Dear fixya thank you for replaying to my e-mail about my mpc 4000 problem, and yes after pulling my hair out and further investigation i did fix the problem. i had no audio comming from one of the main outputs and all i did was change that one faulty audio cable and everything was all good. I took the no good cable, tied it in to a knot and dumped it right into the trash can. Now im back to master beatz...

Hi, I have an mpc 4000 and somehow I can't get it to play my samples in the main sequence mode. I recorded some drumsamples and I can hear them in the program. I can record a beat but it will only sound...


Hi - I thought this solution I read earlier may help you out - it was originally posted for another problem:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t519740-akai_mpc_4000_plus

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.

Do i need studio monitors so i can hear the sounds coming out of my mpc 4k?


you need some type of speakers either monitors that connect 1/4 inch cables left and right or you can use some speakers that hook up in the headphone jack but you are going to need an adapter to make the 1/8 inch to a 1/4

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.

Mpc 4000 lcd


Hey, it sounds like the LCD is not receiving any signal from the video output. I would take it somewhere to be opened up for a closer inspection. Again the cause could be something more serious on the internal circuitry. No way of telling till the schemata is tested.

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.
