Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? My 13 pound cat jumps all over it, nothing has broken. Going to get one of those pad upgrade kits, hear it's a major improvement on pad sensitivity. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The new model came out today, and I looked it over and decided that this one is better and more useful. This one has the old school analog look and feel and seems to have more easy access features that the new one is missing. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Easy to pick up and move around. Still feels like it's made well, but not so heavy as the 88 key. Value Was this item an overall good value? Kind of pricy, but compared to one $250 I'm happy to get this. I had a cheap one before and talk about problems.
A Heck Of An Upgrade! SUPERB

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The quality is excellent, a big upgrade from the oxygen. This is a real good studio quality controller. It has a real professional look and feel@ Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The mpd pads are wonderful I had an akai mpd 18 but needed a keyboard so I went for the mpk61 since it had the mpd pad already in them. It saved me space and now my bro has a mpd 18 as a gift from me. The arpeggiator is awesome, the knobs, sliders, and buttons have a sturdy and solid feel to them. There are countless things to go on about this controller. Its manificent Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? The mpk61 was pretty straight foward, but before hand I looked up reviews on youtube that explained everything. Everything is placed neatly and easy to access. I am definitely looking foward to producing with this in my artillary. Value Was this item an overall good value? This was a great value. Akai products are always a little more expensive but you definitely get what you pay for. the 3 Payment plan is superb. I really would recommend american musical to anyone who needed musical supplies.
