New Akai MPC2500SE Coming Early 2010

December 1, 2009

akai-mpc2500se

Here’s a thought for anyone considering the purchase an Akai MPC2500.  Akai plans to release a Special Edition MPC2500SE sampler/sequencer that will be available in white with carbon paneling and come equipped with 128MB RAM and a CD-R drive pre-installed.

The Akai MPC2500SE is slated for early 2010 availability.

More pics after the break!

CD, or DVD drive?
Either way, it looks cool!

Might be wrong Semantik, but I’m pretty sure this particular model has already been out as a “limited edition” type of thing. I saw it at GC maybe a year ago. I wanted it bad then, but the tag was too high. This has got to be the illest MPC.
All the simplicity of the 2000xl, with the burner and usb too. If only the pads had the old school feel….

that looks like a custom mod, and i think benjamino probably saw something similar as well. what this story describes is an official production version of the mpc 2500, not a one-off custom modification from a 3rd party.

PEOPLE don’t get wrong.. There’s a Limited Edition very similiar but THIS ONE is the SPECIAL EDITION. You can see the difference on the lcd color… all the buttons are black and the proof that I’m right and the cratekings too it’s here:

I have this MPC…I own #413 or something of I think 500 made, it says right on the front (it’s at a friends house.) I got it at guitar center, it was made by Akai, and not a third party. Don’t know why they would release it again…

prolly because the MPC5000 dissapointed most

There were only 500 hundred of the limited edition released, this other one is a special edition, I am not sure how many of those were released.

here’s araab music getting down on one a while back – I think its great that akai is gonna go to production line with this – cause I always thought it was their best all around offer. Everyone likes the simplicity of the 2000xl, we just wanted the usb and easier data storage.

Boooooooooo! Been there, done that. Akai really needs to on something to compete with NI Maschine. I hate to say it, but it looks like they’re almost done.

BTW regular 2500s are less than $1000 at GC. I suggest you cop one, upgrade it with a hard drive and cd rom and still come out cheaper.

They better get in the software game soon. If there was an MPC plug in for Ableton. Yikes. It would be game over for some other companies.

it looks like the only difference between the special edition and the limited edition are the blue lcd screen

ableton does have an mpc plugin called drum rack its better than an mpc.i gave my 1k to a friend because my software is killin all the hardware i ever owned and its rite on my laptop. the usb drum pads is all i need from akai .sorry but its the truth the mpc is like an tr 606 @ this point they are classics but very much obsolete .

jroctrax: you make a good point. I’m a hardcore believer of hardware and the old school feel and shit but ive always been intrigued by software instruments but never got to it. i have a picture at my blogspot of all the shit that i have including the MPC 2500 limited edition #479 out of the 500 that were made. I posted a track a while back with a song so itd be sick if you tell me why you think that shit that you have in your laptop is better than the stuff i got cus its always been confusing to me but i feel i’m right.. holla!

Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one
and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses?
If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?

I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any
help is very much appreciated.
