Newbie here, just getting used to MPC workflow. Is there a way to purge unused programs from the hardware only? I found "purge samples" but I feel like it's not purging programs that are associated with those unused samples. The manual has nothing about this. Thanks.

Also, I find the quantization button in grid view wayyyy too small - the one in the upper left part of the grid that let's you select 16th's, 8th's, etc. I hope they move that to a better spot in future updates.

Finally, I find it a little opaque to arrange songs. I assumed there would be an interface like korg gadget or even Maschine with a better overview of how are sequences arranged in a more visual manner. That may possibly be a deal breaker for me, coming from those paradigms. Time will tell.

Forgot to mention - in GRID, hold down SHIFT and press the TC button to change quantise setting.

Correcting my own post, but another (quicker) way to change quantise in GRID EDIT - hold down NOTE REPEAT and the quantize options appear at the bottom of the screen (1/4 - 1/8 - 1/16 etc).
