Oh hell man if you have all those MPCs you shoukd be good on the sound you want.

When l want that lush, warm tube sound l know exactly what to use. Thats why l miss my Yamaha O2R digital mixer.

Aren't you planning to run the live through a mixer? What mixer do you have at the moment?

For me it was price if I had the extra cash I would have bought the mpc x but I just picked up the analog heat and the toraiz not long ago.

Akai MPC X Standalone Sampler & Sequencer | PSSL

I never ordered from them, my only experience with them was ordering a catalog by phone and it arrived 5 months later but thats beside the point.
They say tomorrow they will have it. So l put in to let me know when it arrives. 17% off not bad.

I have a bad habit of holding on to gear no Matter what. Over the years I have bought lots of gear and I usually just stash it in the attic rather then sell it.

Never owned one, but recorded on it many times.

Cold, sterile sound...

When it hit, people were so excited, because of the moving faders and everything snapping into place...but honestly, at that time a Soundtracs Topaz, which costed like 1/4 of it, kicked its ass sonically by like 4x...

You never had an O2R so you don't know the sound. So who's the oxymoron now?! Just telling it how l see it.

First of all, an oxymoron is a comparison between two things, so technically I alone can't be one, unless I'm being conflated with something.

...and, did you not read the part where I said I recorded on it many times? That gave me a direct experience with it.

It's a cold, sterile sounding console. Which is not just my uncorroborated take, it's pretty much the consensus AFAICT...

No l didnt read it! You were on one and said its a cold sterile console? Nah wrong info its not. Im on you tube many vids of me and its sitting right there. You must be talking about the newer version the Yamaha O2R 24/96 now that was transparent, cold and whatever you wanna call it. And l had that one too. Im on youtube with that one too.

So take away the oxy and keep the moron part.

Actually, if this forum is any indication, A&H has really dropped the ball with their digital consoles. Very bad CS, precipitous price drops, numerous issues with SW/Firmware, general problems with functionality, unfulfilled promises, etc...

Again, if you payed any attention to the concerns their customer base had, you'd be foolish to take a risk and jump on board with them.

...though as they say, and I hate to use the cliche, but YMMV...(if you're lucky I guess)

lol your preception is classic lol l never even leaned to type l was getting one. Im an SSL man and if l were to get a bonified board that's what l would get

Know 2 people who have the AH GLD-112 and they (one female and one male) have no issues and they praise it so....

Im not tracking AH customer base. So ummm...

All lm tracking now is that dam MPCx that's it!
