"Akai MPC X is back on top as the best sampler workstation"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Finally, Akai has come to their senses to make a standalone/hybrid Mpc. I have owne the mpc 2500 limited edition the renaissance, and still own the touch, and this unit by far is the best of the best. It has a very fast learning curve, the pads feel great and nice response. I have only had it a few days but I have not had any issues. Back lit labels make it east]y to get around fast, just buy it you won’t regret it.

"Why are you looking at reviews? Its a new MPC!! Just get it already!"

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
If you are on here wondering if you should get this, you are probably doubting your ability to learn a new tool. If you have any level of experience and historical prospective of making music, you should be ashamed of yourself for questioning if you should purchase this masterpiece. The same impact that the MPC had when first released, only to be bypassed by the creation of the 2000XL, In comes the MPC X. A brand new perspective to the field of laptop beat-making. Sure you can connect this to a laptop or computer to enhance certain features, but for my style of production, its only on certain beats, that I connect it so I can add a few effects. I would say that this is by far, the most complete unit on the market. This may be emulated or duplicated, but any added options that any other future unit may add will only make it unaffordable. Sure, you can add VST in standalone mode or increase the ram to run other plug-ins, but now you are adding hundreds, may thousands to the price. It feels great to not have to depend on anything but creativity to make a machine run. I'm in Love!!

"MPC X is the Cadillac of sampling/beat workstations"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have the pleasure of owning the MPC Live. It is a BEAST! My overall project results have gone up by 50% because of it's sequencing and crispness in sound. I just love it. The workflow is better. You can get ideas down in a flash. You can add an internal sata drive for more storage and navigation is a breeze. I'm going to get the big brother to my live next because I like they way the pads sit directly under the screen where I can peak up at the screen while tracking. It'll be around a long time. It is the new classic to it's already long line of products. Thanks AKAI for finally releasing these killer units. It was and is worth the wait.

"The Best MPC ever Made"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I remember buying the 2000xl many years ago and I bought MPC1000 to replace , but now this MPC X will be around for a while. It great as a software controller, but it really shine in standalone mode, once you had an hard drive you dont need to have your computer connected, making hip hop music the old fashion way, sampling from turntables chopping the samples using the keygroups and drums already loaded in the MPC X, I will always be on a MPC the MPC X is not made to be portable its made to be the center of your production studio.
