I was the envy of many since I got my mom one weeks before others could get their hands on it.I've seen people complain about the size of the pads but they're perfect to me.I wanted something standalone and was planning on buying something else until I seen that this was coming out.I've added so many sound collections and expansions.I'm making beats and learning daily.I highly recommend getting this box.you can pick. Between different legacy modes( sp1200 mpc 60 mpc 3000) so many sounds in this box to get you started banging out beats.editing using the touch screen is amazing.there's also great videos to learn on akai's site covering the features.it's a must have.
Musical Background:
Been making beats since before I had grey hairs.
Musical Style:
Boom bap 90's R&b with a taste of trap.
