How to fix usb port on keyboard controller


I am assuming that you broke the connector off the pcb board? you need a soldering iron about 30W and solder and flux, to remove and short circuit after you solder them back on, using a magnifying glass to make sure none of the 5 termnials are shorted

How do you wipe out everything and put back regular settings on the mpc 2500


from the akai forums:


to set the os back to factory settings press and hold the erase key till the mpc has booted to the main screen.

to erase the harddisk goto either the load or save screen and then choose utility - there you will find the option to format the hdd.

you can also format the drive (or any inserted compact flash-card) from your computer thru the usb connection, but it is recommended to use the internal format because the mpc can be a little picky when you format it from the outside.

at first i would check if there is any folder or the internal memory is set to autoload and just turn that of or point it to another folder of you choice. that way you can keep the factory delivered sounds. maybe you want to use them later, even if it is just to explore the mpc. the factory sounds can be also downloaded later, but be advised that there are different iterations of the stock sounds, depending on whether your mpc shiped with a 32 or 128mb compact flash card.

also the mpc os is not on the harddrive but in the internal memory. to check the version hit mode-> pad10. latest official version is os 1.24. if your main srceen looks different than in the manual check double and triple before you do anything, because the previous owner might have installed the third party jj os which comes in different versions. some of them cost a lot of money! if you find this check the other forum here for the alternative os.

JUST WANT TO INSTALL FX BOARD IN TO 2000XL


Try downloading the manual for the 2KXL. It should have instructions. Here's the link to download:
http://www.mpcsounds.com/download_akai_mpc_manual.php

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

Good luck!

I purchased an akai mpc 2500 used and it came with sounds and sequences all ready occupied, how do I delete all these sounds, or restore its factorys settings?


Try holding erase while you turn it on. You may have to turn off autoload also. You'll have to read the manual first ( pages 110 and 114 especially ) available here:http://www.mpcsounds.com/download_akai_mpc_manual.php It depends I think on whether the previous user saved to memory card or the internal HD.

Akai MPC 1000 is stuck in USB mode


I'm having the same problem. This is my second MPC 1000 and my first one didn't have this problem. I bought one of the first one-thousand MPC 1000's sold in the US. I loved it. I sold it for rent, boo hoo. I'm glad to have another one back in my life. But sad to see it having issues already. I've only had it for a week. I have emailed Akai regarding this issue. I'll post pack here if they give me a good fix.

The jack with the guitar symbol is a high impedance input for a guitar so you will get a proper level and sound when plugging your guitar straight in. All of your question did not appear in the post so try rewording it so we know what you are trying to do. Thanks.

Is it a bad idea to fly with my akai mpc 2000?


Good idea to carry it with you. Fluctuating barometric pressure will not affect it.
