All MPC 2500 Samples, Tutorials, Downloads & Reviews

Akai MPC 2500 ReviewThe MPC2500 is an MPC1000 ‘with knobs-on’ – MPC2500 samples and sounds work perfectly in all Numark Akai MPCs, and as the operating systems are virtually identical, while MPC2500 tutorials and MPC1000 tutorials are often interchangable. The MPC2500 is the true upgrade from the MPC2000XL in my opinion – from a build perspective, the two seem quite similar with their tilting screens, similar size, 8 outputs and sturdy builds. Internally, the MPC2500 is a completely different beast to the XL; the operating system is the ‘new breed’ OS from Akai and is basically the MPC1000 OS with a couple of additional features (e.g. Direct Recording).
