Sounds to me like the hard drive is bad and it maybe shorting out the cd-rom. It could also be multiple problems that we are talking about here. As far as the cd-rom is concerned, take a damp q-tip and gently wipe off the laser so its clean. Then try multiple cd's to see if it will read. If it doesn't read any cd's still then let me know what happens.

As far as the hard drive is concerned it could be bad. I'll have to find out if there is a way to format it like a computer or if its a matter of just replacing it. In the meantime since you might have multiple problems do the cd-rom first and lets see if we can get that working for now.

Can a dvd player be installed in the mpc 4000


The unit is designed for a CD unit. While a DVD player MIGHT work as a CD read and burner, it would not likely burn DVD's or read them.

Im trying to connect my mpc 2500 with pro tools 8. im using an mbox 2 pro as my interface. I can get pro tools and the mpc to sync...but i cant seem to understand why i cant hear any of my samples from the...


Check if the Mbox2 has an echo setting that echos the audio from its input. If you want the audio to loop through the PC then it will have to echo there instead. Check that in "Sound and devices" of the PC are all set to transfer via the MBox for voice and playback instead of the internal PC audio system.

I can't hear any sounds in my mpc 4000


Have you loaded sounds for the pads from an internal or external storage device? (Such as CD or Internal Hard Drive, if installed) - each time you turn on the power, the programs are cleared so the pads will not make any noise until you load the sounds you want.

Otherwise, it could be related to your speaker setup?

Provide some details on your system setup and whether you are loading programs etc.

5 disc cd changer CC4000 will not read


All players need cleaned from time totime. Do NOT try to clean it with anything other than a CD / DVD lens cleaner. They are available almost everywhere that sellsBlank media. It will clean the lens without scratching or smearing it.

First you must configure your PC to read your mpc 100
flush card. Just insert the software CD driver of your mpc
100 flush card, if you have the CD. Otherwise, you must
have a download from the internet for the software driver.

My mpc hard drive freezes


Sounds like the hard drive either has bad sectors or has corrupted data and it needs to be formatted.
If checking for errors or formatting doesn't help, you may need to replace the drive. Depending on the hard drive that is installed, it may be getting to the end of useable life cycle or has damaged sectors and causes the MPC to lock up. It may also be that the controller board on the drive is failing.

Check the drive either with the built in utility or connect it to a computer and use a non destructive test utility like HDD Regenerator that runs from a bootable CD on a PC.

Cheers and good luck.

When youre in LOAD or DISK mode, does the mpc allow you to scroll through the cd? In what format are the samples. If the sample doesnt load, it wont play, but when selected, it should allow you to preview the sound. The 4000 allows users to import/load SND and WAV files.

The MPC4K should allow you to sample right out the box, but make sure you have the latest OS.

http://www.akaipro.com/support.php

try the 4k FAQ..

http://www.akaipro.com/supportfaqsMPC4000.php

It's also covered in the manual with you can download for free @

http://www.akaipro.com/supportdocuments.php#Z248

I know, who wants to hit a manual when you want to bang out....I'm a classic 2K owner, trust me I know, but sometimes the 5 minutes in checking the methods, saves you downtime, and gets you into funk mode quicker..

The 4k is also the first Mpc to come with onboard sounds, so check a preset, then check your cd, and if youre getting audio from the preset, then you know it's not the sound generator / synthesis chip. If you have a computer, try itunes or sound converter to switch the sound format, or look for a really nice low end application called CDXtract.


If youre banging out on halloween, youre my kinda MPC user.

Keep me posted.
