Over some years I've owned various entry level synths and drum machines (among them some P.O.'s) and of course the OP-1 (my first 'serious' synth).
Now after some thinking and getting a pretty good deal I finally bought an Akai MPC 500. And I think thanks to Teenage Engineering I kind of hate the MPC... T.E. got me used to immediately get creative and make music after turning on a device. That I can't do with the MPC. I know it's a very useful machine but the learning curve is getting boring.
Maybe that device is not for me, maybe I need to tinker more... But I think TE's awesome design and User Experience / User Interface is to blame.
