Support and discussion about Akai's next generation of standalone MPCs running the MPC Software 2.0
By M.s Wed Aug 09, 2017 3:05 pm
We are asking for advanced DAW features that took prominent DAWs years to get to. Very unrealistic, AKAI or In-music just stepped in the DAW arena, can't expect them to be Ableton Or freaking Protools in year. Nothing wrong with the pressure we set as the consumer, but some of your requests are a bit absurd. Let's be more realistic with the stand alone mode requests, we know we got a limited Cpu...

You don't get the point of this thread clearly :Sigh: It doesn't matter what we request here AKAI will do whatever they like at the end..The purpose of this thread is to join all of our brains and give them food for thought..We don't care which one's are realistic or not..We leave that for them to decide..

Cheers!

Hello, I'm new here! :worthy:

it is called "LIVE" so here are some of the basic things it needs for live performance:

- routing mono samples to single outputs. Individual outputs instead of stereo pairs
- possibility to send internal metronome to outputs as required and possibility to load our own samples for the click sound (the sounds included aren't really clear and "clicky")
- in grid mode, there is the need for a cursor to jump back and forth between the timeline instead of using the knob to scroll bar after bar
- copy/paste in grid edit mode
- when in song mode, I would like to be able to tweak other things and go back to song mode
- an alternative to the previous one could be a playlist in the browser to choose the order of the projects to be opened for a live set

- In sample edit mode the ability to store sample's bpm for future loading.For example if you want to use Live as DJ decks when you loading for instance a House track Live calculates it x2 (240bpm) and you manually have to change it /x2 (120bpm).The next time you load this track it doesn't remember the correct changes you've made...This is huge!
