I feel blessed to be one of the first to get my hands on the new Akai MPC Renaissance. Having owned nearly every MPC since the 60 when it first came out, this new model does not dissappoint. It’s heavy and solid, and feels like an MPC, not a toy controller. I won’t lie, the software is a little sluggish, but they are already working on the update. The MPC workflow is defnitely there though, an even though I’ve been on the Maschine for the past year and a half, I was instantly at home on the Ren.
How did I get a hold of one when they’re sold out everywhere, you ask? My man DJ Rhettmatic hooked me up with Omer Saar over at Guitar Center Pro, who helped me score this, and gave a super DISCOUNT on top of that! If you need any gear hookups, get with Omer, GuitarCenterHookUp@gmail.com and tell him wiz1 sent you and he will defnitely take care of you.
