This product is very hot. Thanks for all the hot extras. Delivery perfect. Ordered Monday came Thursday all the way to Elmira NY from Canada. Already doing hot beats and don't even know the half of it yet. So keep doing what y'all do. I will be getting that keyboard next.

I just picked up the Akai APC40 from HipHopTools today and I couldn't be happier. I ordered my MPC from these guys a few years ago and I was happy with the service so I decided to give them a shout about ordering the APC40. The guys took my name and e-mail addrress (they even remember me from my previous order) and within no time I got a got an e-mail that one was in stock! Now I got my APC, my MPC and Ableton up and running flawlessly. Amazing combo. Thanks again.
