I will 2nd this here as a possible solution. I came across an OLD Jet-Tone mpc that is the smallest thing I have ever seen. It's 19/32 in. diameter! I started messing around with it and made a "smart" comment in a thread it was only good for high notes! SB retorted that anyone that couldn't play it in the lower register just wasn't good enough, or something to that effect! So I felt challenged so to speak and started working it in to just see what I could do with it. All I can say is WOW!! I Love This Mpc.! A lot of the charts I play are commercial in style with many lines starting at G on the staff and written up to high G, or A. I used it last night on a line that gets repeated 3,4,5, or more times depending on the singer. Usually can play it twice and then drop it an octave after that, not last night! After using it a few times I got used to what I had to do to make it work. Played the entire song and did not run outta juice! Hit the high D bird's eye at the end (after playing all those lines) with a punch and it was tight! It doesn't give me any notes I don't have but the one's I do I can play anytime I want! Thank you SB for the "beatdown" or I would have never given that mpc. a shot!
