Could be this iPad Pro I am using, but the order is not completing through paypal. I submit the payment and the PayPal circle animation thingy happens but the site just stays at the paypal page. The summary on the paypal account does not show the transaction.

I'm not at home at the moment so ill try later when i get home, but ive not had an issue at least completing payment for other products on the mpc samples sites using this iPad and Chrome browser before however....

I concentrate 100% on the hardware UI in this book, if there's enough interest I can make a version specifically for the computer GUI.

There's some stuff here that can help me like key groups and other features I never dug into that deep, but the basics of the mpc I understand. I will admit I fumbled for a bit with the new os/ ui but good now.

I am just starting to use the software to see what it's about. Took me a while just to figure out what's what like routing tracks while using as a vst, and even basic stuff like the transport. I could figure out how to turn my sequence off... lol

Do you think the touch tutorial would cover this stuff Or would the live be a different situation? Afaik, using the software, or controller mode is pretty much the same as a touch. I am sure some of this has been covered in the threads but I just started trying work with my standalone stuff on 2.0 this last weekend.

Seconded! As a first-time MPC user, I get around pretty good (well ... OK ... ) on my Live, but I'm looking forward to the tips 'n' tricks herein. So far it is well worth the price - nice work and thanks again, Tutor!

I rock both software and standalone and l am very happy. I love the midi handling. Plus l took advantage of the Air Instruments and effects.
