It's fun to use but Roland has been selling the same device for like 10 years without any meaningful improvement. So this is an interesting proposition. The plus are battery powered and sample time only limited by the size of the sd card and the infamous effects like vinyl sim.
the 404 mk2 cost $600, comparing it to a midi controller is I dunno

what's your take for the bang of buck you get with the mpc one?
