    "drummin up music"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    I love it, The only down side for me is that it is going to take a little while to learn everything I can do with it. I had an Alesis SR16 and I liked it but the sound and all the things the Akai XR20 has to offer leaves the other one in the dust.
    Ease of Use:
    it isnt that it is hard to use, you just have to learn all of the different things it is capable of doing.
    Quality:
    the quality is great, very happy with it.

    "AKAI XR20 Drum Machine"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    It sounded ok. The unit I got was defective so I don't feel like I can give a good response to this.
    Feature:
    Has step recording and built-in sequencing. Drum input pads feel good to use.
    Ease of Use:
    Pretty easy to get started, and it has a number of built-in beats.
    Quality:
    Drum pads only have 8 different velocity values, making weird jumps in velocity unavoidable. The manual specifies to use unbalanced cabling to connect it to your inputs, and I can confirm that it doesn't work (!) if you try to plug balanced 1/4" cabling into it.
    Manufacturer Support:
    I was only able to get a response from Akai about the unbalanced cabling issue through their public webforum, they never got back to me when I first tried the customer support email system.
    Value:
    Get an Alesis.
    The Wow Factor:
    Meh.
    Overall:
    A nice little hip-hop focused drum machine/sequencer with some weird quirks.
