Im using MPC Long years ago and I really love my MPC2000XL. But now its 2014 and I had to try out the MPC Ren. First of all I need to say, this piece of gear is looking awsome! Very good quality of used materials with a smart vintage touch.
But... where is my lovely MPC sequencer? Why I cant rename my Tracks on the MPC (without the daw)? why is everything new and the great mpc workflow has changed? I better stop here or maybe I will start a shitstorm...
I really thought the daw Integration within pc usage is an improvement of the old mpc workflow. Its not that bad but its something new and it will need some time for oldschool mpc users like me :)
Install the MPC Expansion Content
Why I Need to install the Expansion content on my C drive? You dont need! Here is the hack!
Installing the MPC Expansion „The Bank“
If you were running the latest MPC Software 1.6 x64 Bit first of all you need to install the bank expansion from the DVD. It won’t work yet because you need to install the x64 Bit update first.
There is no location for the content you can choose. All will be installed on your c:\ Partition.
The content is stored in C:\ProgramData\Akai\MPC\ContentNow we manually copy the content to another location.
Edit the file TheBank.txt in C:\ProgramData\Akai\MPC\TheBank
You delete the path C:/ProgramData/Akai/MPC/Content/TheBank/Samples
And type in your new one:
H:/Audio Programm Data/Akai/MPC/Content/TheBank/Samples
Important use the Slash “/” not a backslash “\” and at the end of the path “/Samples”
Otherwise it won’t work!
