Hi, have you tried a diferent power point {wall outlet], If all else fails you will need to test the internal power pack, If you can use a multimeter then the red wires are 6v, yellow wires 12v, black = negative, blue 5v grey is neutral and purple is 2v. If you cant do this then its off to your nearest technician. Goodluck, regards mistyman

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.

try the 4k FAQ..

http://www.akaipro.com/supportfaqsMPC4000.php

It's also covered in the manual with you can download for free @

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.

SOURCE: 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.

I was using a 500mb conner hard disk but now 4.5gb seagate hard disk but can't format it


you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive

Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup


Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart


note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating systemor if you are trying to format a usb drive

insert your pen drive

click start click on my computer you should see your pen drive

right click then select format

another way is to control panel administrive tools,computer management disk management right click on your drive select format

Hi,
Trying attaching to a different USB port or different computer. If still the problem is not solved try formatting the USB PEN drive using HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool. If still not ok, then may be its a hardware issue with the PEN drive.
If its under warranty, try for a replacement.

Usb not recognized


if you use it on win 95 or win 98 or vista you need specfic drivers for you usb disk
if you get this on win xp please change the usp ports and use another port to insert the disk one of the ports has to recognise.
if the problem persists the usb port controllor on motherboards needs to be checked for faults or uninstalled drivers ,
if nothing works try a pci to usb internal card and dont forget to loaad drivers . this card has 3 to 6 ports for usb
