I think as updates come for both the Force and current MPC line we will start to see them implement VA drum synthesis (amongst other forms of synthesis). on top of that I think we will start to see things like probability and more interesting modulation techniques arrise in that platform... So I will keep my eye tight on that. The MPC Live/X seem to need careful consideration to their internal headroom imho. but are certainly great stand alone machines.

With just a few unique features, the Tempest became the only such instrument which really FEELS to me like an instrument:
- Beat-wide parameter tweaking
- Ease of assignment of anything to velocity envelopes amount

I follow the market in search of a Tempest 2 which will solve its CONS:
- lack of onboard FX
- samples management software
- better integration with the DAW/less

Sound design mode where iterations of a patch can be freely saved as “states” to be A/B across the 16 pads (Think photoshop)
Endless LED encoders so values don’t jump  when switching between pads

Lithium rechargeable batteries that last 16 hours on full performance.

I am sure there is more that can be put on the list.

I love the original Tempest but if the ultimate workstation encompassing the above came out I would buy it in a heart beat (pipe dream as it is)....considering the hell we put Dave and Roger through.....LOL Good luck on the T2.

The worst thing about your post is other than the brew a cup of whatever and clean your home jokes etc., you're actually serious. It's a good thing you don't work for product development for Sequential because they'd be bankrupt within a year after making your dream (delusion) machine, since only professionals, and rich kids would be abe to afford it.

It's a good thing you don't work for product development for Sequential because they'd be bankrupt within a year after making your dream (delusion) machine, since only professionals, and rich kids would be able to afford it.

And the worst thing about your post — other than the fact that you're picking on a post from two-and-a-half years ago, that was clearly meant as a joke, by one of the more talented, funny, and genial people ever to grace this forum — is that nearly everything on Lucid's list (aside from the hilarious novelty items of course) is in fact present on the MPC Live, and it is yet more affordable than the Tempest.  Ahem! 

Cheers!
