Re: MPC Live/X

I'm still a bit conflicted. As a standalone unit I feel it's uninspiring and a complete failure. The lack of modulation sources and mediocre effects really limit me. It made me realize just how much I rely on FX.
As of recent I have used it more and more to record my hardware rig, especially using the loop recorder. As a straight up looper/sampler it excels.

Using it as a MIDI controller is still on my to do list, as is resampling in controller mode.

I'd be much happier with it if the FX didn't suck.

Also, the OS is still buggy. Occasional disk eject error messages where it just loses connection to the internal SSD or it crashes on powering down. I feel this unit should be more fun to play with, but it just isn't for me.

Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.
