I had the S2400 before it moved on to its next "owner"

Lovely bit of kit, well made, easy to use....would never replace any of the akais for me but great as an additional sampler
I just didn't get along with the MPC... obviously lots of peeps love em!

Yeah those were the only threads I liked, mostly nice folks too but crazy off topic moderation so that was it for me. No hard feelings but no forums with guru moderating either :tu:

Moderation here is, in my opinion, some of the best ever. It's pretty tolerant and as far as my experience goes, very professional and just (I know some would disagree).

Maybe we need a new MPC Live/X/One/Force thread here? :D

Anyhow, good to see you again kcearl! :tu:

Totally down with that. The KVR community has been missing out on the new-gen MPC/Force for a while, IMHO.

I'll have to figure out that expansion thing, how to do it properly. I've done a ton of custom programs that I am willing to share. Anybody else having problems getting the MPC 2 software to work on the latest Mac M1 computers?

Oscar 1’s programme :tu:

Does it make previews too? I like Kit_Maker as it can make Ableton presets and previews…the Ableton presets are good for Force projects as its crap for exporting drums beyond a stereo wave. Costs $30 though.

I will buy that tomorrow! I have an MPC and Live with PUSH so this is a no brainer! Hope you get a commission :-)
