Exporting from standalone

I just got a One and I am getting frustrated and feel like I should have kept my touch. I am used to doing my tracks inside of the mpc software and clicking the export icon thing and dragging them over into Studio One where I mix and record vocals possibly. I can't find any way to get my tracks out of standalone over to another DAW of choice like I did before, which was super fast and simple. Also the factory sound banks, are not in my download list for mac. I see the factory content for PC and standalone, but no Mac version.

  • Hey Terry,

    Thanks for posting!

    There are many different ways to export your MPC tracks to Studio One. I've found the quickest way is to save your standalone project on an external drive (SD, USB flash drive) and connect it to your computer. Open this project in the MPC Plugin within Studio One. Now, you will be able to use the Audio/MIDI Export icons to drag and drop your tracks directly within Studio One.

    Are you looking at your Akai Pro account? All factory content that is included on the One's internal drive will be available for download after registering the unit. To access your downloads, sign in to your account, click on My Account and then My Registered Products.

    Scroll down to the Software Downloads section and you will see your MPC Expansions, Plugins, and Legacy Expansions. The downloads are separated by OS, so you will see downloads for your Mac.

    It's important to keep in mind that when your MPC One is connected in controller mode, you will not be able to access the hardware's internal drive. This is why all included content is made available to install on your computer. I recommend taking a look at this guide, it will show you how to properly set up for controller mode:

  • So I can no longer drag and drop tracks from the MPC software over into another Daw? I have to load via USB or SD card? If so I think I want to go back to my touch and take this back. The ease of just opening another Daw along side the MPC software and dragging it over to the other daw's window is so quick and easy.

    I have registered and I see the Standalone content, however it is only for PC. I did not see a Mac version.

  • Hey Terry,

    If you prefer to use the One with your software then just put the One into controller mode. Then the hardware will interact with your software just like the Touch.

    I took a look at the factory content and I see what you're saying. The standalone version can be downloaded to your Mac. It's just a sample library of all the wavs, programs and content that comes on the One's internal drive.

    After you download the folder, place it in a location on your computer that you can access within the MPC Software. You also have access to all of the MPC Expansions that come with the X/Live. These all have Mac installers available.

  • I copied this from the instructions included in the factory Content download. If you take a look at the last sentence it says install from an installer, but where do I get the expansion installer from?

    To install on a standalone Akai product (Force, MPC Live, MPC One or MPC X):
    1. Select the drive where you want to install the content. Make sure that the drive has enough free space to hold the entire pack. We recommend that you chose an internal SATA drive for ease of use.
    2. Connecttheselecteddrivetoyourcomputer.
    3. Create a folder in the root directory of the drive (not in any folder) called Expansions, if one does not already exist.
    4. Place the content folder (i.e., the folder found beside this document) inside the Expansions directory you created. Make sure you copy the folder itself, not the content within it.
    5. Waitforthefilestocopy,andthensafelyejectthedrivetoensurealldataiswritten.
    6. InsertthedriveintoyourForce/MPC.Yourexpansionwillappearinthefilebrowser.
    To install into desktop MPC Software, please obtain the separate desktop installer which will simplify the installation process.
