MPD32 or Maschine to control Live?

Post by djMickSwell » Mon May 11, 2015 4:22 pm

I have an Ableton Push. I love it. However, I am looking for something to compliment it and I am looking for a more traditional 16 pad controller. I like to use the Push to control devices, effects, and session view. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on whether or not to pick up a Maschine MK2 for use in midi mode or to just go with the MPD32 which is cheaper in price of course. I could get either for 20 percent off. Thoughts?

Maschine 2 works flawlessly with Live as a controller, and adds great value as a VST...

Completely after the fact, and just an FYI for those who might be interested:

Guitar center just sent me a flyer in the mail advertising the mpd32 for $149.99 at select locations. Translation, call and they will honor it. I had one for quite a long time, using the mpk249 now tho...

.*pricing actually in effect May 21st - May 25th*
Ableton 9, Feeltune Rhizome, Focusrite Pro, Mpk249....
