Akai MPC 4000 Plus

How can you play samples on the Akai MPC 4000 Plus and make them play the full duration when using the pads. The longer you hold down the pads the longer the sample plays but can you get them to play the full duration regardless of how long you hold down the pad?

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.

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.

How can the MPC 500 play the Samples on the Pads in real time?


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.

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.
