Mpc200oxl forces me to save my beats as midi

I recently figured out how to hook up my MPC2000xl to my Korg M1 keyboard but couldn't figure out how to record from the M1 into my mpc2000xl.
After giving up on the idea and dismantling the midi connections I continued creating my song on the mpc. But each time it would try to save it would always prompt me to save the song as a.mid file. This is driving me crazy as can't figure out how to get it out of that mode and make it save the normal way...Please help

Hi,

Not sure if this basic instruction is what you are looking for or not, as I'm not sure how long you've been using the Akai Sampler. So forgive me if this is too basic and you're having a real problem other than one that assumes you are fairly new to the unit. Here goes:

To change the file format (or type of save) the MPC will perform a save in, you need to access the Save Screen:

Hold SHIFT and press LOAD (3 on the numeric keypad) to enter the Disk mode. Press SAVE [F2] to display the save screen. You then need to select the Type: - if it is only saving midi then the type will be "Save a Sequence" on this screen. You can change it to "Save All Sequences & Songs" if that is what you are referring to as 'the normal way'.

Hope this helps.

bd.

MIDI isn't audio, think of it as a sheet of music. It still needs to be played to be heard. Not sure of your recording setup but the midi performance that you have needs to trigger a keyboard or drum machine or VST instrument of some sort.

I cannot say I'm certain of the keyboard model in question. However, one does not usually plug a microphone into a keyboard. Does it have built-in speakers?
BUT, assuming it is made to accept a microphone, there should be a "mic in" or "microphone input" jack on the keyboard. DO NOT plug into the MIDI jacks (if you find the right adapters). MIDI is a control protocol so keyboards and sound modules can "talk" to each other and one keyboard player can control multiple sounds from one keyboard.

Need help DP-01 basic hook up to synthesizer


Midi on the DP-01 is only for time synching with another device, synth, etc. To hear your synth through the DP-01 run a 1/4" patch cord from the audio outs (R and L) on your synth into the A and B inputs of your DP-01. Then assign the inputs to tracks and arm them for recording. You should then be able to hear your synth playing out of whatever you are using to monitor you DP-01 (headphones, stereo or powered monitors). To record the synth output simply press play and record together on the tascam.

It appears to be a problem with USB and the clock sample rate of the mic.  You need to go into your Applications/Utilities folder to find your Audio MIDI Setup.  In there you can choose the device for input and manually set the sample rate (usually 44.1K or 48K).  Keep that window open while you record, and you'll find that the mic will reset itself to another sample rate on its own... don't know why, and Samson's support is pretty non-existent, so I can't get any answers from them.  If you simply reset the sample rate in the Mac's Audio MIDI Setup utility the problem will clear itself up.  But, with Garage Band, you'll then get a very bad latency issue that will force you to restart Garage Band to reestablish a near-zero latency.  It's annoying, but it does work.  (In Soundtrack Pro I can reset it without having to restart the application.)

Hooking up my mpc2000xl to dp01


The DP-01 does not have a MIDI-In function. Instead, it allows you to plug the MIDI device into the signal chain. Plug the MIDI device into the DP-01 by using the MPC2000xl analog 1/4" jacks on the back, marked "Stereo Right" and "Stereo Left" (right next to the headphone jack at the rear top left). Run those 1/4" cables to the front of your DP-01, into the 1/4" jacks provided.

Hold the Assign button on the DP-01 for the LEFT channel and touch the REC key for the channel you want to assign it to - the REC light will flash red to let you know the routing was successful. Do the same for the RIGHT channel.

You should also plug the MIDI-Out cable from the DP-01 into the mpc2000xl so that the clocks of the devices can be synchronized.

PLAYBACK PROBLEM


need to know if you use headphones while recording, if not it could be feedback from your monitors or even the phones.reasons phones too loud or mic gain too sensitive.
