This is not an MPC so for some it will take some getting used to. The workflow is similar to Ableton Live. And because I know Ableton there was no learning curve for me. I love that I can use MPC sounds in this unit as well. My only issue with it is when I installed my 2TB SSD drive it didn't show up at first. I had to buy an encloser than format it on my computer. Put it back in the Force for it to see the added hard drive. Other than that great unit!
