  1. I have an OP-1 and I use Reason 11 suite for my DAW, I make metal, ambient, punk, synth drone, thrash and grind…. Would the MPC One be a useful tool for me to make music on? I’d like to sequence the OP through the MPC One. Also I’d like to use the MPC and touch screen as a mock drum kit with live FX like a Kaoss Pad, would this all work like I think it would? I don’t need it but sometimes I feel like the OP-1 programming can be tedious. Us I want to record live drum and guitars into it. I might still use the Tape on the OP1 as well.

    Tldr: will the OP-1 play nice with a MPC One for a live instrumentalists?

    1. I’m not taking responsibility for that question 😉 I really don’t even see why you’d want to run an OP-1 through MPC – you need to do your research – no quick answers…

  2. Hello thank you for your video. I would like tu buy an MPC One but I use FL Studio and I’d like to use both at the same time. Do you know if I can do that ? I know that we can do that with MPC Live but I didn’t find information about MPC One.

    Thank you for answering

    Best wishes
