Audio tracks

Hi, I am considering buying the MPC X as it looks like a game changer. Need to get away from my computer. I would be recording guitars in to the 8 audio tracks as well as making beats. Just got a few questions on the audio tracks.

1. Can I time correct (quantize) the audio tracks?

2. Can I use inserts and sends on the audio tracks?

3. Can I apply automation to audio tracks?

Have downloaded the manual but can seem to find these answers.

  • Hey Paul,

    Thanks for posting!

    The MPC X is definitely a powerful standalone workstation. Audio Tracks cannot be quantized to TC (Time Correct) settings like the MIDI Programs. They can be warped, stretched and chopped in Sample Edit after recording, though.

    All Audio Tracks have 4 insert effect slots available. Additionally, Audio Tracks also have 4 Send/Return chains. Each Return can have up to four insert effects loaded and activated simultaneously.

    Automation parameters can be written to any Audio Track as well, giving a lot more performative freedom to your live recordings. The Automation icon can be set to Off, Read or Write.

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
