Reviews and questions about the entry-level MPC500

Hello everyone.

Here is my configuration:
* keyboard AxiomPro 49 -> MPC500 (midi out -> midi in)
* MPC500 -> Pattern Rack (midi out -> midi in)

I use the midi thru function to directly access the Motif Rack by the AxiomPro

Everything works fine except ...:
* I do go multi mode on the Motif Rack (16 sounds for the 16 midi channels)
* I split the AxiomPro (different keyboard areas with different MIDI channels)
* when I play the same note (ex: C2) on 2 zones of the keyboard (I use the function octave + & -), the Motif Rack blocks the note (continuous sound, therefore) of the first sound
* I can continue to play, the sounds are well managed, but I still have this sound that blocked

Details:
* when I use AxiomPro -> Motif Rack, I do not have this problem.
* Thru mode (MPC500) is set to ON; I want to play 'freely' and not linked to a track

An idea ?
Thank you.

In fact.

For example, i play a C2 (piano sound), i keep my finger on the keyboard and i play a C2 (organ sound).
I can hear the 2 sounds.
Then, i release a sound (piano or organ); i always hear the other sound; then i release the last one : the sound keeps plaiying (the NOTE OFF seems to be lost).

Keep testing ...

It's the first sound played which stays alive; even if i release it first !
