I missed out on this one, but please email me directly when you get another one done. I live only a couple of hours from you, and pass through the Xenia/Dayton area from time to time, so I could even pick it up.

I'm gutted that I missed out on this auction!

rahlo! I remember you! Hey man! AND you're a Metric Halo user too. These days I have to use more applications and DAWs than less. Also PT LE 7.4. It gets confusing sometimes . . . Yeah, it's weirdly ironic that the better the tools get, the more varied tools you have to use! Fortunately for me, the...

Henry Robinett, fancy seeing you here!! I used to be a DP user as well, and had conversed with you numerous times at Unicornation. Anyway, Live has become a serious tool for both stage and studio. The peeps on this board are ultra helpful, so if you have issues/questions, keep banging away here. Hop...

is it worth the 100 bucks more then the 24? It is, imo. You get a lot more control and flexibility with the 32. You can basically make it 3 different controllers with the control banks, which is real cool. Rahlo what do you mean by 3 diff controllers could you expand on that a bit and looking forwa...

Ok so it's pretty clear that ultralites work fine over firewire power and some others like onyx. What I'd like to know is if any firebox users are using it bus-powered, and if the ability to do so is dependent on the firewire chipset or not. I don't even know if I have the good one or bad one in my...

I had a brand new Penryn MBP which powered my Ultralite just fine. I think the problem you're talking about is that the FW doesn't provide enough juice to fire up some interfaces (I distinctly remember there being a problem with Presonus stuff). A workround was to fire it up with AC connected, then...

I've been using the 32 for a couple of weeks, and am finishing up a short tour using it to do live looping and triggering whole trax. It has been a flawless performer for me, though the software editor did crash a couple of times. As has been mentioned already though, it's just as easy to program it...

Re: live and reason query. please help if you can!

Hi, I'm trying to control the rate on malstrom (reason) using my microkorg, and nothing seems to be working. Is there a way I can control the reason buttons via live like I would with midi mapping? I've been using these two programs together for a while and love it, just need to sort out a few gaps...

so is it quick to switch between templates? For example, during a live performance, is it easy enough, like just a button press? Some controllers are super fast and some have awkward combinations of keys/buttons to switch templates and obviously not for live use. cheers Yeah, it's very fast on the ...

Note repeat has Gate (for note length) and swing value (MPC style with a 50-75 value). The note repeat and time division buttons can be set to momentary or toggle mode. I have a friend who is in contact with someone at Akai, and claims that the pads on the 32/24 are the same rubber pads as the MPCs...

If the price is right :wink:
I got a chance to see the prototype at NAMM, and it is indeed very cool.

I tried it and couldn't get it to work. I think you can use the Vyzex editor for the mpd 32 to change the transport controls to something useable by Live. That option doesn't exist on the mpd 24 version of that editor, unfortunately.
