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.

Can't get my mini mbox usb working for protools 8 after inserting


You were supposed to install the software first (which holds the drivers for the hardware) before you plugged in the MBox. I had the same problem, but I had to use drastic measures and reinstall my OS.

A ''static'' sound coming from ALL outputs of Korg Triton


try cleaning ALL the contacts involved with Caig DeOxit (D5, S5. F6, G5, etc.) products*, they work very well. e.g.; cables, inputs, outputs, and (if you're confident) all the contact points "under the hood". this static you speak of sounds like less than stellar contact points and can addressed at home if you've the motivation to DIY.
