Guns 'n' Roses Keyboardist, Melissa Reese, Takes Akai MPC Live Challenge

Find out what happened when the keyboardist for Guns 'n' Roses met the Akai Pro MPC Live in this short video.  

"Guns ’n’ Roses" and "Akai MPC Live" aren't two phrases you'd expect to be found in the same sentence. But here they are thanks to Melissa Reese, multi-instrumentalist, producer and live keyboard player for one of the most influential rock bands in history, Guns 'n' Roses.

In this video of the Akai Pro Standalone Challenge, we watch multi-instrumentalist and producer Melissa Reese (Guns ’n’ Roses) deconstruct a track she created using only the MPC Live. Melissa's versatility is on full display as she uses the MPC to concoct a dark, ambient industrial vibe.
