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.


can the envelopes be inverted now?

I THINK so but I cant remember exactly, I gave up looking for it the other day hah. The MPC thread over at Gearhookerz moves so fast the day after he posted it, there was probably 10 new pages after because someone was bitching about sloppy MIDI timing or something. I think I remember the user that posted it now, Ill have to go try and search his particular posts.

Ooh... more modulation options for sampler? Count me in!

It would be nice to have a "Extract slice as Keygroup program" option also.
Or in 16Slices mode to be able to play polyphonically... you know like my old MPC 500 does :D

That “someone” was me and more people have chimed in since. It’s a real issue for many of us who sync hardware up to the DAW.

I hope the new update tightens up the MIDI sync as well and also adds the LFO features you mentioned.

No, actually it wasnt. The info about the Force beta was posted a couple weeks ago before you even got your brand new MPC (I found the leak info on page 869 of the thread if anyone wants to read what user discopotato posted about it). It was a joke, someone is always bitching about the timing on the MPC.

Oh and looks like there wasnt any mention of polarity on the envelopes either but were getting adjustable curves. Maybe they'll work like Ableton's soon.
