Everyone has their opinion on these two, I realize they are totally different and one does not simply replace the other. Just like every instrument and every person, each is unique and has their own strengths and weaknesses. I am well aware that it's not the instrument but the person working it. I just want to hear everyone's INFORMED non-biased opinion on these two, wether you are an MPC head or reccently found love with the Maschine. As for me, I love my MPC2000xl, I know it well and I am super comfortable with it. The one thing pulling me away is technology obviously. MPC are amazing, just slow. I don't mind it much but tracking slows down my process.
I know there are probably tons of these threads out there. I've seen them before and they don't have any meaningful content. Please do not post things like "yo dog, nothing can compete with the Mpc dog, for real doe. It's the truth" or "The mpc is outdated son!"
I realize there are positives and negatives, just point out what they are in your opinion. State what you use and maybe what features keep you curious about the other.
