    With all of the overhead these companies have, I don't think they make much per anything they sell honestly. I've worked in sales before, and profit margins are slim, so I get it, I really do. I don't have empathy but I understand it. But I'm also a customer first and foremost. I feel like there is a difference with how Maschine handles its business, and howAbleton, and AKAi handle theirs. That bothers me. Seems like Akai got away from what they were known for until recently, and, hopefully, Maschine come back to doing the same.

    It's definitely not, and it's not a replacement for a keyboard if you are a keyboard player, but, it has the same functionality of using Maschine's keyboard mode using the pads, with the exception being you've got 64 pads to play with. Also, because the grid is larger, you can play the notes in many different ways on the grid, and not only chromatically (or sequentially).

    I don't think he does, but if he does he's either 12 or a racist piece of ****. Based on his writing on this forum I'm going to go with 12.
