New MPC from Akai available nov 2003 (jumped the gun a bit on this review).
Given the popularity of Akai MPC series, sure to be quite popular. Built in USB interface solves some problems with data transfer. Use of Compact Flash as storage should give enough for most applications and the lack of moving parts should mean faster load times.
La Casa Nostra Records & Productions Producer Luciano created a Phenominal Collection of Drumkits & Sounds for the MPC If you're looking for the IllestKits please contact La Casa Nostra today and stop paying out the Azz for Good Sounds.
