You have to go to the sample edit page and move the start point to the beginning of the wave sample. Right now your start point is before the sample actually starts.

Which system do I need to be able to trigger loops/textures/pads from the lower 2 or 3 strings of my guitar (kinda like one finger accompaniment on cheap keyboards), while soloing on the higher strings?


You could hook the output of the GR33 to something like an AKAI MPC (http://www.akaipro.com/mpc) assigning different notes to trigger different samples or sequences.

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 am trying to record sounds from my keyboard into my MPC 1000. I have what I think is the proper set-up. MIDI sync...softthru as track...etc. Problem is when I set it up I can play one sound and record...


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.

Os update promblems mpc 2500


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.

I think I am quite confused for what I want. So maybe you can help. I am non-professional player of Yamaha PSR 730 with no music knowledge I Play by ear/hearing only. What I Play: Mostly remix old songs...


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.

First ensure that you are saving into the right folder, on MPC HD and not into a subfolder, and that files are in correct midi format. Also ensure that connections to MPC are OK.

If connections and saved files are ok, then probably you need to reinstall Mpc 500software onto your computer, using disk provided with your Mpc 500.
