I was surprised by Force, I expected a Live2 with more Ram and a different buttons organization.
I guess in a year they will come out with a new Mpc, maybe with 3.0 software.
Yes, and the MPC Live and X are really the MKII version of Touch and Renaissance. At this point they are not even manufacturing the LIVE/X any more. What the Akai Force did was help use up back-stock parts. The goal should be to, continue to update the software.
Also get new customers to buy it for $200 US and have existing customers to update for $99 US. I wouldn't be surprised when the next MPC drops, that they charge current live/X users to upgrade. Just like Touch/Renaissance users had to.
