Anyone else pick up the MPK MK3 yet? Got mine a few days ago. When I selected the "MPC Essentials" preset on the MK2, everything mapped to my MPC One and to the MPC Software perfectly. When I choose the "MPC" preset on the MK3, the pads don't line up correctly with either one. Just wanted to see if anyone else ran into this. The keys work just fine.

The keys and pads on the MK3 are both definitely a major improvement over the MK2. The pads feel the same as the pads on the Live. Keys don't feel as cheap and spring loaded. Still not as good as the keys on the MPK249, but definitely an upgrade.
