I've been trying to buy the Akai Fire under the FL Studio $99 promotion for a week, without success. The buyflfire.com site says the item is in stock for US buyers, but every time I try to complete an order, it declines my credit card. I'm  attempting to buy through the email link Image-Line sent to me, as a registered user of FL Studio. Is anyone else having this problem. I'm getting nowhere with Akai customer service.

Didn't have a problem.  Have you tried a different browser?
Also check If you have any 3rd party ad blockers or privacy apps running  - they can stop online shopping carts from working.

BTW  I used the link in the OP.

TheSteven,  I've tried turning off privacy apps (don't have any ad blocker), both Chrome and IE, flushing my browser, different computers, my phone, different credit cards. Nothing works. Transaction declined.

I'm clicking on the link in the promotional email from Image-Line. What's the OP?

Maybe have a friend or family member use their credit card & reimburse them?

The problem isn't my credit cards or my credit, which is exceptionally good. The problem isn't Akai account related. I never had an account with them until a week ago. I also tried Guest checkout.

Some problems disappeared after I flushed my Chrome cache, but the purchase is still "Declined"

I've pestered Image-Line sufficiently that they've forwarded the issue directly to Akai. I've also figured out how to Contact Akai without a serial number, so I'll continue to pester them. 

This is the worst user-experience I've ever had with any online vendor.

Got mine yesterday and...
the damn thing doesn't sync properly.  Triple checked my settings, still no joy.

For the MIDI drum parts the grid buttons light up with the proper patterns but during play mode it's ahead 2/16ths of a 4/4 measure - so 2 columns off.
Disheartening when something fails to do level 1 basic crap.

Edit: problem was with USB port on laptop not the Akai Fire.

I finally got an order to go through. The billing address I submitted to Akai needed to agree with the address on the credit card account to the finest detail.

I expect delivery tomorrow. Hope the thing works.

Didn't want to leave this hanging on a negative...
Problem wasn't with Akai Fire but one of my USB ports.
Still checking on what's the issue with that port but Akai Fire is working fine.

Is it awesome?  Worth $100?  I struggle with the FL Studio workflow in general.

I know.  If you work with linear DAWs it's real easy to do that.  I've had FL Studio for over 10 years and have to switch my mindset.

After you adjusted do you like the workflow now?

Adjusted? I find myself making mistakes with patterns.   FL works great for dance genres.  The best thing about it is the screen real estate, awesome piano roll.   I always watch tutorials.   Patcher is really great.   Using something like Kontakt is not as easy like in Bandlab.

Yeah patterns is the difficult part for me.  Which is basically the entire workflow.  It's awesome for quickly getting ideas down but then when you get into copying patterns, make unique, etc it gets a little bit tricky.  And remembering what instrument in the rack is attached to what pattern, etc.  I love the interface though, and piano roll is awesome like you said.

 That's where I give it the linear effect.   Tracks and patterns match.  I name the channel and pattern the same thing.  I could never dissect someones full blown project. I find it amazing to see older versions of people cranking out great stuff just using 3xOsc on Youtube.   Look for Seamless channel on Youtube and you can learn a lot.  I have a subscription to MacProVideo and there is a guy how does FL tutorials.  You will also find nice paid ones on Udemy.   I think there is one just on mixing. There is another guy who does FL, Live, and Logic.  It's interesting to see FL on a Mac.

I like In The Mix and Busy Works Beats as well, great FL tutorials!
