Almost there. Maschine watch out!
The Akai MPC ONE is a well built beat machine. If I had to rate it overall using digits, I would give it a 3.8. I will break it into good and bad. GOOD: 1. This AKAI MPC One feel pretty well made. For a small device, if feels beefy. Knobs and pads feel quality. 2. It doesn't have a battery, but port...

MPC Buyer's Guide: MPC Live II vs MPC One vs MPC X
Best Beginner Option: If you are just starting out and have a limited budget my pick would definitely be the MPC One. It’s great entry level MPC and perfect if you don’t really have any specific need for all the additional inputs and outputs found on the more expensive units. It’s small, takes up minimal desk space and can be carried around easily

Best standalone music making device on the market today
I think it has way exceeded my expectations. Very easy to use, learning is quick, lots of documentation and support available online, was producing music in no time. Remember to upgrade to the latest firmware, there's lots of extra goodies there.

Incredible value, vast capabilities, but Akai has no customer support
I'm not a "beat maker," but I did want some kind of song creation tool that didn't require me to use my computer and DAW. So, I've tried various options. The MPC One comes about as close as I can imagine for a complete song creation tool that is much more hands one than a computer and mouse. The tou...

Awesome Music Creation Device!! Looking for a review you can believe? This is it!
This thing is amazing! I would recommend this without any reservation. I own 3 other grooveboxes but the MPC One is so far above the abilities of those it really isn't fair to call it a groovebox or drum machine. This is a Music Computer that is completely standalone which I love because creating mu...
