The MPC 2000 is a 16-bit, 44.1 kHz Mono/Stereo sampler introduced in 1997, then discontinued in 2000, replaced by the MPC 2000xl.
It's the first model without the Roger Linn collaboration.
The sampler was the best in its era and became an instant "must have", dued to its innovative possibilities about sampling, chopping
and sound editing. All in a compact, powerful and fully expandable unit that placed as the main brain in countless studios.
The MPC 2000 has been used by MF Doom, Dj Premier, Kanye West and many, many more
Both 2000/2000xl use same Effects board, 8-out expander and the sampler engine between them is essentially the same. The 2000XL had many
improvements on the Sequencer section and a few added features in the sample editing area.
Personally we love it, it needs a medium learning curve to master this machine, then it's usable in many ways to reach good results!
It's not for beginners, but if you want to start your MPC experience with a 2000XL, get ready to study hard on its manual!

But hey! Those sounds come from a real MPC 2000 from The MPC Box studio, so you can make yourself an idea of its sound!
