1. Ableton Live
2. Roland sp808
3. Getting rid of my Touch and reverting back to the Ren.

It took me a while to get used to Ableton but I'm glad I did. I still wish it had tab to transient and waveform gain control like other Daws.

Cool.
You're getting rid of the Touch? Wow that's a shocker for real.
Time out -/-! Ab Live don't have tab to transient and no waveform gain?
Dam dude Studio One Has both and its on its 3rd version. Smh

That refill will have some of the sounds but the Virus Ti literally has hundreds of banks you can download for free from Access... And you still won't have the Ti's filters,envs,fx,etc.....

There is clip gain in live of course and it does have pretty advanced transient detection features, it doesnt behave like pt in that regard because editing is not it's main focus but you can get the job done too.

I bought into the new Akai standalone.

Biggest problem is that they haven't delivered it yet.

Yeah true, but I will have every sound from it, 60 gigs, on 12 DVDs, you do know Reason has filters, envs, Fx etc right? Plus I can add more affects to it in Reason the way the chain is in Reason, I can get more crazy in Reason than on the Virus. Hey the buyers of music won't know if its a Virus or not only we will LOL They can care lets.

HOLY CRAP!!!

This thing is sweeeeeeeeeeeetttttttt! But I thought they were going to make it small like the MPC Touch? And it has touch screen! Oh my GAWD!!!! WHY IN THE HELL DIDN'T YOU START A THREAD ABOUT THIS ALREADY DUDE WTF! LOL

I can buy into this, if this is stand alone, That will be in my studio, Problem solved!!! That is bananas! I need to see the specs and know that I don't have to record into an interface but use usb to slide my loops into the computer then I can bring it up in Reason or S1. That's what the heck they should of made in the first place, those that got the Ren and Touch are going to be PISSED OFF! lol That's why I didn't buy into it, my moto, "Wait for it, wait for it" LOL This might be the biggest seller, watch how many touches and Rens go on ebay lol

There is clip game and a tab to transient "workaround " in Live. The clip gain isn't implemented very well like other daws.

Yeah tab to transient in the traditional since in ableton would be just plum cray but it is very capable with out it,cut grid off and make precise cuts.. Stick with it bro, ableton can do things no other DAW can do,get at me if you need help/info

You said you've been waiting a long time for such mpc to be launched, why dont you wait a lil more just to get the reviews (the serious ones with a few month of use)... The mpc slouch was meant to be some next level stuff and happend to be a big let down for a lot of it's users, when you look at the vids you can see how ugly and menu driven the interface is.

The MPC Ren was almost perfect except it wasn't hybrid.

Once that beast gets V2.0 and the new HW box has all the I/O and the screen then we are talking.

Audio tracks and midi is what punters have been wanting since previous iterations.

The Toyraiz doesn't even come close.

If Nukai get this right then the MPC X could be there best seller yet.
I want one box to rule them all and don't even care about plug ins.

I will just go out and get another compressor, OTB mastering stuff and a Tascam 2track for mix down.

Cheers

I got a new regular job in 2016, so most of my paycheck when into upgrading my studio. Most significant purchases were a new On-Stage Stands tiered DAW desk, upgrades to Cakewalk SONAR Platinum and Presonus Studio One Professional v3, new audio interface (Focusrite 18i20 2nd Gen), new keyboard controller (Novation Impulse 61) and new MIDI interface (MOTU Microlite). I also got into some of the Roland Boutique toys (TR-09 and TB-03).

I also finally got my Juno 106 (bought in 2006) repaired with the coverings removed from the 80017a chips and one of them replaced with an Analogue Renaissance clone. I finally can enjoy this synth to its fullest after an entire decade!

But most significantly, I had a grown-up moment when I left the world of pirated software behind and finally bought legit copies of NI Komplete 11 and Waves Diamond bundle.
