Any news on 2.7 or other developments?

Is there any news available regarding an update of the MPC software ? (2.7 or even 3.0?).

Since 2.6 (which added some superb features) there are also some bugs introduced (or not fixed) like:
Some simple stand-alone workflow improvements would also be very welcome.

But...

It's been really quiet lately, also on the forums and press releases (latest one is from early August).

And I know Akai will going to answer "that we can't say anything about current developments", but at least let us know that there is still some development going on?

Should be soon.. Theres pictures of it running on the Force/Live in the upcoming Sweetwater catalogs. If they printed their catalogs up, it should be ready to go any day now..

Hey MJ,

Thanks for posting!

The bugs you referenced have all been officially submitted to the team for further consideration. While I can't speak to specific developments, I can tell you that there is a Beta firmware being tested at the moment. That's about all the information I have currently.

The MPC X/Live are the flagship products of Akai so furthering the ability and features are definitely a priority.

Thanks you for answering. Can we apply for the beta to help testing?
