Sound Quality
expressiveness in a sampler is like asking how meaty tofu is. and yet, the mpc 2000 is so complex it truly excells as an expressive tool in both studio and live settings. even the midi is involved. you can create a loop and turn voices and midi tracks on and off (great for live jamming)- or you can sequence out an entire song and use it as some sort of freakish karaoke machine. with some time spent in understanding how and why it works the way it works the mpc2000 becomes more then a computer- it becomes a musical instrument- no less an instrument then a guitar or piano.
I'd gig with it- and it's never failed me.
General Comments
I LOVE this drum machine. I wish there was a little more live tweaking capability but there's many ways around this. the sequencer is amazing. the mpc2000 is expensive- remember that. there's other gear out there. that said- for *creating* expressive beats and compositions with feel and depth I haven't seen anything better out there.
