  • So far probs existing are -

    *Often I have to load a sample 3 or 4 times, before it actually sticks to the pad
    *Freezing on startup
    *Won't operate at a buffer of under 128 (and I have a very fast computer)

    I can't remember other issues at the moment.. Overall i'm having a ball with this thing.. congrats Akai :) I do wish the pads were more sensitive - ie when i hit really lightly i dont hear anything, and i find i have to hit too hard to get full volume. I've tried the settings at 1 & 1 and at 1 & 16. I'd love to hear if anyone has advice on this :)

  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting and for your feedback!

    I'll definitely forward along those symptoms for you. As far as the buffer size, that won't be affected by the MPC Studio as it doesn't process audio data. This would be more dependent on the capabilities of your audio interface and its drivers.

    Regarding pad sensitivity; there are a few settings in the MPC Software that will help. In the Preferences menu, Hardware section.

    Pad Threshold: Set this to 1 to recognize lighter playing.
    Pad Sensitivity: Higher values make it more sensitive, lower values less sensitive. This will be personal preference.
    Pad Curve: Also best to experiment here to get your preferred feel.

    Any new MPC Software updates will be announced and posted at the MPC Studio Docs&Downloads Section. If you're connected to the internet, your MPC Software will also prompt you for an update when available.

    While we will post on the forum once releases or announcements have been made, they will be made first at akaipro.com. We’re unable to discuss the status or development of unreleased software or products.
