Ability to change names of samples (MPC LIVE 2.3)

I just think Akai should make an improvement on the sample assignment. When I try to load a sample from different folders but with the same name, it always asks me to replace the sample or cancel the option to load. I have lots of drums in different folders on my HD but if I want for example to assign one sample to Pad 3 that's called “Snare 1” and if I go through some other folder to assign to Pad 7 and it also says “Snare 1” but with a different sample I just have those to options (Cancel or Replace) and every time I try to load it I have to lose the other sample on Pad 3 because it replaces it. (Even though it’s on a different Pad)

  • Hey Santus,

    Thanks for posting!

    Yes, currently samples in the sample pool must be uniquely named but I think an option to append a suffix to the end of a sample or an option to rename would be useful. Be sure to submit this as a feature request with the MPC 2 Software's built-in feedback module. The feedback module is represented by a smiley icon at the lower right side of the software next to the browser icons. This information goes directly to the Akai team for consideration!
