Working with the MPC Live in its stand-alone mode is largely indiscernible from controller mode operation with a computer using the new OS 2.8. An MPC Project consists of Programs (drum kits, sampled instruments, etc) which are sequenced in Tracks. Tracks are contained in a Sequence and a Project can contain multiple Sequences. The touch interface uses multiple views to access various working modes. Most work is done in the Main viewer where you can flip between Sequences and Tracks, and assign Programs to Tracks. The Main view button toggles to the Track view. From either of these views you can jump to editing Track data in the MIDI grid, step sequencer or audio edit views.
This multi-view system can be bewildering at first, but once we teach you the structure and the places you need to be on both the software on your computer & the MPC LIVE hardware, you'll be able to work quickly and flow thru your production with no problem.
