Is there a way to use a foot switch in a sequence mode on MPC X?

Hello dear community,

is there a way to use footswitches on MPC X to go select between sequences in the Next Sequence mode? I do play a lot of bass live with the mpc and sometimes it would be very handy to get to the next sequence while still playing.

Really wondering.

Many thanks in advance,

Anton

  • Hey Anton,

    Thanks for posting!

    The MPC X has two Footswitch inputs that can be assigned to a variety of parameters for hands-free control. To configure the Footswitch, go to Hardware Preferences and select Footswitch 1. Scroll through the available functions and select Next Sequence.

    Keep in mind that while you can initiate a Sequence change with a foot pedal, it will be constricted to their occurring order within the Project. For example, pressing the Footswitch while in Sequence 1 will progress to Sequence 2, and Sequence 2 to Sequence 3, etc. You will not have the ordering freedom that Next Sequence mode affords with the pads.

    Hope this helps!

  • Hi there !
    Is this feature you are describing also available while in Song Mode ?
    [i.e. does the MPC X offer the ability to 'jump' to next sequence, by hitting a foot pedal, while a song is actually playing in Song Mode ? (the purpose being, to navigate quicker through the song)]
    Many thanks !
