Disc drive doesn't work. Is software available online for Renaissance owners to download?

I was about to go to the store and buy a usb disc drive because my Superdrive doesn't work. Is the software available online for Renaissance owners to download?

(ONLY THAT WOULD BE TOO CONVENIENT ("WINK, WINK; KNUDGE, KNUDGE", AKAI] .. )

I downloaded it onto my Dad's pc and from that onto a new PCY flash drive and the software doesn't transfer.

I had thought about downloading the diss onto the drive but that doesn't work. (Or does it - I didn't try it out)

  • The MPC Software itself can be downloaded, just get the latest MPC Software update.

    The additional content (loops/samples) on the MPC Software installation disc, and the 4 MPC Expansion discs, are normally not available to download.

    Akai support here have posted links to download disc images of the installers previously, not sure if they can do so again.

    Not sure how you would get the Mac installers off of the discs on a PC, to transfer across to your Mac, maybe you could make a disc image of the installation discs, in some sort of disc image format that works on both the Mac and the PC.
