  • It depends. With 2.2 you can change map any track/program/fx controller to external MIDI CC's, means you can use it as _very_ deep sampler plugin in Cubase. In other hand, you still can't send multitmbral notes to the MPC nor in plugin or standalone mode, so you can't access many tracks in the same time.

  • Hey certified,

    Thanks for posting!

    The MPC Software will still open as a plugin in you DAW and like most plugins, its sequencer will follow the tempo of your DAW.

    When using the MPC in Controller mode, you can enter MIDI Control Mode and assign selected buttons to parameters in your DAW (Note that MIDI Control Mode is a separate mode from Controller Mode).

    When MIDI Control Mode is enabled and the MPC Software is opened as a plugin or as standalone software, a graphic of the available controllers on the MPC will be shown in the plugin/software for reference and customization.

    If your DAW's tap tempo function can be MIDI mapped, you can assign it to one of the buttons on the MPC when MIDI Control Mode is enabled. The MPC's Tap Tempo button is one of the buttons that is available for assignment so I would recommend using that one!

    I hope that helps you!

    Thanks for helping out, Brian!
    • Nick D, is there any auto mapping already in place for Logic Pro X?

      MIDI Mode makes other features unavailable, correct? Pad Perform, for example.
    • Hey BezO,

      Thanks for posting!

      There is no special implementation for Logic Pro X or another DAW when using MIDI Control Mode. As you mentioned, other features will be unavailable when using MIDI Control Mode.

      I like to think of MIDI Control Mode (MCM) vs other modes on the MPC like using two separate machines. MCM effectively turns the MPC into an assignable MIDI pad controller. You can program the MPC's pads, knobs, and specific buttons to send specific MIDI data directly to your DAW in a way that is different than standard MPC operation or to bypass the MPC Software if you're using it as a plugin in the DAW.
