"With JJ OS2 installed this thing kicks arse. I started off on hardware sequencers (MC 303) and I just love the workflow on the MPC series.
"The lack of visual stimulation also allows me to get deep into the music and do it fast. I can write a full track in between 15 minutes and three hours. Iʼll never be able to do that with Ableton as there are so many distractions and fiddling to be done within the computer.
"Often I turn everything off without saving it after Iʼve recorded my track. This ʻno come backʼ approach keeps me sharp and stops me endlessly tweaking a song to death. It also helps keeps the artistic vision intact for what ever piece Iʼm working on, as the music is always finished one sitting."
