    Ableton PUSH slept with the MPC Live and made a baby called FORCE at AKAI hospital! :rofl:

    Laptop + Ableton Suite license + Push 2 = same price as this.
    I guess my choice would be clear. (They could have called it PURSE!)

    True and agreed! However, at the end of the day, customers in the music production world (DJs/Producers/Musicians/Sound Engineers/Hobbyists and Pros) are partly to blame cause most of them are out there every day demanding MORE, MORE, MORE. That "never enough" behavior manifests from hardware to software demand (The requests section of the sister site is part proof, lol).

    Come to think about it, that's how the MPC came about. AKAI had to make it for people to even try it and for it to become an iconic piece many versions after. Ableton had to have AKAI made Push for us to know that such hardware was even possible. So, who knows a few months, a few years down the line what traction FORCE will gain or lose in the industry. Time is the only thing that always tells the story down the road.

    Looks like fun, I have an afternoon coming up playing with one, its a lot of cash and I only recently got the Live so I am going to need to love it to buy it.

    Looks cool though.

    I prefer the mpc, it is aimed more for arrangement and sketching.

    the force with all those lights, I cant stand blinking lights in my face, it enough with all screens already

    the force is more inclined towards clip/live/sequencing in a dj like situation. its not for me but im sure of the regular outcome, people with talent will make it great sounding work on it, and most others will make.. what they can with it.
