DON’T SLEEP: Memorecks “Akai MPD24 vs. N.I. Maschine Mikro” [BEAT VIDEO]

Here’s Memorecks giving his recent take on the whole Native Instruments vs. Akai Pro debate. Memorecks is something of an Akai brand loyalist as he typically uses Akai’s MPD & MPK series to make beats and perform live with. He copped a Native Instruments Maschine Mikro and he gives his take on them weighing the pros and cons versus his usual setup. The whole Akai Pro vs. Native Instruments debate will continue to rage on. Don’t sleep…

DON’T SLEEP [FLASHBACK]: Kero One Reviews Maschine vs. Akai MPC 2000 [BEAT VIDEO]

The whole Native Instruments vs. Akai Pro debate has been raging on for years now but it’s really coming to a head in 2012 with Akai dropping their MPC Renaissance and MPC Studio in addition to the new upcoming iPad 2 application. I decided to post up this video featuring producer/emcee Kero One giving a fair and unbiased review of the Maschine detailing the pros & cons of it versus the Akai MPC 2000 from back in October 2010. I will be posting videos from producers weighing in on both sides of the debate all day long since the debate has the beatmaking section of the internets going nuts (no Paul Wall). Don’t sleep…

Back on September 5th, I ran a post on Producers I Know following Native Instruments’ announcement of the new compact version of the Native Instruments Maschine, the Maschine Mikro which goes on sale today (October 1st, 2011) for only $399 (USD). Not only are Native Instruments bringing the Maschine experience to new audiences via the new Mikro, but on October 6th the iMaschine iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch app will hit the Apple Store for only $4.99 (USD) to coincide with the proposed announcement of the upcoming iPhone 5 sometime between October 4th and 7th.
