What preset editor Do the MPK 225 range use?

The mpd 232 uses AKAI "Software preset editor" is there a similar product for the MPK 225 new range of keyboards as I can not see a down load for anything like that on the akai website?

    None, weird huh? Basically you make any edits you want on the actual MPK225/49/61 itself, then do a SysEx Dump to store the presets onto computer if you want backups.

    I got the MPK261, & that was something that ticked me off right away. All the orig MPKs got an editor, even the small MPK2 mini got an editor, but not the MPK225/49/61.

    Nate,

    That is amazing I thought this may be the case because there was no download or Youtube videos for the MPK keyboards and editor. Doing a sysEx is so prehistoric for such a fantastic keyboard. Can I ask have you tried using the MPD232 editor on your MPK261it may work as it is a very similar piece of kit. I think in that case I will definitely be keeping my MPK25 that does at least still have vyzex editor that is so filled with bugs it is untrue. Unless anyone else knows different about a editor for the MPK225 etc keyboards.

    • No, I haven't. I tried downloading a bunch of different editors to see, like the old Vysek for MPK original series, but to no avail. I've done some pretty crazy mapping though, I even did a tutorial & put it on here, basically it fakes automap software, so that all the knobs automatically control the instrument/plug-in's parameters. Only for logic though. I have another set that's almost as good for Cubase. But I found that Logic is the only DAW that allows the MPK2 series to function the way you think it should, like with Tap Tempo, Sync'n etc. Check out link below (be sure to follow the other links in the post for a full description)

      What program do you use? I also got the MPK261 to mimic a Mackie Control, without feedback though, you have to open Controller Assignments to see it jump through modes/settings to know where u are(get used to it & remember anyway after awhile) if not, controller assignments acts as a feedback.
