That's the reason I left AKAI.. The 4000 was dope but wasn't finished, and was buggy. After they(AKAI) acknowledged the issues, they went silent and when it became NUKAI(mpc-forums heads know the deal), instead of addressing those issues as promised, they dropped support for it and put out the 2500. Kinda like what's going on here at NI a little. MPC's have always been my favorite but after that I swore never again. Funny now because I'm reconsidering it. Always loved the MPC workflow too and was confused when I switched over to Maschine for a long time lol.
