Akai have now left the cat out of the bag with the release of the MPC X - the flagship stand-alone MPC unit.
As well as being full stand alone, it runs the also new MPC V2.0 software natively.

In addition there are 8 CV gate outputs so you can run external synths as well as all the usual sample and audio and MIDI tracks.
