Comments about Akai Xr20 Beat Production Station Groove Box:

Dont Sleep.....Its very user friendly. its does have some issues with storing large capacities of notes but if youre truly an arranger , you can skip past that and flip note variations in order to get that one little piece that makes the track hot.....
