The new MPC2500 Music Production Center is the recognized industry standard, a 32�voice drum/phrase sampler with up to 128 MB of RAM and extensive editing control. Designed for professional music production environments and DJs and live club performers, the MPC2500 features a time�tested user interface, responsive velocity� and pressure�sensitive pads, twin onboard effects processors, four Q�Link controllers (two sliders/two knobs) for extensive real�time control, plus 10 outputs and a S/PDIF digital output.

The ultra-powerful MPC2500 sports a 100,000 note/64 track MIDI sequencer that can be assigned to four separate MIDI outputs for a total of 64 independently addressable MIDI channels. Internal sounds reside in flash memory and can easily be swapped for new sounds via compact flash cards, optional user installable hard drive, or the optional CD�ROM drive. A CF card with preloaded sounds is included to get you started.

Rock-solid sequencing and drum programming machine with 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive rubber pads.

The Akai MPC2500 Music Production Center combines a 64-track MIDI sequencer with a 32-voice, 16-bit stereo digital sampler in one extremely powerful desktop unit.

The Akai MPC2500 has 2 internal effects processors that can be used simultaneously. They include a wide range of effects algorithms, such as reverb, delay, bit grunger, chorus, phasers, flying pan, 4-band EQ, compressor, and a phase shifter.

Realtime control is provided by 2-note variation sliders and 2 Q-Link knobs that can be separately assigned to allow flexible, realtime performance control of a wide variety of selectable parameters. These parameters include level, pan, filter cut-off and resonance, and tuning. Each assignable Q-Link knob can generate MIDI data so that parameter information can be recorded and played back from within a sequence.

2 MIDI inputs and 4 MIDI outputs come standard on the Akai Music Production Center, enabling 64 external MIDI channel operation. In addition, the MPC2500 can individually control its onboard sampler with up to 64 parts, allowing users to assign a different program on each track.

A large LCD screen allows a clear view of sequence data. Continuous MIDI data can also be shown, as well as edited, graphically.

Comes with 16MB of onboard memory which can be expanded up to 128MB of RAM via the optional EXM128 memory card ( sold separately. Optional CD-M25 drive adds CD burning capability (sold separately) .
