Meh...

Pads are useless. Knobs and faders are pretty cool. Cool having banks of knobs.

Keys are strange. They are kind of stiff. I can't say that I like them, but I'm no keyboardist... I bash on them, and it is all good, though.

Note repeat is dope, for those mpc tricks.

Arp is cool. Like the note repeat, just got to get your daw and mpk to talk to each other.

I haven't really committed to assigning all the knobs and what not while working on tracks, usually a knob or two, a fader here and there. I don't like assignable shit. I like dedicated shit.


Just picked up a BCR2000 to use as a dedicated soft synth controller, with hard mappings and 1:1 functions. Will make graphical overlays, have osc sections, filter sections, envelope and lfo sections, amp sections. HARD - so you can really start to learn it and play it with your body/unconscious mind. I like some vst synths, just want a hard connection to them.

This so much, whats the point of having hands on/otb control if you have to faff about assigning midi for ages in your DAW?

Well it is good for performance. Like when you're really getting it together and designing a set. Also of note, maschine as a standalone midi controller is excellent. It's editor is fantastic. You can do some complex things and output data the way your daw wants it. I found live to be like an insolent child, it wanted data the way it wanted it, and that's that. Well maschine could give live what it wanted when the mpk and padkontrol could not.

Just a heads up.

Not trying to hi-jack here, but is anyone here a fountain of knowledge with midi functions/assignments (korg/logic ideally) or have a link to an old thread that might have covered this? I've not had any luck with the search function here and the aforementioned company FAQs/manuals are not really giving me what I need.

[+] Spoiler
are you opposing the uncomming great neo bio mechanic union of us and the daw (the dauws)

or do you actually see a divider somewhere between life philosophy and euphamism-isms?

maybe :mrgreen:
