"Classic MPC Live ll but New"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I noticed this Mpc Live Retro boots faster then the Mpc Live ll black model and faster then the Mpc X, the pads feel a bit thicker then the previous models, I could be wrong. I use the Mpc X as the master in my studio, but I love the portability of the Mpc Live ll and the built in speakers is a bonus, no need for headphones. It has a fast learning curve compared to other production groove boxes, or sampler workstations. The ability to export as an ableton live project and the sync with live link and the ability to control ableton live feature has endless possibilities. The only con the retro had is the buttons to display the names with a light like the first mpc live ll, the may be a problem for live performers in a dark setting, unless you memorize the buttons
