Good idea to carry it with you. Fluctuating barometric pressure will not affect it.

When i go to format my cf card in the mpc, the mpc does not allow the do it button to be pressed. when i press it nothing happens it does not even blink red.


Check that your CF card is NOT biggerr than the unit allows... read the specs. A lot of equipment is having trouble with the larger memory cards. Unfortunately the smaller ones are almost non-existent.

How do you wipe out everything and put back regular settings on the mpc 2500


from the akai forums:


to set the os back to factory settings press and hold the erase key till the mpc has booted to the main screen.

to erase the harddisk goto either the load or save screen and then choose utility - there you will find the option to format the hdd.

you can also format the drive (or any inserted compact flash-card) from your computer thru the usb connection, but it is recommended to use the internal format because the mpc can be a little picky when you format it from the outside.

at first i would check if there is any folder or the internal memory is set to autoload and just turn that of or point it to another folder of you choice. that way you can keep the factory delivered sounds. maybe you want to use them later, even if it is just to explore the mpc. the factory sounds can be also downloaded later, but be advised that there are different iterations of the stock sounds, depending on whether your mpc shiped with a 32 or 128mb compact flash card.

also the mpc os is not on the harddrive but in the internal memory. to check the version hit mode-> pad10. latest official version is os 1.24. if your main srceen looks different than in the manual check double and triple before you do anything, because the previous owner might have installed the third party jj os which comes in different versions. some of them cost a lot of money! if you find this check the other forum here for the alternative os.

I purchased an akai mpc 2500 used and it came with sounds and sequences all ready occupied, how do I delete all these sounds, or restore its factorys settings?


Try holding erase while you turn it on. You may have to turn off autoload also. You'll have to read the manual first ( pages 110 and 114 especially ) available here:http://www.mpcsounds.com/download_akai_mpc_manual.php It depends I think on whether the previous user saved to memory card or the internal HD.

I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SET UP MY ROLAND JUNO D WITH MY AKAI MPC 1000, PARTICULARLY HOW TO SET UP THE MIDI ON THE ROLAND.


Simple way is MIDI out from Juno to MIDI in on MPC, then (depending on how you want to work), connect MIDI out from MPC to the in on the Juno. If you do this you MUST turn local control off on the Juno or else you'll get double triggers (internal + msg in from MPC). Now to record sequences on MPC , set MIDI to as track in setup window (on the 2500, this is accessed by pressing MODE then pad 9, then press button under the corresponding tab [on LCD]) then set your MIDI channel by port, meaning if your MIDI cable is physically connected to out A, in your LCD in bottom right corner it will show as follows: 1A. This indicates you are transmitting on MIDI channel 1; port A. Remember, MIDI IS NOT AUDIO!!!!! Since the Juno is a synth and not a workstation, all transport controls are handled by the MPC, that's pretty much it... Hope this helps a little, enjoy!

P.S. Go to mpc-forum.com its THE sh**! They also have links for their e-book I have one for the 2500 and its awesome!!!

Akai MPC 1000 is stuck in USB mode


I'm having the same problem. This is my second MPC 1000 and my first one didn't have this problem. I bought one of the first one-thousand MPC 1000's sold in the US. I loved it. I sold it for rent, boo hoo. I'm glad to have another one back in my life. But sad to see it having issues already. I've only had it for a week. I have emailed Akai regarding this issue. I'll post pack here if they give me a good fix.
