20 Most Recent Akai Professional AKAI MPC 2500 Questions & Answers


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. http://www.akaipro.com/product/mpc2500#downloads


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.

The power switch will need to be replaced. This will need to be done by a tech rather than the end user unless you are experienced in electronic repair. Take it to the shop.

You would come out of the S1100 l/r output jacks into your mixer line input jacks on 2 channels, one panned left, one panned right. Be sure to adjust the input pad on each channel to where you're getting a hot enough signal and that the channels you're inputing to are routed to the mixer's main outputs.

Hello,

That's probably the drive belt inside the player, hope this helps.

If it's on ONE particular record, it may have a deep groove that the needle cannot move past. It could also be that you don't have enough pressure on the needle which you can adjust on the arm with a turn of the counter-weight (should be a knob on the other end from the needle)

normally a buzzing sound means a grounding problem, or a component has failed, unless you have the proper equipment to check these items,, your going to have to take it to a shop that does, sorry I know thats not what you wanted to hear,, but heres a hint, Ive found that a shop that deals in instruments and sound devices charges a lot, I have found a TV repair shop in my town, that can check my band equipment,, and its much cheaper, and I usually get the stuff back much quicker too

Grab the tape out leads or other mains jacks using TRS cables (balanced).

Here is a diagram of how the equipment should be connected:

The mixer is the device that interconnects your keyboard and drum machine. The receiver is just your sound output, and doesn't combine inputs, e.x. drum machine, keyboard, mic, etc.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

Try downloading the manual for the 2KXL. It should have instructions. Here's the link to download:

You'll have to scroll down the page to find your manual, but it might help.

Good luck!

It is not clear whether you are recording audio or MIDI. If you recorded Audio samples, you will get the same sounds back even if you change the voice on the keyboard.

If you record a MIDI sequence, and then play it back you will STILL get the same sounds UNLESS you also record the MIDI voice or patch changes so the voice is changed as it occured when you recorded it. Usually there are options taht you can enable or disable voice changes.
