People ask for updates when something isn't working as intended or is missing something that should be there for the long term health of the product, outside of that, its about content. When I first started digging into my MPC Live, the first thing I noticed was the room for growth under FX, and I wondered if they were going to sell us FX-add-ons. I STILL wonder about that, but it also extends to synthesizers. I wouldn't be mad at it, I'm familiar with other platforms supporting long term deployment via paid-content (Rainbow6 Siege AAAYYYY)..so if they opened up their FX to outside groups, and they were quality, I'd pay. The same thing for synthesizers. I'd love a proper FM synthesizer in the Force, or a Serum style wavetable synth. They aren't expected though.
As far as FX Add-On for the MPC it would not work well.
How would you install them?
How would you test them to make sure they, aren't using up resources or cause other coding issues?
Also the MPC platform is not large enough, why would a 3rd party make a plug in for it, when they can make a VST plug in and the MPC End users, can work with them with the MPC Software or any other Software DAW.
MPC Expansions packs are not flying off the shelf, imagine what a effect plug would do.
Now if Akai sold 100,000 of these units, it could work. However, I'm not even sure they made and sold 10,000 units. But like most, I would like to see more actual bug fixes and GUI improvements.
