The MPC500 is the first truly portable all-in-one Music Production Center, affording artists the ability to sample and create music on-the-go.

Whether you travel around the globe for hit-making sessions or across town to link up for a casual beatmaking hang, the MPC500 is the ultimate answer to your mobile production needs.

Fully compatible with the legendary MPC line, you can work anywhere with the MPC500's battery-powered capability and drop them back into your MPC2500 when you get back to the studio.

16MB of on-board memory comes standard and can be expanded up to 128 MB of RAM.

When connected to a Mac or PC via its built-in USB port, you can simply drag & drop data between the computer and the MPC500's CF card.

Compatible with other MPC products, the MPC500 extends users' studios to fit in with their mobile lifestyles.
