hello there

im thinking of ditching my LIVE for the X. reason: i just miss that hands-on control feeling that i had on my 2500 with the jjos. the layout on jjos was so nice you could navigate blindly.

as a former 2500 user, i wonder if the X will also give me that intuitive hardware layout where every knob sits in its perfect place and everything is reachable within no time.

im still aware of a few things:
– how much can u do from the controller, without using the touchscreen?

– is there a dedicated button for grid edit or quantize?

– can you shift notes in grid edit with the locate buttons and navigate trough the grid edit with the cursor?

peace

I just bought an mpc x last week.

I checked the MPC Live and the mpc x and they are quite different.

The MPC Live works on battery and is smaller, it's quite convenient but the mpc x dedicated q link looks more appealing to me for a home studio use Tubemate Videoder Snaptube .

The price gap is huge, so i managed to find an ( not very )used one at a good price.

There is no dedicated button for grid edit. You can use pad shortcuts for that. In 2.3 You can use the Q-Link to navigate trough the grid.
