The 2000XL had time stretch l was using that thing like a big dog. I like the time stretch in Reason and S1 better. But we shall see. Didnt even think about that feature .

As more details become available I'm noticing that this seems like less of a standalone MPC (4000 ) and more of a computer with the MPC 2.0 software built in. They are definitely moving forward instead of backwards but I'm afraid that most of the things that made the older MPC's popular are no longer present.

I'm right here man I ain't no beta tester though I told you I'm waiting til this drop and I'm gonna buy somebody's MPC Touch for like $150. Might flip my 2500/JJ/XLCD and pick up the X or Live this summer. Might not... Depending on if I like the Touch/MPC SW or not.

I just keep having the thought that I'm gonna be doing the same thing on the new MPC that I do on the MPC I got right now so why bother???

Dam sure the midi sucks in Protools from day one and I had PT and the mudi still sucks and that supposed ti be the standard.

Im def not a newbie. You claimed you haven't heard anyone complaining about the midi? I have to ask where have you been? Dudes all over the net want a stand alone MPC most for that same reasin and a lot of them are here! Akai has herad this cry if they nail it this will be ground breaking watch what I tell you.

No lie not to long ago I asked Petty Cash who comes here about the MPC Black and will the sequencer be as tight as the MPC xl he tokd me to make a long story short WAIT FOR THE MPC LIVE!
He is the one that told me about it i didnt know. So just because you dont hear complaints doesnt mean people aren't complaining.
Exactly, Windows is plagued with jitters from OS to OS. Windows 10 being the worse from what I've read.

I'm using Windows 10 with Maschine with a current i5 6500 and a 512 SSD. It's running great, but that's Maschine, I can't speak for all devices and midi drivers.

M-Audio's Midi Sport was a nightmare for me and never worked. It made notes stick and many other things. I could never say midi isn't an issue, which is sad because it's 40 year old tech.

@danoc the X seems like an MPC I can move up to over time.

they have to move forward, and hopefully 3rd party sound Libraries will support the format.

We need the MPC alive and well, I like Maschine but it lacks many things I need.

Does these MPCs have auto beat detections? Or a fast way to lock to tempo?

The 4000 is running SW as well, really the first one with complicated SW at that, very deep machine... Yes they are moving forward but a glimpse of the past is definitely still there hints all this commotion, one concern tho, hope it's built like the tanks of the past... It won't sound like the old machines either, would be nice if it had that 4000 sound (clean and big) it will sound super clean like a daw I think....


Edit: yes they have tempo detection that came with 1.8 (don't quote me on that) but it's there..

3. On the standalone MPC its called measurements and you can set it up to be very long.
4. It depends how much memory the MPCx has to do this. On the MPCx internal memory is 16 gigs and 10 gigs has dounds on it. So you might be able to do it.
5. On the 2000XL it was 999 tracks i believe. On the X it could be more or the same l dont see Akai lowering the tracks.
6. Dont comprehend that question.
7. If it does have 6 outs you can track out. To come back into the MPCx you would have sample the stereo back into the MPCx unless it has two TRS inputs.

We have seen only a few specs of the MPCx do you'll have to wait and see.
Excellent, thanks for the info. I appreciate it. Right, so I just read and watched the latest links. Impressive! I'm definitely in for sure now.

1> I've never used an MPC before, but I'm used to seeing effect sends, auxs, etc on gear. I don't use plugins for reverbs or effects, but hardware boxes, so I didn't see any "sends" on the MPCX except the outputs, which you could send to a mixer and get the same results.

6> right, so on some samplers, like Push2, you can assign different velocity layers to one pad. Like when playing a high hat and you want velocity to change the volume of the hats from softer to louder to make it groove or not stay the same volume, like a real drummer, but instead of triggering the hats velocity, harder or softer pad hits can trigger a different layer of sound. So you could have a bass note, kick drum, and whatever other sound trigger from one pad by how hard or soft you play the pad.

Cheers

The MPC X looks exactly like what all the MPC heads have been looking for. A standalone updated MPC that acts as the brain of the studio. You got your phono inputs to sample and your 8 outs to bounce your beat out to the DAW when you're finished.

As long as the OS is solid and the effects are half way decent it looks like they have a winner on their hands. Can't wait to hear all the people complain about how it still doesn't sound like an MPC2000, or MPC3000 or what not.

Don't there's been that many changes besides what they have shown, I'm sure someone will do a in-depth view of audio tracks and time-streaching, which is really cool from the looks of it but they was doing on a track level, I wanna see it on a sample....
