i have to get my mp serviced yo. i just bought it. well it was used and had a small crack on the plastic piece of my mpc 2000 where it says akai professional as if someone dropped it, but i heard it was real easy to replace. I got it for $499 at the guitar center from my boy, it was suppose to be $799 but my boy dropped the price to $499. any way every thing works. even downloaded the v1.72 os online. the only problem is that the record button sticks, ( but it works) and everytime I load my wave files into it and even with the full velocity on, every time I hit the pad of the selected wave file 7 times,, on the 8 times it makes a louder obnoxious sound of the original file. looks like i got to get it serviced.
