It's everything you'd expect from an MPC and then some. New features include Next Sequence key, 4 bank keys, Track Mute key, hinged LCD,multi-program playback, device naming, MIDI soft thru, multi-track recording, time stretch, resampling, simultaneous playback of a second sequence, and folder file management.

Better yet all this power works with you, instead of against you. If you've ever tried to get a computer-based sequencer/sampler system to work the way they're advertised, you'll know exactly what we mean. Whether you're producing drum 'n' bass, sequencing a rack-full of MIDI modules or performing live, you'll love the all-in-one convenience and ease of use the MPC2000XL gives you.
