How can the MPC 500 play the Samples on the Pads in real time?
I`m from Germany and today I bought a MPC 500. The problem is, that I can only here the Sample Sounds after recording, it`s not in realtime when i hit a pad, how can i change it so that i hit a pad and then I directly hear a sound? Greets

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.
It is not clear whether you are recording audio or MIDI. If you recorded Audio samples, you will get the same sounds back even if you change the voice on the keyboard.
If you record a MIDI sequence, and then play it back you will STILL get the same sounds UNLESS you also record the MIDI voice or patch changes so the voice is changed as it occured when you recorded it. Usually there are options taht you can enable or disable voice changes.
Try this site:http://www.akaipro.com/mpc2500 Try downloading all the the release notes for ver.1.24 if you haven't already. Download the ver.1.24 which seems to be the newest to your computer first and install from there. It might have gotten corrupted the first time you tried it. You will have to email them using the form for the newest release notes and the installation instructions:http://www.akaipro.com/mpc2500 http://www.akaipro.com/content1924.html and http://www.akaipro.com/mpc2500 are the URLs you need. Hope this helps.
Here is an excellent source of info:http://www.mpc-forums.com/viewforum.php?f=15 Consider joining and posting any questions you have. Forum members are happy to help and have usually had the same problems at one time or another.
You sound like you have a good grasp of what you would like to do. There are lots of videos on Youtube of people using some of the gear you mentioned. Also check each manufacturers site for forums on the gear you would like to use. The forums usually consist of members who are all friendly and have good advice and solutions for any problems you may have. Remember that even the most experienced musicians started somewhere and are all still learning and are very willing to share what they know. You might consider using a laptop with an external hard drive. I think the Akai gear is very good and has good support and expandibility. Decide first what main pieces of equipment you would like and contact as many dealers as possible to get the best price. You may be pleasantly surprised and have enough of your budget left over for something you hadn't thought of yet. Good luck and enjoy your playing. Remember to study all your manuals carefully.
You could set the sample to "one shot" in the trim page or in the Program>KG Mix>Zone page.... it is currently set to "as sample"... i like to use the release to let the sample fade out as long as i like... its a lot diffrent from the old poly mono thing but i like it better overall... hope this is helpfull.
