Reinstalled MPC Software and Plug-Ins but they don't appear in the Plug-In list.

Reinstall of OS X and MPC Software. Now I can't find my Akai Plug-Ins. (i.e. The Wub, The 809, The Bank, and The Noise). Nothing is listed under Plug-Ins except for Hybrid 3. I reinsralled my Mac OS X and MPC software and now I'm missing the plug-ins which came with my Renaissance. Did they relocate the plug-in data on the hard drive? If so where do I need to search for the plug-ins or is something else going on? I tried installing them all twice and the data is definitely there.

Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting!

    I'm assuming that you installed straight to MPC 1.9? The Bank, The 809, etc. all have updates from the original disc version to add compatibility for later versions of MPC. You can find these 1.3 updates for the expansions available in the 1.8.2 download for MPC or find the full versions available for download on your account page.

    As soon as you update to the 1.3 version they should show up automatically.

    I hope this helps!

  • Hi Corey... Thanks again!

    Quick and easy fix.

    My question.. (Two actually) Why do we need to do this? (shouldn't this be included in the 1.9 upgrades)? And how was I supposed to know this?

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the late response.

    These updates came out back with 1.7, I think to add 64-bit support with the rest of the MPC software. I'm not sure why it was decided not to include the updates in the 1.9 installer. My guess is that customers should now be getting the updated versions from their account pages anyway if they recently purchased the products, and it was just dubbed unnecessary to include them in the latest installer. Other customers were likely past the 1.7 update before updating to 1.9 anyway.

    I'm guessing that you had installed from the disc first and then updated straight to 1.9?

    It does appear to be a more common problem since 1.9 was released. I am looking into this to see if there is anything we can do to better direct customers to start downloading everything from their account page instead navigating the maze of updates that have come out over the years.

    Hi Corey...

    Yes.. I did install the Original MPC Software and then jumped straight to the 1.9.2 version. I had just re-imaged my Mac and didn't run each update. Seemed counterproductive to me. But you did point me in the right direction.

    The other issue was I didn't "Log-In" to get the updates. I went straight to the Product page which also contains the updates under "docs/downloads". I believe this was where my confusion came into play... They don't list the individual updates for each expansion. The Bank, 809, etc... only the main MPC Software and firmware updates. So I just downloaded the latest 1.9.x version and installed from there. From now on I will make sure to Login to my account to get the Latest updates.

    Thanks for the follow-ups. Still love me Renaissance!
