    Custom Akai MPC 2000XL with Black ABS Bezel & Wood Wrist Rest, SD or CF Card Reader
    Black Vinyl Wrap, 32MB RAM, 8 Output / Digital I/O Board, MPC Stuff v.2 LCD Screen

    We’ve sold over 75 custom Akai MPC 2000XL to date, we get texts and emails from our customers regularly, telling us how happy they are with the build quality and function. ONLY ONE customer (from the LA area) has returned a custom MPC since 2009; in that case, the customer thought this was a new model from Akai because of the sleek design. His payment was promptly returned, as soon as we received and inspected the unit. Over 80 hours of hand fabricated care are put into each unit, they are fabricated per individual order, due to customer requests.

    We purchase used MPC units and refurbish them better than new (as a few customers have commented) using a process we’ve been perfecting since 2009. The build quality is the best in the industry, hands down! Place your pre-order for this custom Akai 2000XL drum machine by Big Noise MPC. Again these units are Built-Per-Order, please send us a message if you would like to customize your pre-order. These units have become a collectors item. Due to order volumes, custom builds are currently delivered within 45 to 75 business days.

    Place your pre-order for this Custom MPC-2000XL unit by Big Noise MPC. This unit is upgraded with the card reader we have in stock at the time. Hot swap SD Card Reader or CF Card Reader are the current options. The MPC is upgraded with 32MB of internal memory and Akai IB-M208P 8 output / digital I/O board. Both playback, record and 8 out audio path caps upgraded to Elna Silmic II electrolytic audiophile caps. The unit is wrapped in a durable black vinyl skin. The custom MPC bezel is hand fabricated from black colored ABS 1/4″ sheet and wood wrist-rest with aluminum trim. This is a robust mechanical design made to last the lifetime of the MPC.

    The unit is upgraded with the MPC Stuff v.2 blue LCD Screen, Pad Sensors (only if original sensors are replaced), black Fat Pads and LCD Window. The unit is upgraded with extra large grey rubber feet, custom black buttons, knobs and slider. The jog / data wheel is upgraded with a solid billet aluminum wheel by Carlo Bronson. These units are also equipped with a proprietary damping system under the pad actuators to reduce physical vibration and enhance tactile performance. The AC input; primary, secondary and DC output have been upgraded with Ferrite Clamp RF noise filters. The unit comes with a SD and/or CF card and complete Big Noise MPC Drum Sample Library including 7 Mute Group Program for sample playback.

    The modular concept was designed in 2019. We can add custom embellishments to the panels. Custom MPC 2000XL bezel kits are now available for pre-order on the Big Noise MPC website. Bezel kits come in a wide variety of materials such as Phenolic (a canvas / linen compost), plastic, wood and metal. Customers can mix and match materials. The MPC 2000XL is a classic workstation, perfect for entry level and professional music production. A studio quality sampler / sequencer you can use to make amazing tracks just like the pros! It has been used by Cirrus, Todd Terry, Drugs Beats, Roni Size, Black Milk, Freddy Fresh, Linkin Park, DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Kanye West, Kev Brown, Dr. Dre, Apollo 440 and Noiseman.
