MPC 1000 USB failure...

Post by Questionable Productions » Tue Feb 15, 2005 6:58 pm

I just got my MPC today and I already lost the connection somehow between my mac and the MPC via the usb port. It was working fine before, but now when I connect, the MPC doesn't show up on my mac. Anybody out there know anything about these damned things?

make sure the MPC is in USB mode.

Honestly - the USB on the MPC1K sucks - just spend $20 and get a card reader for your PC. Its way way faster, and you can use the MPC while transfering.

This is a good thing :)

Got it figured out.. silly me tried deleting everything on internal memory...

You're 100% right about the flash card reader. I hadn't even thought of that.

Beautiful...

the day after I bought my MPC I hightailed it to best buy and got the reader. The MPC1K kicks ass - but the USB implementation is weak.

Have you downloaded mpc pad 187 yet? its a great app for making program files - just pop them onto your card and load it up! Saves a lot of navigation and shit.

Man I love my MPC1K - but I wish there was a delay in the effect section and a timestretch feature
