Re: NI Maschine+ standalone groovebox

looks great. curious to see it in action. hopefully they commit to it long term and Maschine has a continued long life as a flagship product. The original Maschine works with the software since 2009, 11 years is kind of commited I think. Granted, it's just an usb controller and the software product...

Re: Akai MPC One

Slight worry when I saw the news of One in fear of making my MPC Live obsolete. After browsing the specs, I feel relieved. Other than the battery, what are the differences that would make you still choose the Live? Just curious, I haven't compared the two yet. Live has: - double the midi connectivi...

Re: Akai MPC One

I was kind of toying with putting a blackbox 1010 in an old mpc2000xl case just because i would love to get the features but also get the size and buttons of an mpc. for the same price, I think I'm home. looks perfect.

How does that work? I thought the LXR was only for drums and not bass or melodies in general. The manual also doesn’t seem to say anything about pitch/note entry per step.

I have no desire whatsoever for it to be any larger, let alone the size of an MPC. With more CC mappings in the OS, it will be easy enough to drive it from something more tactile. It's got a USB host port for controllers to plug right into it. I realize I'm a minority here, but using multiple contr...

It seems to have all the features I want from a sampler, but I just cant find fun in touch interfaces. Put this box into a mpc 2000xl case with lots of buttons and not so many blinky lights and I'm in. I'd love to have som more tactile interface options.

Apart from the resell value, the UAD stuff is superior in flexiblity and general processing power, but lacks in the UI department plus the sound is a matter of taste. I'd say if you want to have recall available, size and power consumtion plus cables might be an issue and you like to process multipl...

You use the clockdata to clock your sequencer(be it internal or external, eg cirklon etc) and send note data the usual way. but yes, midi is serial so it can only send one type of information at a time, so if you have some machines on the same midi port of your sequencer, simulatenous note events wi...

RAID 1 - fully redundant. Basically, get two HDDs of the same make/model/size, and RAID 1 will maintain two independent, complete copies of the data. Actually, don't. If you get two drives of the same make/model/size at the same time, chances are they are produced around the same time. If one has a...
