NPC ONE (Bad Gear)

video upload by AudioPilz

"Welcome to Bad Gear, the show about the world's most hated audio tools. Today we are going to talk about the Akai MPC ONE. Is this groovebox, music production platform and successor to legendary instruments like the Akai MPC 60 and MPC 2000 and sibling to the more upscale models Akai MPC Live and Akai MPC X on par with its competitors like the Elektron Octatrack and even software solutions like Ableton Live or FL Studio? Is it NPC ONE???"
