Ok forget the award winning customer service and buggy software for this discussion. (I've learnt to live with it). I have 1.72 SW & FW if anyone needs it :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

So I've had a Live 2 with a speaker issue, MPC 1000 with dodgy pads that don't work properly, Ren with Soundcard issue, MPC 5000 with screen issue, MPC Touch with plastic dip peeling off. My 2000XL was at least built like a tank.

Not needed, but preffered.

Don’t need better exhaust on a stock sports car but for some peeps who’re really into it it’s preferred.

Well, the displays on the 4K are trash though ... Eventually they will all get these lines and once it gets really bad it needs replacing.
Also, the encoder is garbage, do you all seem to forget that ? Working the 4K without it is not much fun so it needs replacing which is not expensive or hard BUT they do fail.

Nah, i do not think the 4K is a much better build than a 2000XL, 3K or a 2500.

Yeah you're right, in 18 years I've replaced my screens once and encoder potentiometer post once and replace the Slider Post Fader Switch and tact switches as a preventive measure. :lol:
