Mpc2500:Midi Notes In Numeric Order

Posted by Ms.Tris Beats On June - 4 - 2008

If you are using the Midi function on your Mpc2500, you’ll want the notes to go in chromatic order. This is pretty easy to do. Hit “MODE” then hit “MIDI/SYNC” to open the “Default Assign” screen pictured below

next scroll to the first midi note “37(C#1)”. Using the “DATA WHEEL” turn it left until you reach “35(B 0)”. You have just changed “37 (C#1) to 35(B )”. This is the lowest possible midi note on the Mpc2500. Use the “CURSER” right arrow and move to next midi note it should read “36( C 1)”. Use the “CURSER” right arrow to the next midi note which by default is on “42 (F#1)”, change that to “37 (C#1)”. You can see now that it’s going in numeric order, as well as midi note order equal to notes on a piano. In this lesson our next notes would be “*38 (D 1)” . Here is where your curser movement changes to get to the next level of notes. Your 4 bottom notes go from 35-38. Next hit ” Curser Up” function then “Curser left” to get to the first note on second row “40( E 1)”, following order change that to “*39 (D#1)”, then curser right to next note and change it to “40( E 1)…Continue through each bank “Banks A-D” placing each note to the right in numeric order. Now you’re set to play midi notes in order. This also sets the Mpc up to control your Vst instruments in order. Once you have your midi connections correct, if you are controlling something like the FL Studio Slicer, you can play your samples in order 1-36 , from the mpc. feel free to ask questions or leave comments….

  4. Hello Poul, I haven’t found a way to save the settings. Not quite sure you can save so it loads on start up other than within the song file itself :-(.
