Swing and groove

Hadn’t played with my octatrack mk1 for a while. I usually sample vinyl, play my beats and adjust the timing using touchscreen on mpc live. I know the mpc has a huge reputation when it comes to swing. Having come back to the octatrack l am finding it more satisfying adjusting the micro timing to get the exact feel and groove that’s playing in my head. I can get close on the mpc live but it’s never quite on the sweet spot. Any of you guys use both mpc live and octatrack, and have any opinions? External sequencing also appears to be spot on with octatrack. I’m thinking of making the octatrack the brain of my set up mainly because of the groove l can get.
