Personally, my feelings have evolved on this issue. At this point, I imagine getting a new MPC Live, playing with it for 20 min., and then watching in horror as it freezes up or reboots itself.

My guess is they're not going to take any chances, and they're drilling the hell out of the units, to prevent any chance of this.

IDGAF if they stay mum on it. GET IT RIGHT. That's all that matters.

Until then, I'll use what I've got.

It's business. They're going to advertise a new flagship product.

Gotta admit, they're doing something right w/ this combination of videos and secrecy. The Live and X Seem to be top sellers on the pre-order scene. Anticipation is running red hot.

It really does put retailers in a hell of a position, though. I mean, they want to get those pre-orders, and they certainly don't want to be the last one on the block to have it on their site for pre-order, but Akai leaves them guessing...

Well, Akai opened a can of worms going software. They should of stood hardware during the release of the Ren and the software should have been an extension of the hardware, not the other way around. I guess they realized that later but now they created a monster and instead of being in a class all on its own, they have to compete with other DAW softwares like Ableton and Logic because its becoming demanding. If I was Akai, I say **** 2.0 and just release the MPCs and let it sample off the USB as well as sending\receiving MIDI data to record in 3rd party DAWs and thats it.

You all think it's a joke about sea piracy. That's how I once got a whole pallet of 2.5" Western Digital Scorpio hard drives years ago.
