haha don`t worry, the ppl there are pretty friendly... and there`s other *ish* you can talk about the new mpc`s because they HAVE been updated, not only "oh, it looks like the old one", "oh, it feels like the old one", "oh, it`s the old one actually but it`s black and green now" and "it`s too pricy"

now, ontopic, is there literally no change but the faceplate? they could at least use green lights for the display instead of the shitty blue that does not match the new aira look

You get a loopmasters logo, surely that's worth the upgrade?

Yeah man, I don't really get Roland anymore. They had a somewhat good MC-808 and better but older MC-909 and simply let those die a silent death. Same goes for the MV-8000 and MV-8800 which still are amazing samplers in their own right, but have simply gotten too slow for today's music production. One of the few samplers Roland still seemingly cared about has gotten nothing but a face lift twice now. It's quite pathetic really.

I want a modernised (stand-alone) SP-606 that compete with the Maschine MK2/MK3s and a new Roland MV that competes with the MPC X / MPC Live. The SP-404 can still be the great FX box / portable sampler it always was, but it definitely needs more of an update than just the faceplate colour or a new sound library. Speaking of which, these Loopmasters people have managed to get their packs onto basically all brands of devices, so chances are I already got most of their stuff.

/end of rant lol
