[MPCX] Add Akai's Own Workflow Diagram as a Tool Screen

Nick D. posted a link to this screen for someone that was having a hard time arranging things on the Live, http://www.akaipro.com/support/kb/art.... Being sort of a noob (to the MPC) myself, I clicked and there is this awesome diagram, i.e. an overview of a imagined project. Cool!

So my obvious reaction is, if it's that good for teaching and it just make sense, why don't we have a screen on the MPCX/Live that looks like it? I mean, that would help not only noobs, but seasoned MPC pirates as well.

On that screen (imagine that diagram, zoomable and scrollable, to see it), there could be [+] buttons (under the tracks, under the programs, and on the right of the sequences). When you tap them, it takes us to the respective sub-screen for setting up the newly created object. Just like we do now, but with many not understanding the workflow.

Make total sense to me. Do it! (Awesome song by the swiss band Yello.)

  • Hey Robert,

    Thanks for posting!

    I never thought a little diagram I made would be so beneficial but I'm happy to hear it's helped you! I think this could certainly be a useful addition to the software to see the workflow in a different way. Be sure to submit this as a feature request with the MPC 2 Software's built-in feedback module. The feedback module is represented by a smiley icon at the lower right side of the software next to the browser icons. This information goes directly to the Akai team for consideration!

    If you need an alternative method of submitting feedback, you may use the following links:

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I think it's the MPCX that's showing in a different way, or there's no need to explain.
