Possibility to Insert MiDi CLIPS in the CLIPS PROGRAM MODE or DRUM PROGRAM MODE

Hi Akai, i've this ideia and i think that could be something that make the MPC Live /MPC X a monster.

Possibility to Insert MiDi CLIPS in the CLIPS PROGRAM MODE or DRUM PROGRAM MODE.

For Exemple we build a MiDi progression (with possibility to program to 999 bars) and we can associate each MiDi CLiP to a another program (DRUM, KEYGROUP, CLiP) and when we click in the MiDi CLiP, it open a PIANO ROLL EDiTOR or the DRUM PROGRAM EDiTOR.

We can activate the MiDi CliPS with the 16 pad for the program banks (A to H)

Thanks

  • Hey Groove Gifter,

    Thanks for posting!

    This sounds like an interesting idea but I'm not sure I fully understand what we're trying to achieve here. Are you requesting the ability to use MIDI clips outside of Clip programs? In other words, you would like to be able to assign a Clip program to a Drum program? They are two separate program types but you can assign a clip sample to a Drum program using the Drum program's sample assign function.

    To do this, simply load a Clip sample into your project and use the Drum program's sample assign function on the Main screen to assign it to whichever pad(s) you like.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions!

    Thanks Nick.

    You asked me if: I'm requesting the ability to use MIDI clips outside of Clip programs?

    No, i'm talking about the ability to use MIDI clips inside of Clip programs, just like in session view in Ableton Live.

    To keep it easy, 



    
We build a MIDI CLIP (MIDI Progression), possibility to program up to 999 bars, and we can associate each MIDI CLIP to a PAD for the program banks (A to H) and to activate / play the MIDI CLIPS SAMPLE we use the 16 pads for the program banks (A to H). 



    Ability to load Audio Clip Sample and MIDI Clip sample in the CLIPS PROGRAM MODE just like in Ableton, Bitwig, etc, will be a game changer!
 In Ableton you have the Session View for improvising and playing with musical materials (Audio or MiDI). You load a Audio Clip Sample or MIDI Clip sample, everything stays in sync, so you can mix and match audio at any tempo and never have to think about lining things up.

    Ability to load Audio Clip sample and MIDI Clip sample could be will be a game changer for a Live performance!

  • yep, MIDI clips is a great feature to request.

    @Nick D , any chance you could pass this on? (in addition to us requesting it through the gui)
    cheers!

    • Hi Nick, thank you for your suggestion but me personally, i don’t trust in you (Akai) because you don’t respect your customers, you don’t respect your own words.
      Akai put out a beta hardware (mpc live) with a beta software, sell a beta software (mpc 2.0) and ask for feedback. We all have reported bugs and suggest features since months but you just dont give a f*** about that.
      I have my mpc live and mpc software 2.0 since June and the last update was a 2 months ago! For a beta software is not good!
      You only care about the "stars" that endorses your standalone challenges but i doubt they put some money on mpc live or mpc x. If we, the non stars clients, don't put some faith on you, i don't where you'll go but i don't believe you'll go that far!
      The sad thing is that the mpc live, mpc x and mpc software are great ideas but the way you take care of it is no good, the way you connect with the clients is like nothing!
