The lfo function, as enveloppes and other functions assignable to samples stands imho inside the real guts of the mpc software, what make it such a great gear compared to pioneer, but a limited tool in front of the OT. Theses functions will be for sure part of the standalone functions of these new MPC's.
LFO : one lfo is available per sample, sample layer (4 layers) or sample program (4X16 samples layers)
Lfo is assignable to : pan, filter (more than 10 filters in prog mode, from LP to HP, BP with different curves, to legacy mpc 3000 filter (I like this one !), pitch and amplitude. They are syncable to tempo, on a varieties of time signatures.
An enveloppe is assignable to each filter, another to the amplitude of samples/sample layer/sample programs.
Lfo's are not assignable to other parameters (midi, send/return effects, mixer, etc.)
I suggested akaï (via akai community forum) months ago to integrate lfos directly on q-links in mpc soft 2.0 (had no response)
P-locks : no p-locks... Sad, isn't it ? But in its philosophy, Mpc is not a step sequencer, and all the parameters (effects, mixer, plugin controls, etc.) are automatable in the linear sequencer. In fact, that's the one of the reason which made mo choose bitwig as main daw, with its ability to automate parameters per midi event or per audio event.
On the other hand each sample has 4 send effects slots (internal effects or vst's/au/aax) You can use self-modulated fx, (mostly reaktor in my use) and control modulation parameters of these fx with assignable q-links, in real time, and record these modulations as automations.
Personaly I think mpc software is way more deep than it is often describe (simple sample trigger and linear sequencer), but modulations are more a question of making samples sound great than mangling with audio or midi tracks. In a sense, the mpc live/X could be coupled with an OT in a very complementary way.
