Akai XR20 Beat Production Center
Pros: Versatile,Easy To Use,Responsive,Bestest beats around,High Quality Drum Sounds

The XR20 is the coolest beat producing machine if I'm either on the go, or jus relaxing at the desk. The sounds are awesome, it's jus an amazing machine for so much sound and output for such a little device. Compared to other beat machines that are big and not battery operated, this is the one to get. I enjoy this alot. This is the perfect beat machine for any musician that is an " on the go ". All you do is add batteries and plug your headphones in and make your symphony.
