Yeah, I would have to agree. The new MPC Live is the one to go for since it can be chargeable and work in stand alone. Also it can be hooked up to computer and be used as controller and audio interface. I’m getting one.
I still say ELEKTRON’s machineDRUM is the way to go. The drum modeling on that thing has no hardware equal. When it comes to sampling, I favor an MPC or MV. I might even go with the BEATTHANG since I believe it is chargeable . . . . .
