"Yesterday I was as excited as hell get my MPC. And Yes! I got it. Set it up. Looked at it...looked at it. Now what do I do?
I figured I could sit here and try and work it out with the manual. Or pay to get instant tuition, so that is what I did. I purchased your ebook yesterday and within 3-4 Hours I was making music. I don’t have a musical background really other than using a bit of software here and there, so your book worked a treat. Thanks very Much. I recommend it to anyone.”
