So I recently got my hands on an Akai MPD32. I've got it working alright with FL Studio and Reason, (the main programs I work with.) Using it to play beats and whatnot, just dinking around basically. But after that, I have no idea what to do with the thing. I want to use it eventually to perform live, looping etc, but I have no idea where to start.

Anybody here use any of the MPD series? What program(s) do you use it with? What do you use it for?

So basically, my question is...where should I start? Do you guys have any resources for me to look into? Even if it's just about learning about midi controllers in general...

Thanks for any info you can give me. (and please excuse my noobishness Embarassed )

Build 16 channels of analog drum modules (four quadbass++?), stick a MIDI-to-CV converter in front of it (or piezos under each pad) and learn to finger drum!

That's my plan anyway Smile
