MPD24 For Clip Firing Like An APC40?

Post by STRATEGY_510 » Sun May 31, 2009 3:42 pm

Is there anyway to setup a 4x4 grid for clip-firing that could move around like the APC so not locked into the same 16 static clips?

Obviously I wouldn't have the super cool red border, but could something similar be done?


Thanks,

no backlights to the pads...hence... no visual feedback...

I read so much Topics now here where Maschine (or in this matter an MPD) is compared with the APC. Hope people will realise soon that buttons aren't the same on total different machines, if you press the button on your espresso machine the result will not be the same as you push one of the buttons on your dishwasher.... :lol:

I've been messin' with that all weekend.... results: get an APC 40 and leave the MPD 24 as a beater.
Since I don't seem to have the cash I'm stuck using the MPD as a clip launcher, and you do get 4 banks of 4x4, it'll do till then, just have to memorize the parts. :cry:

I hope you realize that Maschine is compared to APC40 because it also has a bi-directional clip matrix navigation/launching mode for Live, and not because it has buttons.:lol:
