This thread is in the wrong forum. It should be in the music production forum.
But anyway, If you're new to the production game I would seriously scrap the idea of buying any MPC outboard hardware like the akai which runs at a fairly good deal for $1,000 on musicians friend and spend HALF that on some quality software like Reason 4 (its fun, and definitely professional level. you'll love it) and a cheap m-audio midi trigger board and some decent monitors.
What you'll find after dropping money on a piece of hardware like the akai is that your just going to have to spend twice that amount of money just do do anything with the equipment you just bought. Not fun. Believe me, I've been there.
PM me with the following and i'll try to work with you if you're interested:
what you already own
what you want to do (produce, record, compose etc.)
what your working budget is
