Dissapointed
DK0000001, 05.06.2020
I was watching this product for over half a year before i had the 1300€ surplus to buy it.

I wanted to use this device for live performances.
To my surprise it was not at all what was advertised, and i am still waiting for the arranger mode (probably coming somwhere late 2020).

For 6 months i was trying not to leave a review because i felt so dissapointed and cheated, that i knew it would be bad. But the worst thing was, Thomann put the Akai Force for 21% off (280€ less than i paid), only 2 weeks after i bought the device. I was furious! I could have bought a turntable for that money, or a zoom recorder.

So now i have a reminder sitting on my desk, of how stupid i am, and how much these kind of stores don't care about their customers.

Buy something cheaper, not worth the money.

Promising
Alex Pintinho, 16.05.2020
I like the machine very much but I am not going to say it is very good. They could implement so much that I feel it leaves this machine almost not worth buying. I was expecting more from the sequencer, more from the clip matrix. It all depends on the future updates, let's see if akai improves this machine or not. I like it because I am a long time mpc user and I appreciate having ableton grid system with the mpc insides. I think this machine has everything to be one of the best machines out in the market with a proper update, and I am not referring to an arrangement but more towards clip interaction and behaviour as well with nudge functions for the step sequencer.

I don't regret buying it but I am not 100% happy, hopefully an update will fix that.

an A+ to Thomman for always delivering and helping out with everything.

Not really good, not really bad :)
Georgian Negoita, 18.07.2020
This product is a very good ideea of new era of making music.
But AKAI with this FORCE (3.04 FIRMWARE), failed to materialize the functionality of this "studio station"
CONTRA:
- heavy workflow
- low memory ram
- poor warping algorithm
- insignificant software updates
- Ableton Live 1/2 integration
PRO:
- made with quality materials
- good touchscreen, good resolution
- standalone
- multiple connections
- good processor

Totally Mis-sold based on spec not yet delivered
genetix, 01.07.2019
Advertised as with Ableton integration which meant export of audio/projects. Currently after 4 months of product release, still no Ableton or export ability so the unit is a brick in the studio as cant export anything out of it!

Terrible support and no roadmap visibility from AKAI and Thomann work take it back as 'its working fine'

Also midi timing is a joke so cant be used for live! Which is why i bought it in the 1st place.

Never in 20 years have I been so disappointed and mis-sold a bit of gear! Avoid at all costs as I cant even sell this on!
