It was working like that until 2.6.
With 2.8 is not working like that anymore.
Let's talk about a sample that gets triggered with a note at the beginning of the sequence and plays for all sequence since it has the same length of the sequence.
On 2.8 When you unmute the track, if you are in the middle of the sequence, the samples start playing only at the beginning of the next cycle.
Until 2.6, the sample was working as it should, starting at the middle of the sequence, any time the track is unmuted.
So for me it's definitely a bug and for me is very uncomfortable that I don't have the chance to unmute my samples wherever I want.
I was playing around with it earlier and couldn't get it to be consistent. I had a bass track that had one 16 bar midi note playing a loop that was working perfectly muting in and out, but then a drum track that was a one bar loop would only unmute when it felt like it. It worked for for the most part but Id say about 1/3 of the time, it would wait until the next note triggered before it started playing again. The bass track though worked perfect every time. Its not totally broken, but it sure as hell isn't reliable!

I'd take completely broken over unreliable. At least you can plan around completely broken.

So apparently, 8.3 will be the update where everything is perfect, all bugs are removed, and we ascend blisssfuly into nirvana.

Can’t wait.

(Including being able to set a different start time offset for each track ... gotta have it.)

OK, thanks for chiming in! Thinking this might be something indicative to all Live 2's then. Hopefully a software fix can address it, but it's not a showstopper or anything IMHO.

Uhhhh... 8.3? Do you mean 2.8.3?

You are confused because I either can’t read or can’t count—possibly both.

Anyway—the NEXT update. Gotta have somewhere to fasten our hopes...

Well for me the problem is always present.
On drum tracks, with samples triggered at the beginning of the sequence.
Before 2.8, i could unmute the track an let the sample play anywhere I was in the sequence.
With 2.8 the sample plays only at the beginning of the sequence so no way to unmute the track and let the sample play in the middle.
That means instant track mute is messed up.
It should trigger the sample anyway and let it silenced if muted, and so the sample should play wherever you unmute the track.
So instant track mute is broken.
Also if you change sequence and that track is muted in new sequence, the sample keeps playing and there is no way to turn it off.
I repeat, it only happens to sequence long samples, one shot on drum track, triggered with a note at the beginning of sequence

Great, thanks.
So we can confirm is a 2.8 bug?
I just sent the bug module to Akai, hoping they read it.

yeah, if it's happening always or sometimes, it's still a bug for me, even if not exactly the same redundancy /people.

Could you also check if after using qlink overlay on track mute or main page (standalone), your data dial sometimes stops working?

Latch on Latch off - TOGGLE OPTION REQUEST

Some musicians need a latch on latch off option in the drum or key group program. This potential option would allow the sample to loop without having to hold the note down, draw long note-on data in the sequencer, or use the clip program. Attached is an edited photo of the Drum Program LFO Modulation page with the latch on / latch off option - if implemented, Akai would likely call it PAD PLAY Toggle.

Wouldn't this simple idea make the clip program obsolete and at the same time, allow the user to play endless loops and one shot samples with velocity controls simultaneously?

What are your thoughts?

It does not stuck.

When controlling the bar/beat/tick elements with it it's doing the job but it's not very smooth and going backward is really slow compared to going forward. I honestly don't remember how it was with 2.7

If force MIDI clips comes to the MPCs i see this method a bit "old school", but of course it can have a lot of good uses. Actual clips are... meh

It stops working sometimes on my Mpc Live after I use qlink overlay but I really don't understand exactly why, sometimes it works as always, sometimes it gets stucked.
Thanks for reply.

Can't reproduce. Is there a specific value you change with the q-links which could be related? Are the plus and minus buttons still working? When you press the data dial, do you still get the sequence select menu?

No specific value.
Qlinks are in project mode.
After using qlink overlay on track mute, sometimes after that I cannot change the sequence from the top bar on track mute with data dial.
The data dial just doesn't do anything anymore and I have to double tap the top bar and change it from the list.
It doesn't happen all the time.
Let's say 1 time on 4 more or less.
And it also happens on main page after using qlink overlay, but this I use it rarely.

Does this happen with one specific project or with multiple? Can you give examples which parameters are assigned to the q-links?

Yes, that is clear now. Could you answer the other questions I asked you:
  • Are the plus and minus buttons still working for selecting another sequence?
  • When you press the data dial, do you still get the sequence select menu?

I have to try what you ask me, I didn't check it.
Actually I never thought I could change sequence with plus minus buttons or pushing the dial.
Nice to know.
Tonight as I go back home I check and let you know.

MpcMc - werent you previously having issues with the Qlinks freezing or causing lag before?? You ruled that out with your hard drive right?

I wonder if you really do have a bad piece of hardware there. The Qlinks and Data dial are a separate board inside the unit, its very possible you have a bad PCB, or maybe the ribbon connector needs to be reseated on it? Kind of odd that you've had two different problems with the knobs now between two different OS's.. Might be worth opening it up and taking a look at the connections inside.

I didn't have issues with qlink, just the unresponsiveness and latency everyone was experiencing.
And the problem with data dial is not related to qlinks but to qlink overlay, which I think has some conflict with data dial.
First of all, data dial and qlink overlay cannot work together, you can notice that when qlink overlay is on, your data dial doesn't work.
But that's not my main problem.
I can live with that.
My problem is that sometimes the data dial gets literary stuck after I use qlink overlay, even when qlink overlay screen is off.
I don't really think it's a hardware problem.
My hardware actually is working better then ever, optimization with 2.8 makes it faster and qlinks are responsive as it never was before.

2.8 here too
the problem I,m having is in controller mode with the VST in CUBASE
the record and Punch in buttons have stopped working on the hardware
I can activate them in the software fine

All the other buttons on the hardware work fine

Anyone else experiencing this?
damn frustrating

I'm really happy that the Korg Triton VST is working correctly for the first time after the MPC Software v2.8 update.

I think the Psychic Modulation Phonec VST was working up until I updated the MPC Software to v2.8. Now it fails to load when I scan for plugins. Is anyone else having this problem? I'm running the software on Windows 10.

Could anyone with an MPC X here try the following on 2.8:
  • Select a plugin, keygroup or midi track, any will do
  • Try to select bank E, F, G or H with the hardware buttons (using shift or double tap)

It won't, at least my MPC X is not doing it. Very annoying as it's used to transpose the pads. In 2.7.2 no problem.</span>

Update: When pad perform is enabled on the specific program (it is by default), the ranges are now different for the pad banks. You need to set it to "off", "chromatic" or "progressions", then they work as before.

So much update, so less time to get used to
