    I have a couple of videos using this setup. “Altruwest TV Episode 12: Takin em to Church on the MPC 2500 ” has the MPC 2500 connected to the computer using Reason as the primary sound source. “Altruwest TV Episode 6 pt 1: Beat Making Session- Aftermath style beat ” has me working on a track using the MPC 2000XL with Logic as my sound module.

    Do you have a vid of an actual composing process using this method? I think you mentioned it at the end of this video but never did it. Like basically you making a beat or something using the MPC and logic/PT/Ableton. Thanks for the vid

    Do you know that Christianity is correct? The world around us reveals that G-d DOES exist, and the historical evidence reveals that Jesus Christ really did come to this earth and there is overwhelming evidence that Jesus Christ really did physically rise from the dead. Jesus is coming again and the signs of the end times that were foretold in the Bible are coming to pass.

    I peeped a few of your vids on Ableton…I can’t get a response to this question on annnnny forum, so…I need my APC20 to trigger my MPC2000XL. The technique described in the respective manuals aren’t helping. Scream back if possible. Peace

    FYI the usb Port on the MPC 2500 is for data transfer only, it does not send midi information. The MPC only sends midi via the MIDI ports.

    Sorry I havent used the M3 enough to help there.

    Ableton seems to have some sync/timing issues that can cause the music to drift out of sync. Make sure that you when you track out beats, provide yourself with a 2 bar empty sequence before the actual beat. This gives your DAW and the MPC proper time to sync up and lock.

    thanks for the video man ! I was thinking of getting the mpc 2000 on ebay for a really affordable price but I saw that it doesn’t have usb port. So all you have to get is that usb port box you have and it will do the same job as the 2500 mpc with out the cd drive? Thanks for your time..

    whats the price for the xl2000?

    Thats exactly how my setup is configured. My Keyboard not only controls the MPC, but it also can be switched to control the computer/software synths.
