    there was a thread a lil while ago with a bit of discussion on this piece, about it only being 64 note polyphony, and I didnt rally think it would be dto big of a deal because that would allow you to play 4 notes on all channels at the same time with no problems, but then someone (i forget who) mention about some patches being created using more than one waveform, and that that could affect it, and I was just wondering who here thinks this would be a big deal, or not and could someone explain their opinion on it, because I am looking into picking this up, and I dont really have anyways to go too in depth on it before purchasing it where i live, so I am asking you all, any help would be appreciated thanx!

    64 Voice Polyphony does not equal 4 notes per channel. Each sample layer is consider a voice, so any of the pianos, rhodes, guitars, strings, etc that have mutliple layers will take 2-3 voices per note. The acoustic piano is about 3-4 layers, so you talking about a minor 7th chord taking up 12-16 voices. So you gotta think of it differently. The mo6 also only has 3 inserts....so that means it has three true Channels and the others are not properly voiced. Its better for a person that does mainly audio and not as much midi, or when you get to the tracking stage you will have to switch the inserts so that the channels voice properly. I have a demo on that board by the way...shit came out pretty dope for the pattern sequence demo.

    incorrect.

    take it from someone who made hot beats sequencing the rack into fruityloops. in fact i posted a video that most would agree was hot.

    but now that i got my mpc i couldnt be happier. the over swagger of my beats have improved, drums have improved, and the workflow is alot faster. its alot faster to drop a composed sequence in a mpc than fruityloops. (this is not an opinion i have done both so i know wat im talking about.)

    if you have never owned a mpc i dont think you can say what will be better. you cant speak on something you dont own. and "trying your friends or the one on display at guitar center" doesnt mean shit.

    PEople dont understand how important that swagger is, but for someone that is dependent on step sequencing for speed and efficiency, an MPC would be slower it seems, cause it makes them perform something that they are not used to doing. Im no salesman, its whatever gets you from point A to B
