What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
everything is A+ as far as the hardware but software??? the sounds they give you I don't know what Akai was Thinking!! the worst sounding samples I have ever heard.that of a cheap casio.I would ad a real sax sound like that of the sax brothers samples.and better analog lead sounds like those of native instruments. or at least allow you to import these samples with the software they give you.
