Yo Yo for all you hip hop beat makers out there, here’s a great piece of tech from Akai to drool over – the Akai XR20 Beat Production Station. Okay not just for hip hopsters I guess – anybody who likes the tactile feeling of whipping up some gnarly beats will love this baby! It’s a portable beat production centre loaded with a fresh sound library that’s designed for making hip-hop and R&B wherever and whenever inspiration strikes. Over 700 sounds cover standard and electronic drums, one-shot hits, bass, and synth sounds to easily create a total mix in next-to-no time. The XR20 includes reverb, EQ, and compression to enable MC’s and producers to complete their tracks. Plug in a microphone and mix vocals with your beats. XR20 runs on wall or battery power so it’s flexible and portable. In Pattern Play mode, you can trigger different patterns from each pad, so you can tailor the beats to flow with the energy on-stage. Bright blue pads light up with the beat to illuminate your performances as you light up the club.
