Why don't you do it on a computer? ... if you will plug synths, cables, need AC power, etc., then it's not about mobility and portability anymore... no seriously, why rely on an MPC then?reptar wrote:You want to control your synths from the MPC cause the MPC is a sequencer. So you plug all your synths into the midi outs, have one keyboard plugged into a midi in and then record your different parts in one at a time, to have them all played back at the same time.DGX305 wrote:How do you that? and why would you do that?clubbedtodeath wrote:- The MPC1000 is designed to also act as an external sequencer to drive external equipment (the ESX is not). In fact, it excels at this - it has two MIDI ins and two MIDI outs.
As I said, I have little experience with samplers, but my thoughts are if you load a wav file into a sampler then manupulate and trigger it from the MPC, why would you want to control your synth from the MPC!?! And which note on the synth will be played when triggerring the MPC pads?
It's a great feature for those of us with big musical ideas but only not enough hands/friends to realise them.

By the way, you almost conovinced me to get an ESX, although NI Kontakt 2 maybe the way to go!
