JJOS’es arent made by Akai. They are ”mods” to the stock OS. I doubt people were using as much JJOS back in the day as they are now that the 1k/2k5 line has been long since discontinued.
And like I said, I only stated things I thought aloud in a broad sense, it was by no means factual or towards a specific individual.
I have read far too many threads about ”legendary MPC SWING! Tight timing!” without the tiniest bit of scientific facts behind it that I am getting jaded, no doubt. Everyone’s always huffin an puffin about it, but aside from some URL’s to innerclock systems website (which only reveal jitter figures), nothing factual ever been said about it other than what Roger Linn himself has said about it.
So obviously I am inclined to lean on the side of Mr Linn, not least because my personal experiences also tell me the same. To my ears, a shuffle is a shuffle, whether its called swing or not, produces the same results. Except for modern equipment, which also does ”negative swing/shuffle” which IMO is even doper than reg shuffle.
