    Akai Max49 - "Expecting allot but flaws in design"

    07/09/19

    I so loved this keyboard, - Looks good - great quality feel keybed - good functions and controllers But unfortunately: - I had my second gig with it, now in open air and the touch faders began to jump around (and so did my settings/sound). I …

    Akai MPK61 - "Very good, but lacks features"

    06/18/19

    Pro - Very good keyboard, perfect action and real semi weighted - Solid built - Overall quality is top Con - No CC on the pads - No panic/all notes off button - No software editor - missing a 9th fader - Top screen should show more data …

    Akai MPC X - "A great device!"

    08/10/18

    Hi all, I see no review has been published for this product so far, so I’ll shoot first. As an introduction, I'll start by stating that I’ve owned almost each and every MPC model ever released, the good ones (60, 3000…) and the not-so-good ones…

  • Akai MPC Live

    Akai MPC Live - "A well-conceived, efficient and inspiring device"

    08/01/17

    I wish I could have given it 4.5 out of 5, but as you can’t give half-stars… I’ll go with 4, as it’s still perfectible! :-D After using it for a few days, I think I can deliver a review on this MPC Live and the said review is all the more positive…

  • Akai MPC3000 Limited Edition

    Akai MPC3000 Limited Edition - "All Hail Roger Linn! This & the 60 Are The Warmest MPCs!"

    09/28/16

    One of my favorite sampling drum machines! So warm and fat... makes my 808 basses huge! My go to machine for when I wanna make a 90's hip hop track... Actually, I do that a whole lot! I got a ton of samplers, and this may be in my top 3 along with th…

  • Akai S20

    Akai S20 - "Simple loop sampler"

    06/30/16

    Aimed at DJs and home studio hobbyists when it was issued, the S20 was never one of Akai's sampling flagships. But it's a humble and efficient performer that still sounds great, and is one of the easiest and therefore most immediate and satisfying sa…

  • Akai Tom Cat

    Akai Tom Cat - "Flawlessly built ! A very nice analog sound." has images

    06/30/16

    1- I use this drum machine in the studio only, for Electro, Trance, J.M.Jarre-style (oxygène...), etc, etc. 2-The finish is incredible, but after all this is AKAI PRO! Creating a sequence is very easy if you read the manual from start to finish. T…

  • Akai Advance 49

    Akai Advance 49 - "A great MIDI keyboard - a not-so-great software"

    12/20/15

    After a whole weekend spent getting used to this Advance 49 keyboard, my first conclusions: an excellent keyboard, very pleasant to be played, with great egonomics. On the other hand, the VIP software that comes with it is what I'd technically call "…

    Akai MPC5000 - "all round equipment " has images

    02/21/15

    Bought this unit after a testdrive for weeks. It may have the name and purpose as a drum machine / sampler but it is much much more. This unit replaces my apple when i'm on the road. It will be my recorder, sequencer,sampler and editor. At home…
