A sweet deal on a sexy version of the platinum-standard sampler.

The Akai MPC2500LE Limited Edition is a small, special run of the legendary music production unit with flashy looks and full-strength upgrades to give it even more functionality right out of the box. Its style has been switched up with a white top and chassis surrounded by carbon-fiber pattern trim, all topped off with black pads and knobs. Inside Akai has tricked it out with maximum RAM (128MB) and an 80GB hard drive. Plus, the Akai-approved CD-ROM Drive (CD-M25) is included with installation instructions. Only 500 will be produced, and each will be specially marked and numbered.

The Akai MPC2500LE is designed for professional audio production, offers drum programming, sequencing, and sampling capabilities. Artists now have the luxury of producing music with a compact music composition center. The MPC2500LE has all the standard features of the regular production MPC2500. It is a 32—voice drum/phrase sampler with extensive editing control. Designed for professional music production environments and DJs and live club performers, the MPC2500LE 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 Akai MPC2500 LE 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, hard drive, or CD—ROM drive. A CF card with preloaded sounds is included to get you started.
