Beige is beautiful
I prefer the ii because i feel it is aesthetically closer to the era from which it came. I got mine looking crusty for $200. Another $100 in parts and a little soldering later, i have that crispy lofi punch I was after. Love this thing. I would only sell it if I got an SP1200.
The second iteration of the legendary MPC 60, the fruit of the collaboration between Akai Professional & Roger Linn (founder of Linn Electronics, considered the father of the machines).
This Sampler/Sequencer/Drum Machine came with 12-bit sampling at 40KHz and 18 voices polyphony.
The new features compared to the previous MPC 60 model are mostly the new casing and the headphone jack.
