Now now, come on y'all, you're diss'n the 4k and most of y'all making those comments don't even own or ever worked a 4k. The title to this thread is 4k vs. MV8800 I thought. What goes on with the other MPC's bears no resemblance to the 4k's capabilities. The 4k uses a mouse and monitor too. It goes beyond what the MV does as far as intergration with a real DAW. Even though the MV's a cool stand-a-lone workstation, it doesn't hold the kind of merit in the studio like the 4k does. The converters in the MV are a notch better than my Roland R8's converters, since both share the same bit dept.
So when you praise the capabilities and functions of one machine, please know the same about the other. Thank you
