Akai Force feature requests

Akai Force feature requests:
(In no particular order)

1. Group Tracks/Channels
You can only send signals to "Track" or "Output", if you had Group Tracks, you could send several signals from different clips/intruments/kits to a specific FX

2. Automatic note/audio preview on events.
You should have the option off having it on or off.

3. Fixed length and Fixed velocity function on recorded notes.
Having to go through each note seperately to fix a length or level is time-consuming and iritating.

4. Knobs display the information from the parameter used e.g. X-Axis/Y-Axis; Beat Divison, Cutoff, Resonance, Drive, Frequency.

  • Hey Tom,

    Thanks for posting!

    Regarding fixed note length, you can try editing the Time Correct settings as this will affect the length of the notes that are drawn into the sequencer with the pencil tool and keep them uniform in length. If you are using Step Sequencer Mode, you can use the pads in the lower right quadrant of the Force to select preset velocity values in addition to entering notes based on the input velocity (input velocity levels can be selected with the pad right above the column 5 button).

    That said I think there are some great ideas here so I will submit this information to our development team for consideration!

    Thank you for your feedback!

  • Regarding #4 the Knobs display, have you tried setting your knob display to "screen"? Hold down the Knobs button and select Screen, now the knob parameters will change depending on what page you are on, and when you are on an FX insert page (on a filter for example) the parameters should all show up on your knobs, such as cutoff, resonance, etc.

  • i like the group idea! you know...tracks within tracks. But maybe the Force would get too complicated then...im already strugling to learn it, as a total mpc beginner hehe

    For update.. having the possibility ,for live sequencing, to change the lenght of notes to be input ... so quarter notes is not the only option.... specially for chords .. painless that only quarter notes is the only option then ....

    The Force would be a dream for me if it had a basic midi implementation. Something that could respond to a midi clock start message, so that my midi syncable looper could send a start message and clock, enabling tight sync between the looper and the force. As part of a live looping rig, this would be amazing. The Novation Circuit can do this, and at a fraction of the cost.

    Being able to control the Force's looper via midi CC, would be amazing as well, if the looper could then set the force's tempo.

    As it is for me right now, sending MMC messages does not work. MMC Play needs to be sent twice, and sending an MMC Stop message simply restarts the sequence. I just don't get ignoring midi, my whole setup is midi based, bith modern and vintage equipment. MMC is useless for me, at least on the Force it would appear..
