I'm thinking of purchasing the MPC Live II but wanted to confirm something that is hopefully obvious to existing owners and users.

I have a large number of plugins I purchased in the past and I want to use these in conjunction with the instruments that come with the Live II. If I use the Live II with the MPC Software:

• am I able to use onboard instruments in conjunction with software plugins?
• when connected to the software does the Live II act as an audio device so I can hear everything through it...
• ...or does the Live II act as a controller only and therefore I need some other audio device connected to my computer?
• am I able to use VSTs/software instruments as well as a Splice subscription?

It's tough to know what configurations are supported in different modes.

Thank you in advance!
