Lmao lol yeah they laid off people like Avid laid off 1,000 people that was crazy.

NI don't support offline computers so l won't support them like that.

Hope that rights the ship for them a little bit.

When I was looking for some new inspiration I bought Komplete. I was pleasantly surprised that I found more use out of it than I initially hoped. Never owned their hardware though.

Where is that orange maschine from? Is it on a custom stand?

the Live should have been naturally tilted as I said in the beginning instead of being flat. Or Tilt screen like the MPC 2000xl. These just look dope, Orange and red limited editions. I'm not into NI like that but dam I gotta be honest from the look and how it works, I'm impressed! Sh**!

That thing cost as much as a used live new...
It can even function standalone much less with other gear.

Native Instruments. Its a limited edtion. They didn't make a lot.
No stand thats how they built the Maschine MK3. Really looks dope.

My boy bought just bought the Komplete keyboard. It looks like the Maschine with keys lol if you look on the side of the orange joint. That's the Komplete Control ALL BLACK! No white keys. Looks dope

That's not how they built the MK3. I have one, that's the old stand they built for the MK2 which also works with the MK3 and it only comes in orange for the limited edition.

I don't see anyone LEAKING any news because of their NDA agreement.

Looks like a positive move to beta testing though which should have taken place in the beginning.

Ableton Live control was leaked for the Live/X.

Seems like the video is down now. It showed clip launching on the main ableton page using the mpc pads, the Live’s screen showed a grid for launching and you can move it left or right to accommodate the lack of physical pads.

I got invited to the akaipro forum, I didn’t realize that meant i got into the beta. I’m hesitant af, my beta experiences haven’t been that great. If only I had a spare mpc live

edit...damn. I’m not really an ableton user neither...i think ill hold off for the next version
