interesting - neither of those links seem to go anywhere on the Sweetwater site, but I'm sure they did when you posted them... Wonder if they jumped the gun, going pre-NAMM perhaps?


Look, we should all know by now Pete doesn't get into that shiny G-Funk sound. If it doesn't sound like a discarded flip-flop hitting an old bin lid, recorded onto a dictaphone, then pressed to shellac and buried in a pile of gravel for thirty years, dug up and sampled on an S950 with a broken dial, he ain't fucking with it.

A premature NAMMulation methinks. Although these have been doing the rounds for a few months now as general speculation and leaked photos.

Akai have at least announced a big announcement at NAMM, so remember to prepare your surprised faces ;)

It seems they can't.

Does any company drop the ball as often as Akai has done in recent times??

Nukai you mean Pete! Just another InMusic blunder, Akai died years ago IMO. They're making sure that this solution will definitely cost more, be less flexible and sounds worse than my current (and probably future) laptop + Maschine setup.

They're saying £1500 and £700 respectively over here, which isn't quite as bad as I feared. Well, the £700 one if it's really all you need.

No news as yet in wether these new stand alone devices will allow you the same quick access to PornHub as computer based production.

Thats something you definitely dont get with the Sp 404 and a faulty Mini Disc recorder as your set up.. :|

I'll take the 404 and MD over Nukai any and every day of the week, gents. Which is a bit sad to say considering how right Akai got things with my once beloved 2000XL.

I assume you've found the 404's secret porn accessing sub-menu that Dan's laughably missed?

Of course (the fool!) it's all about the sub-sub-menus

Is this what happens when you press the 'knob bypass filter' switch thats underneath the base of the sampler ?

Prices are a bit high on these all things considered, Roland could release a sampler at a much lower price, Novation could Pro the circuit at a much lower price, these seem to be a big gamble for Akai, they existed on the whole BS of 'Tightness' and they are not going to have that with these designs, bit of luck we should get a flood of 1000s and 2000s on Ebay though hahaha

It's not what you press as much as it is how you press it, Dan :d

Flexi - that's what worries me. "I don't need an MPC" might need to be a mantra

I love my Mpc 1000. Even tho i had to change out the pads and all the tactile switches this little beast is awesome.


Akai really fell off tho . Alot of there new products are all flashy and colorful with bright lights and stuff

I dug the 1000 - especially with the JJ OS - but after being used to the 2000XL it seemed like the pads were tiny for my yeti hands: I kept pressing the F keys when I was pad drumming (which was kind of ill when it cycled through drum banks, but still not what I was wanting to do). I don't think I gave the 1000 a fair chance, to be honest. If I got another MPC it'd probably be a 1000... but I don't need one.
