This image is said to come from an FCC paperwork filing and gives some indication of an over-all layout.
I’ll be looking for this at SuperBooth in early May.
so it’s finally come to fruition, swear this one’s been floating around for a while. Would love to see the size of the full unit. Wont be buying but will be cool to see what comes of it. Monster size, hopefully this draws 3.0 closer
Call me crazy but I would love a 25 keys MPC Live kind of device!
I always wanted a modern keyboard sampler, when did the last real sampler see the light of day??
Roland S-50? DSS-1? Can’t think of anything else right now…
Unfortunately I don’t really get along with the MPC workflow although it offers so much incl. Autosample.
Will it have speakers??
And still using the same old architecture?
I will follow the news…
Probably the ASR 10 would have been the last full size keyboard sampler that wasn’t also a rompler workstation. That’s the most recent one that I can think of. I know E-Mu had a keyboard version of their EIV samplers from about the same time period.
technically, Korg’s Microsampler I guess. but yeah, long overdue (imo) for the format to be rebooted for modern specs
We can only hope
Anyone heard anything more about this? I really want an mpc but don’t have the room for one on my desk… but if I could replace my keyboard and get an mpc wow that would be great!
If they manage to bring the disk streaming this thing will be perfect !
Looks like it’s missing speakers and built in battery so I can take it on the train with me.
Rumor is $2500 USD. I say this gets announced pretty soon
Shit man…think I’ll be looking at the ASR-10
That’s a fortune unless it contains updated internals. I don’t see the logic in that price.
Double the MPC Live Price, nearly. It doesn’t have the X’s controls. I just don’t see the value unless it’s twice as powerful with at least 8 gigs of ram.
The $1899 rumor made a lot more sense.
Looks like it could be great for certain users, though yeah, that’s pricey. I’m happy enough with a Live 2 with a KeyStep 37 plugged in. This release is a good sign for existing machines and MPC OS to continue to be supported.
Maybe they’ll be and update to the internal synths or a new one as good as hype to make it more of a stand-alone synthesizer groovebox, but definitely should of had the forces 8 macros or more
