    Akai Professional XR20 reviews

    XR20 Drum Machine is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the Best I ever Had I use this product every day to make new beats. Its great for portability and inspiration right on the spot. Its also very easy to learn how to use; you don't even need the instructions. This is also a great crowd pleaser. The XR20 makes music fun and easy and at the same time, its a very professional piece of equipment. I have also meet a lot of new people fascinated by the machine. I have had 20 of my friends say that they are saving up for one. Im glad I bought it!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sounds, nice to look at If you're looking to do electronic music this drum machine could possibly keep you occupied by itself for a very long time. With so many presets, so many samples and a fairly simple interface the beats seem to roll out of this drum machine in no time. You can add bass lines and synth lines in a matter of seconds. I own another drum machine that's a few years old and good for the basics, but all the different samples in this got me excited. I'm not even really all that interested in modern hip hop/rap but the variety hooked me and has kept me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My son loves it! We were not aware that in order to hear the beats we have to purchase an amplifer. That would be nice to include this information, as the drum machine was for a 15 year old.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun machine, not so fun manual endless abilities with drum machine, but Manual doesn't explain them well. Odd quirk of cutting the first beat of A or B when coming out of a fill section? really no need for fills though as any patern can be used to add a step in step editing. Also the tuning part for each pad is confusing as the 0 point isn't always whats printed on the pad? ex: pad says A so if i tune up 2 steps should be a B,, but its not?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely B&H provided the lowest price online for my Akai XR20. I ordered it online and received it about a week later. It was brand new and works perfectly. I can't ask for more!
