  1. worth the price! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2014

    Having something custom as this item, meant for me a lot. it took some hours to start to operate it (as new of the environment and akai workflow(always had roland).
    the refurbished item can as it is called. i didn t find issue already, beside the digital in not fit in his housing(i believe the polystirol move it brutally to the left(so it comes out diagonal from the housing).
    sometimes the thick pads are not fully responsive, even touching them in the middle(let s say 3 hit out of 10 are not taken, especially the first ones at the bottom).
    STILL, is an incredible machine worth the price and the effort to study it.

    for the fact is refurbished, i was not able to register it on akai official website. and unfortunately i had to pay a lot of money for customs (almost 400$).
