So it looks like the MPC Renaissance dropped recently, and I'm seeing quite a few producers (B. Cox, Jermaine Dupri, etc) jump on it. Wondering if yall think its worth purchasing or just a $1200 drum midi controller/hardware sampler?
Reason I ask is because I have a midi controller and drum machine and they suite me fine, but also, I think you could get Maschine for way less with pretty much the same features.
But also, some people still prefer having hardware with their synthesizers or modules. I'm starting to find that not as effective anymore because if you haven't noticed, say you have a track done on reason with 30 tracks, and you create a track on the mpc with 30 tracks, you still have to track out the beat on the mpc one by one which can really slow things down. With something like Reason or FL Studio, once you are done with the track, you can bounce straight to .wav or .aiff.
So I just wanted to you guys thoughts?
