Alternative to MPC?

What's good?

I was wondering if there are any unknown grooveboxes out there that resemble MPCs but aren't made by Akai.

I'm not feeling the Live and X but I don't want to go backwards and buy a used 2000XL altho the nostalgia factor is heavy.

I own a Maschine and I know many mpc heads own SP404's.

Any slept on/unknown modern groovebox devices you know of?

Are there maybe any upcoming companies working on a groovebox?

IMO Akai would make boat loads of money if they reissued some of the legacy MPCs with updated specs...

Check Elektron's line up. Analog Rhythm MKII maybe?

Amazing sounding box.

Perfect for use with softsynths.

The drums on it are killer.

The filter is a DSI Curtis Filter. Sounds amazing.

I sequence my synth loops on my computer and sample them into the SP16. Sounds brilliant.
