Audio and midi. Doubt it will replace track view, sounds like it's a new screen....could be wrong tho. Some nice shortcuts and setup features from track view...not sure I'd miss it, but can see an argument to keep it.

Yeah track view is the screen I use the less.
I would not miss it at all if they replace it.
This new arrangement view looks promising from the photos.

At the moment this is from the Force (But still in Beta). But I bet the MPC's are the same..

Has anyone ever tried to load the force firmware on to the live or MPCx. I don't know why I thought of that but I was wondering if it worked. I don't have the firmware to try it. Don't ask me why I would try it. Just curious to know if it works lol

Is that in standalone mode? If it is that's dope. You can put the verses And intro etc at the bottom.

Man listen, if they do that it would be super nice. Activate mouse mode so you can use a mouse. It would improve the MPC X/Live.
Expand the audio tracks 24 tracks stereo and 48 tracks mono. And if thfe mouse activation won't be put in the touch screen need to be more sensitive, better than my phone.

You are asking for the impossible. Next thing, you'll request, I don't know, maybe something like software that doesn't crash other software, when scanning plugs in. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Man, if they don't put the damn minutes/seconds on these screens...

I use track view to level & pan MIDI. I'd appreciate those controls in this view if it's a replacement.

Just a silly question that comes to my mind.
Is it not possible to send all tracks as separate tracks in real time through USB?
This way you could just open a multitrack on computer and record all you play in separate tracks so you can finalize the mix later.

And is it not possible to stream samples from sd card so we could use some field recordings on the background as we play?

I think those two features would open up a lot of possibilities

USB over audio is possible, but not implemented.
Disk Streaming is supposed to be in the next update.
