I DO NOT RECOMMEND!
GreatSounds, 16.11.2020
Do not order if you do not really know the workflow on older MPC models!

I never managed to make a firmware update through my Mac. Also, If you want to transfer the license, you need to called them and they will send you to another company totally unknown in the industry. The whole system is made by many companies and none of them assume any responsibility.

You pay 2k for a beautiful dream, but when you try to work on it everything turns into a bad dream. It's not worth to leave for it not even a star!

I barely managed to sell mine in a second hand marketplace, in the conditions that he was and still is extremely new and unused and being under warranty for another 1 year.

I'm sorry, but I consider all the advertising on YouTube a big SCAM when it comes to MPC X. I will avoid AKAI products in the future.

DO NOT BUY!!!!- edit 2021
RalfMoss, 26.11.2019
Item was replaced... no issue NOW...Happy OUT.
I was offered a money-back ...still decide to give a second try with MPCX.
Fantastic peace of gear...as long as you don't get a LEMON

DO NOT BUY !!!!!!!!!!
Be aware. software/ hardware issue ...not resolved by service.
MpcX was sent twice for repair. Issue not resolved.
Not even bother to at least reinstall the software.
That is the service you receive after spending 2k.
If you would email me before sending back machine to me I would tell you that you need to play on it for some time for the issue to come up.

ps out of the VST packet that came with it only one is working. Something to do with the code. That is also a common issue.

edit 07 Nov. 2020
after 5 months of sending the machine back and forth, they told me that there is no issue but
...The service partner confirmed that MPC sometimes shortly freezes, however, this happens only under Windows 10

Its the machine that has a problem.
I was working on the pc while the machine was away with no issue.
I will be switching to a different supplier for my studio gear

This is a common issue
I don't accept that on the top of the range machine that cost 2k
