Okay fellas so I'm a professional not an amateur music producer for over 15 years. When I say professional that means I make money for my music. I have clients who have deadlines and want their projects done within a timeline. I Only mention that because I come to realize that most people on this form are amateur bedroom producers. (Nothing wrong with it It all) took me a long time to realize that but after reading a lot of comments I realize these guys are not doing this professionally. Which means they have plenty of time to experiment and figure out ways to do things slowly. So most future request are not for professional features.

So here is my opinion I think the MPC Renaissance is better than mpcx ( not sound wise but workflow) but I feel they purposely dumbing the Renaissance down with the 2.0 software so the x/live can be better. :hmmm:

I still feel there's something about the timing sequencer with the mpcx that's just out of whack.

So of course they give use new Futures to cover up the bad sequencer like robotic/drunk timing adjustment instead of fixing the dang sequencer lol.

When working with clients I never use the mpcx. because making music with it I find myself experimenting to overcome the short comings of the X. Like Dumb button placements... Putting sample edit in the far left corner and having pad performance very close by screen. (Why!) Tempo tap button way too small (wtf) A cluttered and wrong color scheme gui screen on controller and standalone. :Sigh:

The Color Red on Hardware screens IS VERY DISTRACTING AND TIRING ON THE EYES.

I see many guys praising the live and mpcx over and over again about all these features and how amazing it is. (The Hype) I got to laugh to keep from crying and going crazy with this new age music thinking...

Ok so today I found one killer feature what will bring me back to MPC 2.X. Warping of individual chops in audio mode with holding CMD button. I was looking for an option like that, even was thinking about switching to Ableton for it.
