Trigger 2 programs at once

Hi wondering if there is a way to link 2 programs so they trigger at the same time?

I am into finger drumming and want to play XLN addictive drums on a plug-in program but also have drum program being triggered by the same pads at the same time to allow me to add additional hits or samples under the XLN sounds.

I know ways to do this in Logic (track stacks) and Ableton (instrument rack) would love a way to do it in the MPC software.

  • Hey Jonny,

    Thanks for posting!

    Only the currently selected program will be triggered by an input from an MPC or an external MIDI controller. That said, I can understand why you would want to so be sure to submit this as a feature request with the MPC 2 Software's built-in feedback module. The feedback module is represented by a smiley icon at the lower right side of the software next to the browser icons. This information goes directly to the Akai team for consideration!

    If you need an alternative method of submitting feedback, you may use the following links:

    Thanks for your feedback!
