How To Sync Akai Mpc With Fl Studio

Posted by Ms.Tris On June - 1 - 2011

Great morning to you…. feels like we skipped through the end of spring to summer…it’s code red heat on the east

I am in super beat mode this week. I have basically been real slow with adding new beats to the site. Mainly because I was having such a hard time mixing my tracks the way I like. Once projects got started, I found myself spending hours and hours just getting the kicks right. This was all due to new equipment and new mixers. Today I am so back in stride again. The set up I have now is perfect for me. I am still a newbie engineer, but the mixes are finally getting there.

I can say that the two years of mixing headaches helped me learn a lot. I know so much more about sound and frequencies. I understand what a compressor does, and most plugin effects as well. Sometimes you may not see the bigger picture, but hang in there when trying to get your sound correct. Keep creating and practicing the mix, good things will happen with your music.

I have all my software flowing smooth. Now it’s time for the final step of connecting all my hardware and syncing the midi. I am still trying to get the Mpc2500 to work as a Slave to my DAW. I don’t like sequencing on the Mpc. I figure I could use it as a module while running other hardware via “midi thru”, and recording the midi inside the DAW. I’m also revisiting a few videos that I posted about using Reason as a sound module in the mpc:

I am basically connecting everything to sync with one DAW. All hardware and all software to record inside Reaper or Studio One. After making a a beat yesterday with Fl Studio, I realized I’ve never tried to sync the mpc2500 to it at all. Since I am in tech mode, I figured I may as well give it a go…

Here is a quick video which is not high quality but gets straight to the point:
