Almost perfect - but instable
MeisterSchnubbel, 19.02.2021
I love the sound of the Force. It is an awesome sampler, has nice synth engines. For me, it is an almost perfect machine.

I wanted to use the Force as Groovebox with the possibility to record and loop voice via microphone and electric guitar. In theory this is very much possible but, as far as I had to learn (update 3.0.6), there are some downsides:
- No overdub possible for audio tracks (microphone and guitar)
- no more live audio for the selected channel as soon as you recorded something.
- only live audio for the selected channel - means no mic and guitar at the same time or while you use the force pads to play bass or drums.

Now this all would have been kind of acceptable for be. Maybe they fix these issues in the next updates. What's not acceptable for me is: The Force does freeze or spontaneously reboot from time to time and I have not figured out what to do to avoid crashes like these. This is a no-go for live performance.

Therefore I must send back the Force even though i liked the idea to have one-machine-that-suits-all-my-needs.

Get's better with time (and updates)
M4ciej, 15.01.2021
Not long ago there was a great disturbance in the Force, as if all the owners suddenly cried out in joy and were suddenly able to create more freely. Yes I am using puns to review this. I'm strong with the Force, especially after 3.0.5 Firmware update and the Force is with me. There is a lot to unpack here and a video will probably be a better medium for it. My main point here is that I thought I was buying a pretty capable standalone device, and It was good for what it was but now with all the updates AKAI transformed it into something much better than I thought. I can't wait to see what will be added in the future.

Promising
Alex Pintinho, 16.05.2020
I like the machine very much but I am not going to say it is very good. They could implement so much that I feel it leaves this machine almost not worth buying. I was expecting more from the sequencer, more from the clip matrix. It all depends on the future updates, let's see if akai improves this machine or not. I like it because I am a long time mpc user and I appreciate having ableton grid system with the mpc insides. I think this machine has everything to be one of the best machines out in the market with a proper update, and I am not referring to an arrangement but more towards clip interaction and behaviour as well with nudge functions for the step sequencer.

I don't regret buying it but I am not 100% happy, hopefully an update will fix that.

an A+ to Thomman for always delivering and helping out with everything.

Not really good, not really bad :)
Georgian Negoita, 18.07.2020
This product is a very good ideea of new era of making music.
But AKAI with this FORCE (3.04 FIRMWARE), failed to materialize the functionality of this "studio station"
CONTRA:
- heavy workflow
- low memory ram
- poor warping algorithm
- insignificant software updates
- Ableton Live 1/2 integration
PRO:
- made with quality materials
- good touchscreen, good resolution
- standalone
- multiple connections
- good processor
