Hey guys, As someone who has wanted to get into sampling and remixing for ages, but am quite computer un-savvy, I have finally found a solution that works for me. The Akai MPC-X. It CAN hook up to a computer as a DAW controller but it will also work as a fully standalone production console with line/mic/instrument/turntable inputs, 8 outputs, MIDI and CV. It's absolutely perfect for someone wanting to get away from the computer. Here's a youtube video on what it can do. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/embed/ThXcNU5fndI I'm in Australia so it cost me a fair bit (things are usually cheaper in the US compared to here) but it's totally worth it. https://djcity.com.au/product/akai-mpc-x-standalone-music-production-center/ Will hopefully get some tunes up from it soon. It's so intuitive and has made my life so much easier.
