MPC X

Hi sirs.
My name is Eric Clay,before digital Audio Workstations became a norm I have been a faithful Akai Mpc user. As a producer of hip hop music,I would rent studio time and watch engineers record and sequence my song using the mpc60.
So when I was ready to become more independent and record my own music, I bought the mpc 2000 in around 1999 or 2000. I then bought the 2000xl. I eventually moved to the protools daw to gain access to more features in mixing and mastering.
I hoped Akai would make an mpc that operates with the computer but instead the renaissance was introduced. The native instruments machine was more suitable for what I longed for so I bought it. However I sold it and bought the Mpc 5000 when it was released only because I missed the sequencing workflow,and i felt it induced creativity.

Many of us who bought this model were disappointed to find There was a defect in the sensor plate and Akai did not cover it even though the defect presented itself at unpackaging. we were instructed to buy a new one ourselves from mpcstuff.com . this angered me but I did it and it Never completely fixed the issue. So I went deeper into protools and the Mpc 5000 became an ornament.
Now after DAWs have longtime become a norm in music production,Akai announces the MPCX AND MPC LIVE.

*SO me being such a fan of the mpc workflow I find myself once again chasing it like a "crack head". Or a man chasing after an unfaithful woman.

*SIRS HERE'S WHAT I'M GETTING AT:
I watched Akai push the mpcx back many times and finally retailers say its coming out June 6th. So I ordered it as a back order item,and I was charged by the webstore for an item that was promised to be shipped to them from Akai on June 6th.

*NOW THE WEB RETAIL STORE SAYS AKAI PUSHED IT BACK TO JULY 29th. 2017.

*ALL I ASK IS AN IN-DEPTH EXPLANATION AS TO WHAT TECHNICAL ISSUE YOU ARE EXPERIENCING WITH THE SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE?

> I am just one person,but I speak for many when I say this is bad business. I got charged for a piece of recording gear that Lord knows when your going to release it.

JULY 29th IS A LONG TIME TO WAIT GIVEN THE FACT AKAI 1ST ANNOUNCED RELEASE FOR SEPTEMBER 2016 OR EARLIER.

I simply ask for an explanation,a realistic release date,Something..

I RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THIS.
BLESS YOU ALL,

Eric Clay EPITOMÉ RECORDINGS.
