NIGHTMARES ON WAX? WHUUT?
I'm a beginner where could I go to learn how to use this?
How does it compare to the Ableton Push 2? I have a laptop with Ableton software already so is it worth the premium over the Push 2?
I ordered one of these and I really hope that it's not a dud. I like the concept but my thoughts on Akai is that these days that they'll hit you with a gimmick that's not fully ready for the market. I've read the specs and checked out the testimonies and it seems like it's glitchy and weak on effects and instruments, I bet they skimped on the processors, the CPU and the graphics processing; which is unfortunate b/c the loyalty to the MPC is huge, Akai has super loyal users more so than any other hardware production machine. People would've gladly paid $2,000 for the MPC Live, they didn't have to make the MPC X. They could've taken this product and made it the most amazing thing on the market with good converters, rock solid CPU and graphics, great software (probably should've let the Cockos Reaper guys create the software) etc and the people would've flocked to it b/c the people are loyal to the product.
Hey excellent walkthrough. Quick question: Is there a way to choke a longer one shot sample when using "next bar" in next sequence mode? I'd like the option to jump around sequences with that function but when I do so the sample from the previous sequence continues to play. Mute groups only seem to effect pads choking within the same sequence. Any ideas? Many thanks
I think I'm aaaaaallllllmost ready to move on from my 2500 to the Live. Thanks for excellent demo!
I have a Push 2, a Maschine Mk2 and a Maschine Jam. I like the look of this but I'm afraid I'm turning into a gear magpie who's just collecting nice shiny things. Doe this Live offer anything else I can't already do with my existing gear?
the best demo I have seen , thank you , I owned and was overwhelmed , and returned it , now I'm thinking about it again thank s to your walkthrough , Thank you
When arranging a song on the MPC Live does it use the traditional "chain sequences together" approach, or is it like a modern DAW with tracks and parts that can be moved around (linear)?
A superb video. Well constructed and a great help with my new MPC live. Thank you for taking the time to make it.
Time passes, and I hear nothing but vox humana and a very small computer screen.
please sir im new in mpc stuff.iwould like to know if is possible play various different beats in song mode continue playing..120 bars song with different beats for example and not only 8 bars loop as i saw in majority of youtube demonstration videos…thank you
this really helped me with my mpc touch thanks Chris you rock mate
Is there a fairly sophisticated compressor and eq on the effects options? I don't know if i could manage without that.
Great reviewJust got one last week but haven't gotten around to starting on it
i bought the MPC live, had it for about 3 weeks and am so overwhelemed. keep in mind i am literally JUST getting into beat making so all this terminolgy used is confusing. however i would like to know if it is possible to do a sort of beginners guide for the MPC Live, someone like me who only knows a thing or two about producing. it would be GREATLY appreciated.
Is this just like a better, more pricey Korg Electribe?
How is the time timing? Tight as on the 2000xl ??
Very detailed and professional video. How is the sound? MPC LIVE vs MPC 2000
… not in sync… cool machine but the colors of the screen are ugly af…
