why not? people leak classified info every day. we are only talking about a drum machine. besides how hard can it be for any non-moron to record some sounds and upload them to youtube without getting caught? let's hear the damn thing already.

sharing a desire with others doesn't make it less selfish. you suggested he act in a way detrimental to his future.

one is a subset of the other. I'm not a cop, I'm a realist, and someone who does something that would be harmful to his employer would in all likelihood quickly become unemployed, and probably be unemployable.

Good would be having this guy put his career at risk over a stupid demo video being released before the drum machine was ready? Ok.

ok so akai was prepared to show it musikmesse but there was a mishap and now the project has become top secret. something here doesn't add up and i think it's time to get to the bottom of this. someone seriously needs to start an online petition.

From Nick Batt's SonicState.com podcast. Watch at the 10-min mark:

"Off camera, basically what they told me had happened
was the engineers were working so hard to get it
ready that they were up half the night and they just
plugged it in wrong and it blew it up before the show.
So it wouldn't make any noise."


(Watch Nick's facial expressions as he relates that.)

"Whether that's the case or not, or whether they just
hadn't voiced it and didn't want to present it when it
hadn't been voiced properly was another matter...."




Amazing caveat. essentially saying, 'Whether or not Akai lied to me....'

I guess I shouldn't be gobsmacked this is going the same way as the Aira threads.
Roland are liars, now Akai are too.
just chill out and wait for the product to be finished.
Maybe it blew up, maybe it wasn't quite ready. S what???????

Back up a little, there is no reason why audio demos should be such a pitchforks-and-torches affront.
It's absolutely not personal. The Akai guy is keeping up with the thread so I was just asking him to share what exactly they're working on for curiosity's sake. Are they testing different capacitors for the HiHats etc? There's no harm in asking him what's going on with it.

And you felt the best way to seek his trust with information that could perceivably portray the company's product in a negative light would be to grow impatient and tell him in no uncertain terms that he's attempting to deceive you.

Good god, the narcissism here. You're not even a slacktivist, you're someone who wants an audio demo before the company has completed them. Go volunteer and do some good for the world while you're using that analogy.

They're being respectful to a fellow member of the community and not treating them like a PR puppet 24/7.

Not everyone non-moron is that excited about being fired just so you can listen to an mp3 of something they know will be officially available to people well before it's actually available to buy.

Roland lied to you, and you were repeating those lies as if they were fact.

Actually Dan has previously said that MPC5000 OS version 3 was going to happen, it hasn't, and that the vintage modes in the MPC Renassiance are hardware emulations, when they are actually VST plugins.

Akai has a history of being deceptive, just as Roland are with their marketing.

If it wasn't quite ready, he shouldn't have pretended that it was, and shouldn't have said that he would put up sound demos when he got back from Messe, if he couldn't.

Seriously, all I ever see you do is go around the forum bullying people and calling all music companies liars.

Roland lied to you, Akai lied to it's users.

Care to explain exactly what bullying I have been doing?

Even Nick from Sonic State was sceptical about their excuse for having no sound from the unit at Messe.


On second thoughts, don't bother explaining anything, I am really not interested in what you think.

You are unable to accept that Roland lied to you, when given proof, you just can't handle it when someone does not agree with you.


Akai needs to put up the sound demos, like they said they would, or simply not make those sort of commitments in the first place, if they can't meet them.
