Latest Akai MPC
« on: January 06, 2012, 07:01:51 AM »
I know I don't really need one of these... but for some reason I want it! Remember back in the 90s when every cool electronica artist used some version of Akai MPC or other?

That video didn't sell me on this oddly grey machine.

I'm not really sold, in the sense of actually being willing to buy one. But I just want one, because it would sort of make me a little bit like Orbital and Autechre.

I liked it, until I watched the video, that video is pretty lame.  ;D  Not my cup of tea, but some folks like it. I know Steve still uses his MPC60 that he's had for years.
Take care.
