yeah, but these dudes aren’t “really” playing anything.
anyone can “trigger” samples and “phrases.”

peep MdCl for the real deal.

has anyone else noticed compulsive mpc volume changing? Dj Day is doing it here, and although you could say its being used to change volume during different parts of the song, that’s probably not the case. My roommate caught me doing this once and pointed it out – I realized he was right – I was constantly fucking with the volume knob while I made and played back sequences. I almost feel like it comes from some sort of innate connection that the mpc artist feels to an actual DJ, thus feeling like you should be constantly manipulating the knobs. I watch people do this all the time now.

I know this might sound elementary, but since you’re in South Africa, is it possible that the voltage switch in the back of your unit needs to be corrected for your voltage?
