Technical questions for the MPC2000xl and the MPC2000

haha got it anyway, 3 pads in a mute group is still ok for me, found a way around this and i also have a s2800 i could sequence... and that one has mute groups :) had to get it, i love the quality of older gear and the LOOKS! got a good price on it too... i`ll get it tomorrow probably so i`m off to read the manual :D

Hope you got a good deal that it will help if lines show up in the display.
That's the real issue with the 2k/2kxl. :(

I still think you should give Note Off a try.

since the 2kxl has a polyphony of 32 samples playing simultaniously theoretically you could make a sequence that has 31 samples playing but have them set to 0 volume in the mixer section. Now when u play with the samples u want to use they should cut eachother off no matter in what order you play them since they use the last voice of the polyphony. If you have kick snare hihat main sample then in theory you would have 28 samples set to 0 volume and use the rest of the voices u have left for the samples ur using. I dont know if this method would work since it all depends on how the 2k works with cutting of samples when polyphony is used to the max.

In theory it sounds like you would be right. I don’t know anyone who’s ever taken the time to use 30 full sequence loops in zero volume just to try this. This wouldn’t make a group (it’s called “mute assign” in the manual there are NO groups) though, it would make the whole mpc a singular mute assign and you’d have no control over which samples to be muted, it would mute everything, that’s not what I’d want.

This is a good guesstimate you have going. Are gonna put this experiment to work or what? I wont.
