    In the interest of scientific experimentation, I am going to test drive the new Pioneer DJS-1000 for the winter as well. It's simple and quite limited, but it's extremely playable and it has pitch faders/nudge button so it'll line up with my dj rig perfectly, and manually, every time. At that point, my groovebox/DAW situation can be judged not on it's ability to be playable and production friendly, but just the latter. That may change things in my mind.

    I'm telling you guys, InMusic has the hardware (MPC X/MPC LIVE) in house, as well as the Denon Prime units (SC5000) which are all MCS products. They only need to throw the MPC Live faceplate (pads, knobs) into the Denon Prime shell (right where the 8 pads and the platter live) and do a quick application which behaves like the Pioneer Toraiz/DJs-1000 software & they'll have a murderously fun little box that can... wait for it... Open in any other daw as a VST running through the controller (for when you want to expand the project on your computer).

    BOOM!

    I keep using the machine studio just because I own it as well as the Live for sh*ts and giggles. The MPC is dope and fun as hell to work with. If NI really treated these units as a threat I wonder if these posts or their units short comings would even exist.

    That’s the thing though. I’m not emotionally invested like some here are. I just want a dope product to work with. Being s fanboy benefits no one other than the maker of such hardware. Nothing wrong with being objective.

    Sure... it was moved here because we are scared to death everyone on the forum runs away to buy MPC's... definitively not because a thread named MPC X in the Maschine forum is off topic.... :rolleyes:

    Not that serious thus the B2k joke... although implying we move threads to censor the forum does annoy me a bit.

    Completely agree, well coming up on just almost a year and have seen two major updates in that timeframe that made these boxes completely different and fun to work with beasts! Love being able to touch the screen and work that way if I do choose too.

    My Mk3, jam, s61 and CE are all on the production desk, but my dj booth now has an MPC X & Akai Force.

    I use to own Studio and K61 sold it after I bought the MPC X.. I should have kept the K61 since I bought A25 just so I can toggle through the software while its a VST in the MPC software....

    I think the Ni stuff is amazing & it’s a vast array of tools that all map to the controllers in a way that I do appreciate.

    Time will tell. I disliked the MPC daw when I owned the Live. I’m hoping that the combo with the Force means I’ll only need the MPC to handle drums & vinyl samples, and the addition of the controls on the X will combine in a way that works better for me.

    Add the Force for synth layers and clip-based organization & think it’ll be really cool

    I’ll probably swap my S4.3 for the Denon Prime as soon as someone puts out a video confirming sync over Ethernet to the Force.

    Yeah, and the “bounce to standalone mode” means one click from Kk plugin to audio rack in MPC... easy.
