Re: Octave Cat help needed...

not a solution here...
but i have a-rev cat and also have this problem. the keys only trigger one pitch, and vco2 while still functional, fluctuates its tuning, like a ummm, dying cat....
still a great noise box. apply some spring reverb and you can get some squelchy effects like that of a vcs3.

Re: MPC2000XL as Ableton controller?

i used to use this set up about 2.5 years ago. always wishing something like the apc40 existed. i had eight channels/tracks going out of live into a mixer, and used my mpc for triggering clips and scenes. worked out great. you wont be able to control the software parameters like the apc will be able...

yeah, i like the first pic also. not a big fan of the radias like hinge, but i think it could use a built in angle. something locked into place and not moved up and down by the user. maybe at like the oberheim 2, 4 voice angle. and i also think there would be far greater advantges to still have the ...

here is a question that has been on my mind... since they charge for their editor librarian, will the OS update be a free update, or will it come at a price? will we need the editor librarian in order to update? it should be free!!! but will it?

yeah, usb connectivity to todays synths seems like a no brainer. best of both worlds i think. analog sound, digital control. you mention the esx sampler, i was just thinking today about the akai line, the newer mpcs, i assume you can drop samples into them. dont forget about the s5000/6000 had usb b...
