gotta give roland props for stealing the show at namm without actually showing the goods, and then delivering them six weeks later.

Classy! I am going to glue fake fur to mine.

I would be happy to supply recordings of my (non-Akai) rhythm wolf for a small fee...he's quite loud

I'd much rather hear what one unit sounds like, as I'm only planning on buying one unit... Hearing three units playing on top of each other isn't my idea of a good first demo.
maybe they all can sync together in a chain like the Monotribe



if you have several in a row is it a wolf pack?

The way the celephane falls around gene wilder as he stands there with that expression and pose while pulling back, is just pure magic.

I really can't picture anything else in any of these "new cheap device" threads. People take not only the price, but the product development process personally.

Not the wolf

I just want to make it clear that this post is humor and is not the Rhythm Wolf.

Hey esteemed Akai person! It's Thursday! Can't you at least take a phone video of a unit doing a BD or SN? No need for 3 way performance routines...

Do you guys take suggestions from online community onboard? Need any beta testers?

Meanwhile in an Akai boardroom meeting...

"Gentlemen, a handful of people on a message board want us to release a video of the RW before we're ready."

"WELL WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR? WE BETTER GET IT OUT THERE IMMEDIATELY! JOHNSON, I NEED THAT DEMO VIDEO ON THE INTERNET - YESTERDAY!"

Yeah seriously. I don't see the urgency. It's not like there is another option at this price currently on the market or in the near term. Some people act like a bunch of crack heads on this site.

I can wait, no biggie. Plenty of toys to play with in the meantime.

The fact that Akai revealed as much as they did helps with the wait. I didn't feel that good waiting for Roland to make the product announcement since they played us with such little teaser clues. Big difference in the repsectability of it all.

Sorry to bring Roland up again but just can't get over it. Ha.

It's called getting "Lebron'ed" or as some in Ohio would say "Le-boned".

Mr xparis from Akai, do you know when we will hear audio of it?. Impatient, yes, but appreciative if you could update us on this. Thanks.
