Build Beats Anywhere You Are!

Want to make beats at the beach? Or on the bus? Or anywhere else? The Akai Professional XR20 is made for you! This battery-powered beat production machine is geared for hip hop and R&B, with hundreds of built-in sounds and MPC-style pads.

The XR20 is loaded with a slew of drum, percussion, bass, synth, sound effects, and vocal and instrument hit sounds that are ready to be dropped into a groove. There are 700 sounds in all, and you can take them even further with the built-in effects processor that offers reverb, EQ, and compression.

But the XR20 doesn't stop there! It even includes a microphone input, so you can process your vocals along with the beats. To top it all off, 12 MPC-esque pads are backlit, offering visual cues for precision beat creation. Thanks to its small size, the XR20 can go anywhere. It can run on batteries, freeing you to be completely mobile.

Earl, you're an inspiration to everyone who says they never win anything! (Except the Crew here at GearNuts, because we're not ALLOWED to win any of our contests. Sigh.)
