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.

Did NI Bring You 40 Shebibs Very Own Instrument Expansion?

Native Instruments linked up with Noah James Shebib (bka 40 Drake's producer & engineer) with his "Very Own" Kontakt play series expansion. It works in all DAWs both Windows & MacOSX. So, I'll show you how to use these sounds on my AKAI MPC Live II & MPC software. Both expansions are on sale right now for $100 (for both btw). Hurry up and get it because that's not a bad deal. However, I want to know if you like the sounds he curated?

This MPC Expansion is Soulful AF! Neo Sunset Beat Making

I'm checking out AKAI's new MPC expansion called "Neo Sunset". Which fills the void of the late 90s hip hop/boombap sound (ex. J.Dilla's hip hop neo soul style). So, let's make a beat & explore some of the sounds! Let me know what you think?

Could "SmplTrek" be The Drum Sampler of the Future?

SmplTrek is a portable drum sampler from Sonicware that's pushing the envelope in features for only $300!!! That's right! This sampler could give companies like AKAI, Native Instruments, Novation, Roland, etc a "run for the money"! I'm reacting to their trailer video, talking about the specs, and comparing it to my huge collection of drum samplers. I want to hear from you guys in the comments. I bought mine!

Is the Mpk MiniPlay 3 Worth It?

A video review & comparison of the AKAI Mini Play MK3 vs the Mini. I'll show you how to use it, some key features, pros, & cons. At $150, it's one of the most affordable MIDI controllers with built-in sounds & speaker. Also, it can be used as a portable keyboard. However, the general MIDI sounds are a bit dated but you can modify them using the parameters. I'll give it an overall score of 80%. What do you think?
