Good price. Having all of the keys black puts me off though. I guess that's why it's cheaper than the black/white keys one.
£75.65 in Red/Black https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Akai-MPK-Mini-MK3-Red/143862265402?
Is this like Korg quality ?
Keep an eye on Music Matter as they are frequently included in the eBay 15% off deals. They inflate a lot of their eBay prices but quite a few are good even before the 15%, so they become good value. Don't know how they price this Akai on eBay! The red one is £89 currently, so about £76 with 15%, IF they keep the price the same. Some sellers have them for £70 on eBay right now also; varying colours.
great bit of kit. got one for my birthday and looking forward to learning it. voted up

Ah i thought it had expired on Plugin Boutique! I'll use them in that case, thanks for the heads up. It seems like all the re sellers reflect what the offers the developers are doing? BTW I know Instant Orchestra is the simplified version, but which would you buy out of that and Personal edition and why?
Also same price from plugin boutique.
Thanks, OP. It's worth pointing out that there are discounts on other Garritan sample libraries at the moment, including: Harps and Pipe Organs (£39.97 each); Concert & Marching Band, Jazz & Big Band and World Instruments (£59.51 each); and Instant Orchestra (£72.50). I have ordered the organ library which I have been wanting for a while. Also, although I own GPO5 and think that it's good value for money (especially at this price), I doubt whether it offers "the highest quality collection of orchestral instruments ever sampled". Finally, as you suggest, the offers are also available from at least one other suppler – Time+Space – and their "normal" prices are quite a bit lower than the RRP figures quoted by Music Matters, so the savings are, in fact, less dramatic.

V-moda Cross-fade 2 Wireless Bluetooth Professional Headphones £219 - Music Matter£219
These have excellent reviews online by most any audiophile. Usually sold for around £300. Hope its helpful to some.
Excellent. BTW I found that when initially attaching the device to the Windows XP netbook I was using it seems to set the Windows output volume to a half as a default (hence headphone output seemed a bit quiet). I maximised that and the volume in my music player (Foobar) which I believe technically is for the best. Hope it works out as a good purchase for you.
Thanks, just ordered one from the Keene website (£34) - as it is over £30 it offered a free P&P option.
Fostex are about the very bottom of the "Pro audio market this box is no exception its 16bit 44.8k or 48k sampling rate which is just about the default for every motherboard. where as http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004GCV8TK/?tag=ho01f-21 is 24bit/192K -- good spot Mr CJ Voting cold cos it c$ap
Possible alternative. Got this from these guys via Amazon a few weeks back; not as fancy but better spec : http://www.keene.co.uk/digital-to-analogue-audio-convertor-with-usb-promo-price.html Unfortunately both these items now seem to require an additional postage fee. Reckon model I got to be same as these (well reviewed) : http://www.amazon.co.uk/607/dp/B004GCV8TK/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top?ie=UTF8 http://www.amazon.co.uk/LINDY-USB-DAC-Headphone-Amp/dp/B005ZRV07U/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1449224646&sr=1-2&keywords=lindy+dac
5mW @ 32ohm is utterly abysmal for a headphone output, not sure why you would use line level adjustments instead of amplification either. Doubt the DAC is any better than a cheap motherboard.

Presonus Eris E8 Studio Monitors£290
Great deal, with the isolation pad/stands and cables bundle is even better!
I know a few people who have these. Seem great quality. Maybe the cold voters have never heard of M-Audio. I've used their midi controllers and have always found them to be well built. Hot from me. Real cans from a real music tech company.
