Yeah, I don’t know if the bugs with that have been fixed up yet- as I’ve left all other social media where I’d hear about it. It WAS a seemingly 50/50 split of people complaining about it and people saying that it’s fine.
TBH, this is my second time owning a P2- as the first time I was too wrapped up in my hardware/Elektron workflow to really use it(also, when I made music with Ableton- I composed solely on the pads of it, which I didn’t gel with)
But it definitely sounds like MPC Live might be best for what you’re looking for- provided it’s been fixed. Maybe follow back up with the process, and then trial the software on your desktop to see if the flow works for you. Meanwhile wait until the Maschine 3 drops before making a purchase. I’ve heard people speculate there’s going to be a standalone mode also you get to cross grade for Komplete which is 50% off for summer of sound at least!
