The MPC2000 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 MPC2000 include Next Sequence key, four 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 MPC2000 gives you and the MPC2000XL’s friendly and intuitive user interface simplifies the expression of your creativity.

The MPC200 compact and rugged build also means that is equally at home on stage as it is in the studio.
