I was reminded this morning via email from Akai Pro.
Looks fairly complete, and runs either standalone or as a DAW plug-in. Appears to be based on an emulation of the MPC hardware, and then some. Includes chopping samples, sample editing, and a chords and scales mode for melodics and progressions.
With a collection of 3 plug-in instruments, (Tubesynth -VA style tube synth, Electric -Rhodes style electric Piano, and Bassline - for deep low end), plus F9 sample based instrument collectio
