I beg to disagree. Turning the attack down blunts the transients, thereby making the track less punchy, whereas turning the attach up lets the transients come through, thereby making the track more punchy.
MPC is the ultimate in modern music production and beat making. Now, MPC standalone devices come packed with even more inspiring plugin instrument sounds, creative editing, arranging and vocal effects processing as well asaward-winning mixing and mastering plugins from world-renowned AIR Music Tech.
Layer, group, split and perform with your favorite sounds using the new Key Split functions in MPC 2.11. You can layer multiple tracks in your MPC to create seamless performances that blur the edges of single andmultitimbral soundscapes. Craft pulsing swells, dense pads, or split the bass and lead to separate areas of your keyboard for easy access during live performances. MPC 2.11 now also allows the configuration of a trackto filter notes outside a given key-range or velocity range.
Record and mix the perfect vocals right in the MPC. Whether on standalone devices or in the MPC desktop software, the AIR Vocal Insert Effects Suite delivers the modern vocal production tools featured across allcontemporary music. From Rap to Pop and R&B and beyond, this vocal plugin collection is an essential toolkit with popular pitch and harmonic effects like those used by top music producers and mix engineers around theworld.
The built-in stereo audio recorder lets you record your KROSS 2 performance, or overdub an external input source such as vocals. There's also a pad audio play function that allows recorded sounds or audio files imported from an external source to be assigned to each of the 16 pads for playback. Unlike the sampling function, this allows extended recording and playback that is limited only by the capacity of the SD card; you can strike a pad to play back the backing of an entire song while you perform on the keyboard, or use the pads to trigger sound effects or background music.
The 16-track MIDI sequencer records your keyboard performance and controller movements as MIDI data. It can also record your pad sampler performance, providing an easy way for you to create sketches of ideas for songs.
In addition to USB MIDI interface functionality, USB audio interface functionality has been newly added. You can connect the KROSS 2 to your Mac or Windows computer and enjoy DAW recording, or easily use the instrument for playing in conjunction with your iPad or iPhone. The KORG Module high-quality sound module app can be used as an external sound module that's played from the KROSS 2, or you can perform with the backing of tracks that you created using the KORG Gadget DAW app, all with the ease of connecting a single cable.A dedicated KROSS 2 Editor and Plug-In Editor are also provided. These let you edit while viewing numerous parameters at a glance on your computer, or allow you to use the KROSS 2 as a software synthesizer from within your DAW.*For connection to PC, use the USB cable (sold separately).*For connection to the iPad/iPhone, use the Apple Lightning - USB camera adapter (sold separately)*The KROSS 2 Editor and Plug-In Editor requires KROSS 2 System Version 1.1.0 or later.
You have most likely felt this exact same connection when you went to see your favorite band live at a concert. The feeling is hard to articulate, but unequivocally present. Yamaha aims to share this primal feeling with as many people as possible.
It does this by choosing the best samples based on the styles you are playing in. Everything you need to put together a great song can be accomplished on this powerful workstation, even vocal recording and effects.
Greatly appreciate your time and effort for the reviews..I am having a difficulty to choose between yamaha p515 and p255 and dgx 660.. i am slightly less than intermediate level i guess.. and i used till now the yamaha psr e 353.. which was nice at the begining but.. u know ?
well.. i just came here to say that i ended up with Kawai es8.. the action is too heavy for me on the p515.. i need way more finger strength and dexterity to play on p515 especially fast pieces.. which is also a bit difficult on the es8 due to the keys bounce when u let them off.. but for me its better than yamaha and roland at this price tag anyway.. so ty anyway for the great content of yours.. i use it alot to make decisions.. take care.. ?
I was now ready to test the MX's integration, but I wasted more time because I didn't realise that I couldn't send audio from the MX to Cubase and monitor it from the Mac's outputs (or, at least, I never found out how to do so). Audio communication with the MX appears to be bi-directional, or not at all. Once I had gotten to grips with this, I recorded some MIDI and audio tracks into Cubase using the MX as the sole source for both and then, using the MX as the system's USB/audio converter, replayed everything. However, this was when I realised what a significant shortcoming it is that the MX's audio inputs (analogue via the 3.5mm aux input or digital replay of 16-bit 44.1kHz WAV files) can't be directed to its USB/computer bus, only to its analogue outputs. This means that you can't use the MX as an audio/USB converter. If you could, it would have been possible to record guide vocals and rough guitar parts as well, without requiring additional hardware and without having to switch between devices within Cubase.
Now go to MAIN, change track 1 to a KEYGROUP type track (just tap the keygroup icon). The newly loaded 5 Semitone 1v program should automatically assign itself to the track:
I reckon the last event worth sampling is the one at bar 31, so in GRID VIEW, change BARS from 52 to 32. As you can see, all the events from bar 33 onwards are now disabled and will not be included in our bounced track.
We previously disabled the effects from our plugin patch as ideally we want to be able to control this kind of thing at the program level. Adding effects to your program is very easy. Make sure your program is assigned to the currently active sequence track and with the channel strip open in MAIN, tap in the INSERTS box to reveal the Inserts window.
Hi, thanks I appreciate the feedback. I am hoping to extend the idea to multiple velocities using multiple tracks and the exploded track export option. If I can work out a good solution I will include it in the next edition of the MPC X/Live Bible.
For testing, we have created an instrument track Logic Pro X, with Pure Synth (M1 native), using the NO MORE DARK preset. The track is playing a chord with 6 notes. We can duplicate that track 116 times, and play all 116 tracks at the same time without dropouts. That's almost 700 notes of polyphony using a 16" MacBook Pro model with 8 performance and 2 efficiency cores.
We've recorded everything from classics (808, 909, etc) to the more rare, hard to find drum machines like the LM1 (we sampled two!), and even stuff that has never been sampled before, like the MPC1, obscure Soviet drum machines and more. We've even recorded our own custom drum machine hits, by tracking acoustic drums with vintage broadcast mics and sampling them through our favorite hardware samplers (similar to how the early digital drum machines were made).
Its feature set includes an ADSR pitch tracker with voiced/unvoiced recognition, pitch tracking indicator, separate processing of voiced vs. unvoiced input, built-in soft knee limiter with color-coded LED indicator, and some of the other things already mentioned.
Thump is a unique audio processor that allows you to synthesize low-frequency audio to add low end to a track or generate another sound entirely. Thump looks at the pitch and dynamics of its audio input and uses this information to control its oscillators. You can add low end to drums, augment a bass or even create synthetic drones.
The effect of Thump is similar to generating a sine wave or other waveform on a gated track that is side-chained to a transient on another track such as a kick. But Thump allows more control, two oscillators that can be changed on the fly and more pitch specific envelope control. If you like kicks that are thick as hell and challenge the range of human hearing, you will like Thump a lot.
From deep dropping 808s, punchy kicks, crisp snares, and claps, to dark melodic loop textures and vocal chops, which have all been created into ready to load MPC drum kits, for instant creative inspiration. Get ready to produce your next hit inside MPC Beats using the Producer Kits expansion pack.
When making the Deluxe lofi pack we focused on creating a deep collection of melodic compositions providing the perfect launching point for creating lofi and boom bap tracks.Filled with the melodic loops of live guitars, dusty pianos, organs, and vintage synths, all processed and re-sampled with cassette and analog hardware emulation, saturating it in those distinct vintage vibes. You can spend all day chopping and rearranging these loops to fit with any boom bap drum loop.
