I mean a reissue doesnt mean they have to build it exactly as they did back then.

Materialwise they can probably make them for a lot less and with higher quality.

It would be smart by Akai to cater to multiple types of customers by broadening their MPC catalogue and reducing these short lived controllers that get abandoned.

Yea, you’re probably right. Before posting I thought people would go wild, marching in the streets, arms locked, chanting for Akai to give us those great MPCs of the past back.

But... I was wrong.

Id bet tho if Akai really came thru with a reissue that it would be major gear news and even the EDM people would jump in on it.

Maybe I need to post this somewhere else. When you go on YouTube there is definitely evidence that old MPCs are still held in high regards and have a big following... so, I guess right time wrong place here.
welp sp404 has been successful in a market where there is not many alternative options im sure in a market that had more options people would b more demanding of roland.

also the 404 is a lot simpler to use than the old mpcs
