Akai MPC-2000 reborn

Remember the Akai mpc-2000?  It was a staple in every hip-hop/dance production studio, and it just got a makeover with all the usb/midi controller madness.

It certainly appears to be more easier and fun with all the brilliant lights, and it looks like a plug and play model when matched with the right production software.
