Hi Guys
New to the forum but have been reading posts w/o being a member.
This probably comes up a lot. But I did a search prior to.

I was wondering if I could get some advice???

Is it worth getting the pad replacement to the next gen pads?
Like the thick pads?
Does the new OS or JJOS make the OEM pads more responsive?

I was also considering getting the larger screen and the JJOS
Is the JJOS compatible with the larger screen?
Is the screen worth getting?

Im in the processes of sticking in a harddrive. I found an old hitachi drive Im not using. Need to get the kit to install it

Very excited to get back into this stuff. Pulled my MPC outta storage and am getting back into it. For a long time my studio has been dismantled

Wondering which updates are worth it?

Basically should I get? :

- JJOS
- thicker more sensitive pads
- Larger Screen

Thanks ahead of time

JJOS hands down should be your first pick. it opens up the machine into a completely different beast. could honestly never even imagine working with the akai OS after being on JJ for a few years now
