I was just trying to get some of your guys' thoughts on this new mpc. I guess this is their way of competing with maschine by combining computer software with hardware but I can't buy into it. A big reason why I use the mpc is to avoid having to use a computer program to program, sequence, edit, and put together beats. I really appreciate how it's a stand alone piece of equipment and the only time I'm using a software program is when I'm recording vocals.
My disregard for it might be because I don't want to spend the time to learn an entirely new machine and computer program or the fact that I'm sample-based producer and don't feel like this technology would benefit me in making the music I enjoy making.
Regardless, if anyone has any thoughts and would like to discuss this further I'd enjoy to read what you have to say.
(Too bad they discontinued the 2500)
