    Wow... incredible stuff right there! Much more compelling than the X and Live, in my opinion - about time someone came out with a real life step sequencer controller - pretty sure this is the first such controller.


    By the way, the FL Fruity Fire Edition included is just the same as the regular Fruity Edition, but you unlock it by connecting the Fire to your PC.

    But it's still nice, that you have a 16-pads options so you can do live drumming or sampling. Looks very great.

    Maybe they could make a bigger vision with both conventional pads and the steps, but you could also use the Fire and something normal anyway.

    The thing is, I think it's great that Akai is making this for FL. But - like the Push, it seems they're more concerned with step sequencing and stuff like that rather than a traditional 16-pad setup. I've always wanted something simple with 16 pads that would work with most DAWs. There's some out there like the Akai MPD line but the latest ones apparently have "ghost notes" which sucks.

    But for this controller, I'd like to see someone make a beat from scratch in FL Studio.

    I'm gonna buy it. Think i'm not gonna use it as a Step Sequencer though since i sequence all my drums in the Piano Roll with FPC.
