In the picture left. Birgir uses the MPC 2500 as center of the Gus Gus liveacts. All tracks are played from the MPC, filtered over the Eurorack modular filterbank with mainly wasp filters and is mixed with a Mackie 1604. He uses Alesis Nanoverb, Boss RE-20 and Lexicon MX200 Effects.more
With JJ OS XL, it's killer!
At 3:00 of this video, DJ Thoomp talks about his equipment saying "[Akai](http://equipboard.com/items/akai-mpc60ii), Roger Linn, and those are the only MPCs that I really deal with. I got the 2500 over there, and that's cool, still getting used to it and it does a lot of things! y'know."more
Fakear : On jouait dans un groupe de ska-punk au lycée avec Gabriel, plus connu sous le nom de Superpoze. Et puis, il était un peu geek, il bossait déjà avec une MPC, très attiré par la technique. De mon côté, je bossais beaucoup avec mon clavier, je bidouillais des trucs avec mon synthé mais ça ne marchait pas. Je me suis donc tourné vers Gabriel qui m’a parlé de la MPC comme d’un truc pas cher, pratique, un objet que tu mets dans ton sac à dos et terminé. Aujourd’hui, j’ai toujours le même sac à dos et je le trimballe partout.more
"I used software when I first started, made a lot of awful music, then found myself in the MPC. If I open myself up and look past limitations, the world seems more overwhelming and my music suffers. Part of my creative process is making strict guidelines about what I can’t do, which helps me operate and find creativity through my limitations."more
Great machine. A ton of features, especially if you're upgrading from the XL. The build quality on this one is not so good in my opinion. Had to switch all the tact switches, the pads were totally fine though. Great MPC to get if you don't know what MPC to get.
Having an on board hard drive and built in effects makes this MPC my favorite. Using an MPC is one of the best and most fun ways of sequencing beats and songs. It is a great tool for any studio productions and creations, as well as an awesome tool for using live as well. I got into playing live drums and beats and using this as an instrument and live trigger was amazing, super smooth pads, excellent editing capabilities. This would be a great tool for someone to learn how to sequence beats and songs as well as an amazing piece of gear for seasoned producers as well.
