xl has the auto zone chop and assign and i think time stretch that the 2000 does not have, could be wrong have only used my friends xl.
the 2000xl feels cheap to me , I choose the 2000 without a doubt. And I have heard both and I prefer the 2000 , although the differences are subtle.
My main beef is that shitty plastic jog wheel.
Personally i would choose the 2000 over the 2000xl. It sounds a bit better IMO. Don't know about the newer ones, sorry.
neither. 3000 or 60 is the only decision.
seriously, don't waste your time. Using these machines to make tracks nowa-days is backwards. You can mak emusic so much more fluidly and easily on a mac or pc. You will have FAR more creative options and you can buy a midi keyboard and pads if you need the hands on feel. That mpcs have some sort of sound quality edge over a computer is a total myth, aswell. two cents, sir.

Its freedom through limitation with the MPC. I use it for some stuff and get a certain sound. Other stuff I like to chop in protools.Anyone know where i can get a compact flash joint for my 2000xl?I dont want an external... so does it have to be IDE?
for real, i've been making music on a PC since i was 14. backwards for most of yall, i've just recently bought an MPC 60. i feel like with the computer, i can make whatever i want, VSTs, and all that, whatever. but the limitations of the MPC 60 is kind of nice, its limiting and in the end you take out the unncecessary stuff, wich in the end i have always thought was a great thing creatively. my advice would be, don't worry about it, you could always trade it out later on. i don't think there's a shortage of dudes selling their mpcs
i have used the 1000 for quite a while now with out it once ever crashing
yeah 2000 and 2000xl. same sound. people are TRIPPIN' when they try say there's a big difference.And I like the wheel on the 2000 better, it's got the outer ring and it feels sturdy when winding back and forth... the XL feels all wobbly...
There was some clip from a long time ago of Evil Dee saying "the mpc sounds mad corny." In my experience using a 2000 for about 10 years now, it does not sound mad corny. It sounds exactly like the sounds I put into it. It sounds mad corny when dudes crank up the resonator to 15 and everything rings. The lower bit earlier models provide some punch, but the 16 bit ones sound pretty true to the original sound (at least the 2000 does for me). The corny sound comes from people over using the filters and time stretch. If you leave things dry it should sound like what you recorded. The main advantage of using an mpc is the pads and the sequencer. If you can't figure out how to record into it and make it sound decent then you've probably got a wonky set up.
