Question about Akai MPC-4000 Plus Production Center (w/80 GB Hard Drive&Onboard Sounds)
Do i need software to hook up my mpc4000 to my mbox also how should i sync my triton keyboard to the mpc4k i'm clueless here
You will want your triton midi-in to go to your mpc midi-outB
then your mpc midi-inA to go to your mbox
your mpc midi-outA to go to your mbox
that should get you good for midi cables....
on the mpc, everytime you want to record a track using instruments from your mpc you will need to set a new track. on the main screen you would go to a new track (where Tr:01-Track-01 is) and change S:DRUM1 to S:MIDI, then to the right of that where it says OFF, turn that to 1A-Device01 ... you will have to make a new track for each instrument you use to help when bouncing tracks to mbox. for instance 1A-Device01 is the 1st track on your triton, 2A-Device02 is your second track and so on. make sure you also make a new track each time for where Tr:01-Track-01 is also for each instrument.
for the mbox i might be a little rusty on this so im going to post a quote from another site....
"in Pro Tools, go to setup - midi - midi studio. this is where you tell pro tools where your midi devices are connected. next, go to setup - midi - midi beat clock. you want to 'enable midi beat clock' and select the devices that are going to be receiving midi beat clock. all devices that you setup under midi studio should be showing. next, set pro tools' tempo for the session if you haven't already. This setup is based on Pro Tools being the MASTER device and the other device(s) SLAVE(S). Make sure that on your hardware/midi interface that the midi output is going to the midi input on the slave devices. On the mpc, press mode, then pad 9 and go to the sync tab. Choose "slave" under "sync in" and the port, 1 or 2, that your mpc will receive midi input. That's it!! When you start Pro Tools' sequencer, the mpc should start too at the same bar/beat location. I've tried slaving Pro Tools to the MPC1000 and Fantom Xa on diff. occasions but I could never get them in sync with Pro Tools. Tried diff. framerates and settings, but still, no luck. So I prefer using Pro Tools as the MASTER sending midi beat clock. Another thing, make sure that whatever you're tracking into Pro Tools doesn't change tempo during the song. If so, you'll have to edit tempo events in the tempo ruler. Hope this helps!!"
let me know if you need any more help.
