The features are superb. As this is my first sampler, I cant compare it, but nothing seems missing.

Price paid

£500, second hand

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use. Manual is less than perfect, but compliments other resources such as common sense and internet sites quite well.

It is very robust...very... Have not spoken to customer service yet, but from what I gather there is practically none anyway.

SOUNDS

Traditionally, I believe the 2000 series is a hiphop sampler. I imagine given its simplicity though, that it could be used in almost any other genre. The only problem I have encountered so far is the crashes (not as much as windows, but thats not necessarily good), and the loading times (I usually work off my pc).

OVERALL OPINION

This is a very good machine for any budding hiphop beatmaker. The above marks dont really do it justice.Try to get it second hand if you can, as theyre robust, and there will be little damage. As time passes, the mpc becomes more and more central to my beat-making setup. Great machine!
