Well, the system has some major, important bugs. You could search a list 
of it on the unnofficial support forum, www.mpc-forums.com, since akai 
doesn't even have a bug tracking system, at least outside.

The last version was released 1.5 years ago. The update has a great 
number of bugs still in it. This bugs could be corrected easily, the 
developers say, but they haven't been corrected.

Support from akai is very strange, you do have a support at akaipro.com 
email, but they usually just say that akai has nothing to do with it and 
that you should forget it.

The hardware is great... the service isn't... they could be so
