All in all I am very impressed, especially for the price Verified purchase: The thing that drove me crazy was this was not a plug and play instrument, I spend days programming and online or manual help was dismal, I got my best advice from online forums. Good used working condition. A full length, fully-weighted keyboard would be fantastic – and even for the serious hobbyist 49 keys may not be enough – but something tells us that Akai will address these issues in the future. Pros Genuine MPC pads.

Good used working condition.

Pros Genuine MPC pads. Show More Show Less. To the left-hand side, orange-illuminated pitchbend and assignable modulation wheels glow gently.
A song that used to take me like 5 hours to do my songs are very complex This keyboard cuts down time and enhances songs. I really like the functionality of all the faders and transport buttons.

Cons A larger version would be nice. There are cheaper options available. I could talk about this keyboard for days, but since i cant, just go to a music store and try it out Oh yeah, and the arpeggiator and latch are amazing.
It looks like with all the buttons it would be confusing, but trust me, its easy as pie. Image 2 of 2 The keyboard can be bus-powered over USB. Perhaps the standout features, however, arrive in the form of two ‘sequence generating’ modules.
