  1. The live was pretty on point since the last update, but the automation makes it an all -in-the-box device now.
    Force needed that export option since it had nothing before.

    1. It doesn’t download porn either. What are you talking about? They aern’t making a laptop or that dusty mega computer/instrument the producer Timberland was pitching years ago that fell face flat. Oh, Open Labd Miko.

        1. The computer software side of it can run as a plug in in your DAW, IIRC, so that might help. Plus, you can render stuff in the DAW easily to your MPC, which is a pretty decent compromise.
