    I have a MPC2000xl and have jus been layin my drums down with it and have been choppin' my samples on pro tools. I hate choppin' the samples in pro tools so i was wondering if anyone had a 2000xl and chopps there samples in it to get advice so i can invest in upgrading the memory

    you just load up the sample and decide how many pices you wanna make then just chop away by moving the start and end points of each piece. Its pretty easy once you learn it.

    While its not the most powerful sampler in the world, its quite capable and easy to use. You can chop like bhunt says or you can use zones and the mpc will chop it ito upto 16 pieces and creat its on program for the sample
    Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity... MLK

    You will need to get two 16mb chips which can be found for da low on www.ebay.com I remember when i got both of my chips for my mpc2000 for 5 bucks shipped. So look around on there or someone around here may have some extra SIMMS laying around.


    p.s. They are easy to install also. If you can install computer memory you can install the mpc's memory.
