i am doing some thing wrong?
is posible have a 10 tracks loaded on the 128mb¿?¿?
mpc expertes help needed!
MIDI MIDI & MIDI, at the end i dont use long samples anymore but one shot notes splitted on the keyboard, classic sampler style. All the drum is MIDI and basslines, basses, not complex pads and i remake all the vocals live by myself. Only way i found, also remember that many files can be used in mono, that saves some space.

Use what I use... AKAI MPK 49 and Cubase and Reason .. no need for all those floppies .. its a matter of tast really though. Its good to have both software and hardware ..any good producer knows that. But if i had to go hardware only im with elktrokaust the 2000 still is the best to me.
I like the new MPK series but i tried it and i can say the pads are not comparable to the MPCs, so it depends from your needs, its not just the same thing.
I agree that is good to use both Computer and Outboard Gear. Not really about 'software'.
MPCs have software as the MS2000 as well and so on and I cant see much difference between them and VSTi + controllers.
Not sure i understood the reason why u would go for the 2000 instead of 2500 tho, just curious.

I have the same problem like BIB
i have some money to spend on a MPC but as i only put my hands on 60 or 3000 i dont know what exactly buy! a 2000xl second hand or 2500 brand new!
there are so much diference with both machines? sound?
The Villain talk about that 2000 was a tank but still hapy with new 2500............................can tell me your opinions, please?thanx gab!
Yoo ciao amigo
No I dont think theres so much difference, the 2500 can be expanded to 128mb and has an useful dvd-cd reader (audio writer) and a USB connection.
The 80gb Internal Hardisk can be useful too.
As i said the components were just a bit better on the 2000 (jogwheel,screen, knobs...) but i can easily live with that. Pads have the same good sensitivity anyway and i cant notice any relevant difference in audio outputs.
Also since the 5K is out the 2500 is easier to find second hand and its much cheaper.
I moved from the 2000xl fully ext to the 2500 fully ext coz of CF cards and USB mainly but it has a lot of new cool features as well.
So good for sequencing, 4 midi out 2 in, i use it a lot for live gigs and i can say the 2000 was a tank compared to this but im still happy. I still use it a lot to sequence my tracks too, much better than staring at some colored patterns on DAWs but slower of course
An mpc1000 can be a good start point imo, cheap and quite complete but the pads are a bit shitty...
uhm some classics dnb tracks i still listen to but not very electrish:
Orbital - The Girl With The Sun In Her Head
Everything But The Girl-Before Today (pure class imo)
Underworld - Sappys Curry - Banstyle mix
contemporary i found him, ruff, dark and with the D flavour:
