  • Ableton Push 2

    Ableton Push 2 - "Great, almost perfect ergonomics"


    Couldn’t resist ! I discovered Push with this version 2, so there's no way for me to compare with version 1. The first thing that struck me was its weight – rather heavy for a controller. Seems sturdy. Regarding the lights now (USB-fed only, s…

  • Akai MPC Studio

    Akai MPC Studio - "Great, but no interface"


    The Akai Professional MPC Studio is the newest line of MPC from Akai and it came out this year. I had the pleasure of working with it twice. It comes stocked with over 6GB of sounds and it supports VST plug ins. You can use the Akai Professional on …
