You'e right, its a sequencer/multitrack recorder/mixer/everything you fucking need so put down the overhyped piece of shit ghettogear and pick up something a bit more PROFESSIONAL! If you like using diskette's of course. You said find prices, I found prices for brand new shit on the same site. Don't give me this backtracking bullshit. I got proof. You got.. more lies? BWAHAHAHA MPC = Piece of shit ghettogear that you need floppy disks to use properly. ProTools = Everything MPC will never, never, never, never, never, never be. GENIUS! I just broke down the math for you, showed you the numbers, and calculated it live in front of your eyes. YOU CAN STOP LYING TO SAVE FACE NOW! Unsigned, a computer is assumed. Who on this board is outputting their MPC to a tape machine? How about a live 1x speed burner? No. The people on this board are outputing it to computer THEY ALREADY OWN. (Unless Milo want's to be traditional since it isn't broken and is outputting it to Edison's wax cylinders) And for the most part, more RAM required to decently run ProTools LE is well under $100 bucks. A FireWire card is less then $50. A good harddrive has already been mentioned on this board. Milo.. you facts are skewed.. your opinions are biased... you failed to purchase decent gear and now you are spreading the plauge of your stupidity.. it's time to re-evaluate your situation.
