MPC Live and MPC 2.0

After weeks using the MPC live (stand alone, controller mode), i use more and more features and more and more tracks (more and more air vst, waves effects, more and more audio tracks, etc.), i realize it is really full of bugs and issues...

-recording a second audio track, you have to reload project for listening to this track.
-bad performances using MPC live has sound card and controller mode (with a i7 7700hq and 16Go of ram and ssd), if i switch to my steinberg UR22 MK2 sound card, it's really better
-often crashes from the MPC 2.0 software and poor performances
-sometimes, unable to ear the sounds, when auto features is activated, when browsing sounds
-hard to get waves plugins to work
-crash when leaving software
-MPC Live screen flashing, have to reboot it often
-MPC Live freeze, have to reboot it

MPC live can be used in stand alone mode but NOT for big project, just to start project and continue to work as controller mode. at the bigining i wanted use it only in standalone but i quickly forgot this solution to use it as controller mode.

I can understand this is a beta but i think developpers should be inspired by video games developpers:
In beta, they provide regular updates to fix issues, not each 2 or 3 (or more ?) months and leave users with a buggy expensive environnement.

It could be a great controller but after weeks of use, i'm starting to get tired to reboot, reload, restart, retry, etc... and frustration replace pleasure

    Hi, you described almost everything we (mpc touch users) have been complaining about since the beta 2.0 was released. And if you do a search poor Nick (from akai) tries to help us as best as he can, but what we really miss is some update from AKAi developers on how things are going with fixing these issues.
    Since MPC live/X users know seems to catch up i HOPE akai gives us some info on future updates etc. There has been NOTHING from Akai except as i said for Nick who does a great job.
    I have given up and are looking for other manufactures even though the touch is brilliant and the workflow of the SF is very good. But as you we get tired of all the crashes, lost projects, reboots etc...

  • I'm agree with you, there isn't any communication from developer's team.
    We don't know what do they plan for future update, they don't share with the community
