I can’t find the way to write automation for the whole sequence or for master channel(output 1/2).. it allows you to automate programs only.. can anyone explain how it works?

Hey Владимир Белосов,

Thanks for posting!

Master tracks, in addition to submixes and returns, cannot have automation data written to them. You are able to write automation data to programs or audio tracks in the MPC Software. If you want to automate many tracks at once, I would recommend bouncing out audio as either stems (using explode tracks in MPC) or an audio mixdown and automate on an audio track(s) in either MPC or another DAW you like to work with.

I hope that helps you!

I agree, the mpc live is outstanding but this feature really lacks.

It is so dumb.. You cannot have different value automation for returns and submix volumes on each sequence???? I'm facing limitations week by week when I wanna integrate MPC to my setup.. Like, ok, it doesn't support multi midi (so lame), let's try it on different submixes.. Nay.. I'm really fed up with this piece of sht... Selling right now, and tellin my students & friends: STAY AWAY FROM AKAI!!!
