I knew someone had to have one here. The workflow and features are very reminiscent of the DJS-1000, which is why I haven't bought one yet but now I'm tempted by its portability, like a DJS-1000 to-go.
I'm pretty sure you can power up the Blackbox with the MPC Live via USB and then connect the audio cables for a portable sampling station.
This should be well discussed but in this forum, MPCs are the end-all.
You can, but the Live is already a sampling station.. unless I miss your point. In fact, the BB pairs best w/ the OP-1, because it’s so small, and it picks up the slack for the OP’s biggest shortcomings; sample time and sequencing. I do the basics on the BB, then get my levels right, and line out to the OP for it’s delicious filters, EQ, compression and the tape tricks. It’s a beautiful combo.
Here’s a quick smattering of that process. All beats / sequences made on that BB, stereo into the OP.
