The powerful space saver


from Florida

Comments about Akai Professional MPC1000 Music Production Center:

This unit is absolutely the best unit yet that I have performed with. I use it in live settings and I am also planning to take it into the studio soon. I am able to have access to almost all of the functions as a play in real time. Whether it is the mixer or the or the recording options which allows me to program new spur of the moment ideas on stage. This unit is so small I don't have to worry anymore about a separate stand I just place on top of my keyboard and it is right there easily accessible. Plus the same number of pads and all of the functionality of all of the other units before. I'm hooked
