I recently lost use of my beloved mpc 3000 and am thinking about picking up another one or ditching it all together and getting maschine... mostly for the ability to use rex files and sampling.
when i was using the mpc, i could change the swing on each individual part in a program, so, for instance, i could have the hi-hats swinging at 64%, one snare hitting right on the beat (50%), and snare ghost hits etc. nudged at different swing levels etc etc...
is it true the only way to do this on maschine is to call up a whole new scene?
and is it true there are only 8 scenes?
in other words, i would have to use one scene for hi hats, one scene for kicks, one scene for snares, etc., if i wanted to apply different quantizations to different instruments in a program?
if so, that is a dealbreaker and i must say it is kind of whack... what drummer worth his salt would play every part of his kit with exactly the same swing?
please tell me this is not true.
can u not record parts in at whatever quantization you want within each scene on each pad?
