2.4 is on the way…Stick to the MPC for at lease a year. Let them update and work out all the bugs before you jump of the Force!!
This machine is fantastic and despite being very expensive it only has 2 GBytes of memory which is very little to work with media/large projects. I don´t know if the RAM is expandable but I think it´s not. This is the true defect of this dream machine.
I noticed you was on the actual Akai Mpc playlist on there site so try see if you can trial it for all us as you teach us in the real world hope to see one up soon
MPC minds are tedious. I want to see what a 303 head would say. I grabbed a toraiz for simplicity, but still feign for the sp303. But then I chop sounds up on the phone while I'm at work, and layer them with another app. But still need pads. Pads. Pads.I need a machine that works thru a brainstorm as fast as I can.I'm gonna buy this, but I'll wait till people start using it, and see what it can really do.
I got the MPC X but not too keen on the fact that I can't easily swap different pattern for each track for jamming and experimenting its just a pain (doable but slow) and even Machine can swap patterns, I was hoping a software update would solve this. So I got out my push 2 controller in the last few days to see if clips and 64 pads is the way forward, and deciding to sell the x or not
What about an arrangement view?? Will we be able to create full songs with it??
you think akai will be now releasing a new hardware update of the mpc too? cheers
Mekie ! PODIAS explicar melhor a diferença q sentiste entre trabalhar com o push2 e o que sentes ou consegues com a MPC? É porque fazes alusão aí à coisa!!! É como se o Ableton não te desse tanta possibilidade de "swingar " o beat??? Explica lá isso aí em duas ou três palavras! Abc..
I'm I the only one who hates this? the screen is way to far back and looks way to fiddly
Wondering if it supports VSTs? MIDI effects? How will be Integration with Ableton? how the automation works?
I love Ableton but it has a serious performance problem with big projects so I think having this machine is gonna help me a lot …
That is funny because push2 allows copying of pads …
This looks like Maschine bought out Akai ! or vice versa !
"Life of a beta tester", used it WITH his mpcx. In his opinion, The X is pattern based, the Force is clip based. I ordered it. They hooked me on the stand alone aspect, and since I almost bought the mpc live.., it was damn easy to justify a bit more for this one, I also have the X, and I am geeked.
waste of bloody money
I hear they are going to update the software to live?Very soon….So its basically the same thing but with the pads?
I think this is better than the mpc live at the push2. Hardware wise.
Software wise, ableton is way ahead of mpc. Imho. But theyre closer.
One question, can u pad slice on this like simpler in live 10?
I have an mpcLive. Do you know if I can plug an ableton push or launchpad into the mpcLive to use the same features? (Step sequencer/launch clips/more pads) maybe with 2.4 update? (:(:thank you for your input.
i wish this was inside a keyboard
The way of copying slices in Ableton Push 2 is to convert your audio to drum rack then duplicate you're slices…
Almost 5k subs bro keep goin ! im goin to ask AKAI to send me one for sure 🙂
I really hope they update the sequencing in the live touch and x to be more like the force. That will dreamily help my work flow. Or at least give you the option too.
I’m really excited for this beast, love that you can directly plug a guitar in the back and the track mixer and layout seems like a more straightforward workflow. 👍
It copies pads lol, he held down copy and drew 16 like magic, he said its so sensitive its like painting. Its that step sequencer for keys I miss on mpc😕
looks like your stroking the mpc force picture with your mouse pointer. lol akai should send you one tho 🙂i'm sticking with the live
it uses mpc software… the midi in is a complete fail… check out the mpc forum before you buy… you have been warned… akai is impossible to contact
I’m thinking that maybe you can connect a turntable but not in the traditional way. It would be USB a not the RCA/phono jacks.
They also didn't mention anything about how cool this device will be able to work with ableton live software, also what about recording the performance/arrangement. I think they could describe it better.
You gon make us all search ya page for that seq vid, huh. Just for that, now you gatta drink.
Very well described.
I wish they made a mini X. I get raucously angry in the fails with the knobs on the Live. I am not a finger drummer, I'm a KNOB TWIDDLER. I can get ALL my fingers all gushy up in the knobs and use all my fingers as an instrument with th knobs.
And that's not all,not only is it different from the mpc but it's not portable so yea, my mpc live stays toraizes go
I’m sticking with my X as well it’s not worth it for me to go out and buy this I also got the mpc LIVE so I got everything I need. I take my wife shopping like she can hit all the stores and I can just sit in the court and make beats outside the store
As far as the A/B crossfader. You can label each track as either A or B and then crossfade between them. I've always wanted the Push 2 to have an actual crossfader, but not sure its enough. I saw where you are limited to 16 tracks.
theyre stupid to not give u one straight away.
I am curious how the export is! I saw videos that show you can export and pull it up on Ableton. But if that is the only export option, it's a no go for me. I like the export on the MPC.
All these people pre-ordering. I think it makes sense to wait a while to hear the feedback from other users to see if its stable or not.
Check on YT "In the mix" this guy have it and he make some of vids about it on AKAI :3
I love my mpc x and my push 2 but they are different and has there own plus and negative but good for each work flows stand alone units I need to see more
I’ll stick with my X,gotta fight the gear lust man….I’m a happily married man and my wife is the MPC-X and I am loyal to her. Oh you got it Bad,I can tell by that look in your eyes,man……Gear Lust!!!! 🤣
Honestly I feel like the screen should be tilted
Live user here, feeling kinda like an x boyfriend, feeling left behind. I'm hoping I don't want it would make my life easier
I preordered one yesterday. Zzounds .com $1600. It’s $125 a month. 45 day return policy. Can’t beat that if ya hate it return it.Me I’m selling my MPC LIVE to a friend I really like the sequencing concept of the FORCE. The ability to have all my samples on all 64 pads. Masada mpc one of the beta testers said it’s Akai but it’s not an MPC so don’t expect to be .I was sold. On it. I will keep my MPC X. But it looks like less menu diving on the Force and more hands on.
if Akai doesn't send you one, we revolt!!! comeone your whole channel is almost about their product, you are like the best Akai promoter
I saw Just Blaze using 2 of them in a live set but im not a live performance guy. I do wonder how deep the Ableton integration is but Im sold
It has line and instrument input Im hooked I use the Push 2 more than the MPC but it’s features in the mpc that I really like so this is made for me also I sold my mpc x because I was using Ableton 98%
