I can't say its fully stable but things are being cleaned up as Akai drops newer versions.

I'm not (yet) a subject matter expert on the MPC live/x but one reason for having the LIVE (and the X being home) is being able to use the mpc X/Live bible during my downtime when i am away from my lab/on the road to brush up on my skills and better learn the instrument.

i took thips photo today showing i can set up a "popup" learning center in sconds...


I remember getting the MPC2KXL "bible" waaaay back in the day. that really helped me be less intimidated about that instrument and it turned me into a BEAST!

using an ipad to read and using the LIVE to practice with is fun. all the sounds/programs, seq. one needs is in there.

so this post is more for the middle of the road cats who are thinking about investing in the bible..

be like nike.. JUST DO IT!

I'm a long time lurker on this forum and decided to make an account to be apart of this dope community. I picked up the Bible during the black Friday sale and I can't thank you enough Andy! I've already read half and I found some many little things I didn't know I could do. I'm very impressed!

Thanks again and Peace!
