  • drum machine vs mpc for live use

    hey just wondering which would be more ideal for my situation. i'm looking to get something that can emulate drums while i play live. i need something that can do more then repeat just a couple patterns, i want to be able to fully program drums for an entire song and be able to play it live while i play guitar etc. are there any drum machines that do this or do i have to go the mpc route?

        I Would Personally get an MPC, the reason being that I've seen Djs use it before.

        It's hard to beat a great live drummer... especially when they can cover your ass when you make a mistake.  Having said that, if you are pretty good and can play along with a robot, you might want to also consider a groovebox like the MC-505 or an MC-909.

      I like the idea of using the mpc live...how easy are they to program on the fly.
