradition of providing rock solid sequencing and drum programming combined with powerful sampling facilities in one convenient and portable desktop unit.

New features on the MPC2000XL MCD include Next Sequence key, incredible multiple Memory Card storge, 4 bank keys to effectively provide 64 pads, Track Mute key, hinged LCD, multi-program playback, device naming, MIDI soft thru, multi-track recording, time stretch, resampling, simultaneous playback of a second sequence plus folder file management.

Best of all, though, is that this power works with you instead of against you -- if you've ever used a computer-based sequencer/sampler, you'll know exactly what we mean!

Whether you're producing drum 'n' bass, sequencing a rack-full of MIDI modules or performing live; whether you're programming intricate drum parts or triggering loops, you'll love the self-contained convenience and ease of use the MPC2000XL gives you and the MPC2000XL's friendly and intuitive user interface simplifies the expression of your creativity.

The MPC2000XL's compact and rugged build also means that is equally at home on stage as it is in the studio.

Sampler, drum machine and multi-track MIDI sequencer in one instrument

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
