Clearly MPC Live for me, but I hope to not disappointed by it in time. What i do know is i will buy only hybrid gear from now on. Only device who speed the workflow, who speed routing, recording, control... in general with or without the computer. So, the TORAIZ will gone because it's not giving me much... P-locks is very limited if you exclude FX destination, i can't mixed with it without sacrificing the FX1, also i always put some very long evolving layers with random beat-repeat prepared on Ableton Live and i can't drop it on the TORAIZ... and probably never be able to do it. But I'm sad to return it because i really love the sound and i'm sure in LIVE it allow to be reward instantly on that sound quality. But as my Live is not written i will focus on that before !!! it will give time to pioneer to make it maybe more the way i want it and then maybe i will reconsider it.
i sold a lot lately for personal reasons, included my HEAT and not happy but I will take a second time when i will approaching my Live ready status (because I already know it will get through the HEAT before to be heard). For now I focus on composition.
[ Analog Rytm / Analog Keys (mono) ] + MicroMonsta (poly) + MPC Live (Program + Long Layers) > Behringer X16 > Focal CMS50 + SubCMS (Headphones AKG K702 + Ultrasone Pro900)
iMac at some point to prepare and Finnish few EP before to propose the Live.
Thats the PLAN, if Akai would like to release the damn thing but as i reduce the setup i can't start in Ableton for now so... it's ok)
Maybe i will regret the Octatrack for working on Long Layers so it's still on my Gear List.
