Arrangements into song

After making a pattern and creating variation sequences..why can't their be a dedicated place to use the pad mutes to bring the scenes in and out during the song mode in real time kinda like ableton live but a better mpc way..make the mpc vst where it can be used in multiple instances in other daw like a true vst because it is by far stellar..i know we can't have everything the way we want it but yall are just about superior to most...i love using track mutes so much that i mix my music from mpc to protools on the fly but if my clients want track outs that mix i did on the fly wont be identical to the track out version..please make it where we can use it by track mute into song from sounding pad to pad and sequence to pad all where the pad performance is captured in song mode..I know it already does it but it should do it better than it does because the mpcx should be able to work scenes like it works sounds...please look at how ableton live works then bury them by mastering that style of arrangements....

  • Yes, this is how Roger Linn should have designed it from the very beginning!

    From memory the Alesis MMT8 sequencer from the late 80s worked like this. If you had just one pattern ( or sequence in an MPC), you could create a whole song from that one pattern. At each step of the song you could use the same pattern, although with different mutes.

    C-Lab Creator and Notator software sequencers (also from the late 80s) worked the same way.
