Posted on by

This is the operators manual for the Akai MPC 2000. If you bought a used MPC 2000 this is your chance to get a print version of the users manual for the Akai MPC 2000. This Owners manual is 170 pages. MPC1000 inherits all of the essential MPC features such as 32-voice stereo sampling, 64-track sequencing, and 16 velocity and pressure-sensitive MPC pads, fitting all the production capability into a compact, affordable package. The MPC2500 Music Production Center set the industry standard for beat production and includes a 32-voice drum/phrase sampler with up to 128 MB of RAM and extensive editing control.

  2. The Akai MPC2500 music production center combines a 64-track MIDI sequencer with a 32-voice, 16-bit stereo digital sampler in one extremely powerful desktop unit. The Akai MPC2500 has 2 internal effects processors that can be used simultaneously. They include a wide range of effects algorithms, such as reverb, delay, bit grunger, chorus.
