Hardware manufacturer Akai has just announced the release of new operating systems for every current MPC. Perhaps this large batch of fixes is a reaction to the popular trend of MPC bashing resulting from the botched release of the MPC 5000. Regardless, early adopters of the MPC 5000 will be relieved to know that OS v1.02 has resolved 14 issues and now allows the loading of MPC 2000 programs into the unit.
Now if we could only convince the execs at Akai to bring back (or at least continue to support) the rock solid MPC 2000 XL… the world would be a much better place!
Other operating system improvements include:
- MPC 2500 OS v1.24 – Allows opening of Chop Shop 2.0 files and improves upon 13 performance details.
- MPC 1000 OS v2.12 – Chop Shop 2.0 (file opening & saving), auto-detect split points, loop patched phrases, record Track Mute events, load MPC 5000 .all files, plus resolves 17 issues.
- MPC 500 OS v1.31 – Enhances performance in two areas.
