Correct. Everything comes from the RAM. The MPC has 2 gig installed but you're effectively limited to about 500-600 meg.

I find this is quite a lot, even when using audio tracks. However, if you were only to use it as a kind of DAW (relying mostly on lengthy audio tracks) then you may run into problems. But if sampling/sequencing is your main focus, with audio tracks as kinda supplementary, then it works fine.

I'm yet to burn even a third of its memory on one of my completed tunes, but I rely a lot on fairly complex arrangements of samples.
