The MPC2500 was the second MPC model release by Akai in 2005, after the MPC1000.
It offers a lot of features such as multiple analogue outs, digi in/out, multiple filter types, more memory, more hands on control, effects, dsp functions, connectivity and expandability.
The Akai MPC2500 Music Production Center brought the company's flagship product into the 21st Century by incorporating USB and CD/ROM capabilities into an already powerful machine. Packing a 16MB sampling memory expandable to 128MB and 16-bit 44.1kHz sampling rate, this midrange model combined a more attractive price tag with the production power that originally made the MPC a rap and hip-hop production favorite. Excellent option for an all-in-one beat center, with some limitation on effects busses.
Check the "Blazing Loop Team" albums to listen to the power of an MPC2500, those dudes both use almost the 2500!
