AKAI MPC 2000 XL IN NEAR MINT CONDITIONS EXPANDED 750 INTERNAL ZIP DRIVE + EXTRAS Unique chance to purchase a clean or near mint AKAI MPC 2000 XL in perfect working conditions. Upgraded to 32 MB sample ram, integrated 750 internal zip drive, this zip drive can also read and write 250 and 100 zip disks, this is the best ZIP kit you can get. I have found out that if you program your beats smoothly there’s no need for the 8 OUT optional card or the effects board. Everything in this Akai MPC is working flawless, no blemishes,no even dents, as you can see in this video I’m adding one collection of self-sampled heavy drums that I’ll be promoting in my others auctions, plus a couple of blank 250 zip disks to get you started. Feel free to ask anything. No international shipping, the unit is 110 volt, if any international bidders are willing to buy it. Send me an email.

The MPC2000XL can do both. With linear sequencing, the whole song is one long sequence which can be recorded continuously in real-time, much like an audio recorder, or edited by copying/pasting bars (such as verse, chorus, etc). This is good when recording tracks while playing live over the whole song. With pattern-based sequencing, a song is made of multiple short sequences (patterns) that can be re-arranged very quickly in Song mode or even in real-time using the Next Sequence feature. However, unlike limited ‘groove-boxes’ where patterns are only one or two bars, on the MPC2000XL, pattern/sequences can be of any length. With the MPC2000XL, you can work on each pattern in a loop, switch patterns, and in Song mode, simply specify the order the pattern playback and number of repeats to create an arrangement. At any time, you can change the arrangement without tedious copying/pasting. In addition, if you decide to modify a pattern (say, the chorus sequence) after having created the song arrangement, it will automatically be modified in all the instances of the same pattern (i.e. all the choruses in this example). With linear sequencing, you would have to copy/paste the edited bars again, as many times are there are instances. Of course, with the MPC2000XL, you can also create of a copy a pattern if you want to modify only one instance.Can I edit the sounds of my MPC2000XL on a computer? Yes. Samples are saved as standard WAV files and can be edited and processed in any sample editing software. Programs can also be edited offline on a computer using 3rd party Program editor software such as “MPC Editor” for Windows 95/98/NT/XP. Sounds (programs/samples) and sequences can be transferred between the MPC2000XL and the computer either via Floppy disk, SCSI ZIP drive or via a Flash card (MCD model).I have a sample of a bass sound assigned to one pad. How can I play it on all the pads at different pitch? Easy. Simply press the “16 LEVELS” button, hit the pad that contains the bass sample and enable the 16-TUNING mode. Now, the bass sample can be played across all the pads with 16 chromatic tunings.What is the benefit of having two sets of MIDI In / Out? The two MIDI Inputs allow connecting a MIDI controller (keyboard, drum pads) to one input while the other input is used to receive MIDI Sync from another unit such as a digital recorder. Otherwise, you would need an outboard MIDI Merger. The two Midi Outputs allow the MPC2000XL to control 32 external MIDI Channels (16×2), in addition to the 24 internal Programs. This is very useful if you have more than one outboard multi-timbral sound generator (for instance, your keyboard and a sound module).What type of memory will work in my MPC2000XL? You should use 72-pin Fast Page or EDO SIMMS with a speed rating of 70 ns (nanoseconds) or faster. They can be either parity or non-parity (if parity is present it will be ignored), and should have gold leads. The MPC2000XL supports 16 MB and 32 MB SIMMS. However we recommend using 2 x 16 MB SIMMS because the manufacturing specifications of 32 MB SIMMS have changed slightly since the introduction of the MPC2000XL and we have discovered that not all 32 MB SIMMS will work.When I hook my MIDI keyboard to the MPC2000XL, why can’t I hear the keyboard sounds when I listen to my headphones on the MPC2000XL? MIDI connections do not transmit audio, so you won’t hear the keyboard sounds from the MPC2000XL’s headphone output. Only MIDI data (note on/off messages, etc.) are transmitted and recorded in the MPC. The audio from the keyboard will be output directly from the keyboard output. You will need a mixer to connect the outputs from the keyboard and MPC to, then you can listen to the headphone output on the mixer.What are the differences between MPC2000XL and MPC2000? Both have the same I/Os, use same Effects board, 8-out expander and the sample engine between them is essentially the same. Many improvements on the Sequencer section and a few added features in the sample editing area:XL sequencer memory increased from 100,000 events to 300,000XL has 4 buttons for pad/bank selection vs the former 1XL can access 4 drum programs simultaneously, essentially making it 4 part multitimbralNumber of samples stored doubled to 256 on the XLFolder support for storage on the XLXL dedicated Next Sequence button: can switch between sequences using the pads (just like the Track Mute function)XL has SUDDEN button added to immediately switch to next sequenceXL has 2nd sequence function allows you to associate another sequence to play simultaneously with current oneXL can solo from Track Mute screenXL can change sequences with program changesXL has Device naming for each midi channelXL has Midi monitor screenXL has improved multiple-track recording by specifying which tracks to record and channels for soft-thruXL can Resample a sound with a different bit depth or sampling rateXL has Slice function. When samples are zoned (up to 16 zones per sample), you can automatically slice the zones and create new program (with pad assignments and with extra specified samples at end of each sample because of the sample decay)XL has Timestretch function with adjustable presetsXL has automatic Chromatic assignment (16-Tuning mode). Essentially allows you to create a keygroup across the key/pads from one sampleXL has internal IDE port so you can replace the floppy with a Zip driveXL has a tilting screenXL can now switch from REC/OVERDUB to PLAY and vice versa without having to stop the sequencerWhat are the differences between MPC2000 and MPC3000?
