"The Akai MPC60 is so iconic, it made the perfect jump-off point for this series. I want to make a genealogy of samplers from the late 80s to 2000s such as the SP1200 and Maschine, marking an evolution of both in technology and music. So much of the music I grew up with was produced on these machines and that why I have dubbed the series: The machines that made a sound of a generation."
Shipping on Friday (March 14th) is this Patrick Wong, 3" figure resin titled "MPC60" (after the legendary sampling drum machine of the same name).
