Peace, Maschine fam. Recently I bought an MPC Studio Black, and, even though the learning curve was slightly steep, I got used to the workflow and am loving it (but I'm still IN LOVE with Maschine). Now, after getting comfortable with both workflows, I have come to realize that when I'm in Maschine, I find myself wanting to extract from samples, to make new samples, something that made it easier for me to understand sampling in the MPC. I know that each one has their own way of getting the job done, but, damn NI, this is a simple feature that you could implement. Example: In Maschine, load the whole sample (to a pad, mind you!), go through it, look for parts, but it's only by way of Duplication, then I have to clear the pad the "whole" sample came from. In the MPC, I load the "whole" sample, search for parts, hit (Process), select "Extract" and voila, new sample to work with. I'm still married to Maschine, but my mistress's name is MPC.
