I Feel Bad for Loving The AKAI MPC Key 61

This is my review of the AKAI MPC Key 61 and I feel bad for loving it. I already have the MPC ONE & MPC Live 2. So who asked for this. Well, the keyboard workstation market is flooded with great workstation (Triton, Motif, ASR 10, Fantom, etc.). However, they lack in 2 areas. Which are the sequencer and the sampler! Some how AKAI manage to take the balls to put this on the market. Now you can decide on what's more important. Wait, did I mention there's new plugins too? Oh yeah!!! They manage to revamp the OS too while hiding that detail.
