To each their own I guess. To me the 4K and all that came after was the end of my interest in Akai. I even sold my 2KXL last year because I couldnt give myself any good reason to keep such an harsch sounding sampler.

I think I'll get myself an OP-1 next. Played with it at a friends house the other day and the sound , fullness and width was incredible. I was literally blown away by that kid toy looking thing.
