I am looking for an external device to connect to Mpc Live 3/4 output.
I was thinking about something that samples and chop a sound in real time, maybe a granulator or anyway an effect to mangle and twist sounds in real time.
I just noticed Sp303.
Any experience with that?
Or any other suggestion?

Have you looked into iPad plugins? There was a granular sampler I used awhile back.

303/404 are pretty good for what your looking for. I might also suggest a kaoss pad.

elektron digitakt, best granular sampling and mangling, sp303 doesnt do anything granular, great fx box, **** sequencer, ok sampler for 12bit, either of these are great with the mpc, i use them all together

Can I use a modular Eurorack as an external device like an fx box?
i found a Mutable Instrument very interesting real time sampling mangler, but I don't understand if I can just connect it to a Mpc output as a standard hardware fx.

no problemo

connect audio to eurorack
connect from eurorack into sampling in on the Live/X

you'll need an (eurorack) case to mount the hardware

Great.
I was thinking to connect the output to a mixer in parallel with Mpc output.
Thanks for info.
Any experience with Mutable instruments Cloud?
