I am having my akai mpc2500 fixed and fully upgraded, the engineer has found a problem with the IDE line, apparently the hard drive and cd drive will not work with the machine he has tried a couple of

Hello there,
You dont say what was wrong when you said it was being 'fixed' and a Hard Drive and/ or CD added.
Has it been updated to V1.24 software which fixes a bug in hard drives formatting ? As per the release notes.

I would very much doubt there is problem with the IDE interface UNLESS this was the original reason you were having it fixed.

I would take it to the AUTHORISED AKAI PRO Dealer to have it inspected.and a PROPER understandable report given to you if the Machine still won't accept a Hard Drive or a CD mechanism.
Go to bottom of page here For AKAI PRO dealer near you. It cannot hurt to get a second opinion.

Mpc2500 mode button snapped off. i opened the mpc and removed the mode button. How can I get a new button?

You might try this site:

If the shaft/actuator snapped off a part on the board, then you will have to do unsoldering and soldering. Removing solder from the boards without the proper tools may damage the circuit board.

Os update promblems mpc 2500

Try this site: 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: and are the URLs you need. Hope this helps.

I hit a pad and it plays a sound thats not assigned to the pad

The link to the manuals is here: According to the quick start manual you can assign different sounds to different pads and change them in the Program mode. See p.6 in the quick start manual and p.78 in the operators manual. There is an update listed on the page I gave you. I hope this helps.

How do you earse internal memerory This is a free download. Try pages 14 and 15 also 23 also44 also page 66 also 83 also 90(purge samples) 103 (memory cards) 11 formatting page 108 deleting data in memory before loading, I'd suggest page 112 (save the contents by backing up to computer) then wiping the memory card. I don't have one of these units and I see the hard drive is an option which I don't know if you have. Read the manual from beginning top end and always save your work before deleting anything. Hope this helps.
