Hard to work with, but extremely useful
NameOfNick, 08.12.2020
First off: I'm not yet that experienced with the MPC One, as find little free time to actually sit down and work with it. That being said, I have spent some weekends completely enveloped in it.
It's a great drum machine. Playing a set of drums or samples is as easy and intuitive as it can get. I don't have any previous experience with velocity and aftertouch sensitive pads, so I needed some time to "get" them, but once you're over that phase, it feels just like tapping on your table with your finger (which I like to do, play drums sometimes also).
If melodic instruments are more your thing, you probably don't want to use just the pads, even though the MPC has quite a few different note/cord/etc. presets for many many different genres of music, so sometimes you can get a great idea by just slamming random pads. Pair up a MIDI keyboard and you're done. If the "sample your own instruments" vibe doesn't suit you, that's not a problem. You can sample them, but when you're recording your finished project, you can just *boop* change the track from sample-based to MIDI and record the live instrument (if it connects to MIDI anyway). It has millions of features, truly making it a hardware DAW.
There are a lot more good things to say, but you've probably noticed I gave handling a 3/5. The entire workflow is pretty damn weird and unintuitive. Most functions cannot be found where you would expect them to be. Some functions you would expect would be accessible on buttons are hidden in menus. Speaking of menus, every menu where you have to choose between a lot of options opens on only a third of the screen. This makes working with a lot of samples almost impossible, as you can only see the first like 10 characters of the filename (this can be worked around by using certain filenaming conventions). They could just extend the menu to the entire screen, the extra space helps no one (they even blur it out). Akai is pumping out features lately, so maybe they could polish the existing features sometime, which they probably will.
Tl;dr: Feature packed, can do absolutely anything you want it to, but can be finnicky and unintuitive.

The best but still no xlr input and no battery inside
MrFab__, 15.02.2021
In terms of workflow and size/weight there's nothing on the market like this. And it's still the BEST.

But is crazy that it has no battery inside and still no xlr input for a microphone.
It could also be perfect with the 16 knobs always auto mapped (just like on his big brother mpc X ) so you can mix everything and modify all the parameters in every window of effects, programs settings etc without the useless q-links (that limits to 4 parameters at the same time your setting up).

About the audio recording : just like in the daws , when u record you can choose your best takes. I dont think is a big problem for akai to put this feature on the next firmwares.

when akai will release what i've described, it will be the best groove box ever. (and also the best all-in-one to make music in a funny /fast way in studio/on the go)

But , at now, no comparison with all the other groove boxes. the touch screen and the portability are the main differences.

Unbeatable for the price
SakisX, 05.09.2020
Pros:
Standalone, compact ,many buttons plus touchscreen, responsive pads ,nice synth engine , sampler . superb integration with the software .
Cons:
-Can’t record audio to clip and loop (like force, or push 2). As a workaround you can use the looper ,but can’t “explode” overdubs to separate clips
-No pitch envelope (for real?)
-No loop end point (it’s tied to sample’s end)
-No loop or sample’s start/end point modulation
-No portamento
-No disk streaming (forget long tracks)
-Bugs on current 2.8.1 firmware
-Terrible content browser
-SD card not showing on PC

Overall ,it’s great piece of gear ,already knew the current limitations (you can download the free MPC Beats software to get an idea, or demo the MPC Software but on hardware navigation is way easier) , hopefully the current bugs would be fixed soon.

Creates nasty ground loop if USB connected to the PC and output is connected with the audio interface. I fix it with USB 1.1 galvanic decouple which adds more cost the product. For instance my Novation Bass Station is used the same way but the company is smart and no ground loops. Not max on features as they decided to remove the sd card transfer via USB.
