Care to detail?


There where many leaks on FB group page and gearslutz such as 3 new synths, disk streaming for audio tracks and 2 scenarios for usb audio , external interface support or acting like a 32 channel interface as standalone in the PC . The later ,if class compliant ,is very interesting for iPads :)
Hopefully ,they'll land on next update and included on MPCs .
PS. I don't even have Force , it's just info gathered around

The most important detail in that beta leak, THE SAMPLER FINALLY GETS MORE MODULATION!!!
Apparently there's now a dedicated pitch envelope and offsets to apply to the mod destinations too.
Didn't see any mention of a bi-polar LFO yet though but at least we got the pitch envelope. If they fix that LFO, I might think about ditching my EMU finally.

No but I could theoretically work a lot faster that way. :lol: I actually start most of it on the Live anyways, and once I start filling up the tracks that's when stuff gets moved over to the EMU, and from there the sounds usually change because of what the EMU can do. I like to keep things with a track per output so once I hit six in the MPC, everything else goes to the EMU or Ill swap the sample out and try to create the sound on one of my synths. I doubt I would ever get rid of it though (unless they start going way up in price haha), that thing rules and sounds so awesome.

I'm sure I'd notice if someone mentioned this. Pitch envelope was the most basic thing missing from the sampler and modulation was very poor
Do you have any link stating those features ?
