What up. I run the keyboard sound through a focusrite twin track pro
pre-amp.I run the drums straight to protools. After everthing is tracked
out, I mix each sound with the waves diamond bundle.
shit were u get that kick n snare ???
I run the mpc straight to protools using the 8 outs on the mpc.
do u got a soundclick?
I hear that DR-5 all day…..
man try to send that to black wall street game would go hard on that man i
can hear him in my head on that one
shit..go easy on them pads u brute..lol..but hot beat man
theres a total of 14 outs on the mpc if u really know the mpc and u can
track them into the computer by having a audio interface that supports 1/4
and digital ins then set ur ins on pro tools and then record
Hey can you tell me how to make that keyboard work with te MPC 2500 I GOT
Everything you got in that video Keystation 88. My Zone and Group on there
is fucked up and it wont trigger my MIDI can you help? Were can I email you?
Do you track out your 2500 on a mixing board or do you run it str8 to pro
yeah. I use the mpc for sampling and drums. That’s it.
yo that beat is fire dog…i just started with the axiom49 and ableton
where do u suggest i go next?
no just a myspace page
check all my beatt
nice beat but keyboard fucked it up
word, I got my 4000 runnin into a mackie 16 channel and the the mackie into
a 003 rack.
i got snares from records or I find them on limewire.
niceeeee got 5s
i have some sample cds. i get some drums from other producers i know.
use the midi out on the keystation pro board. run it to any on your midi
ins on the mpc2500. Also when you cut your keyboard on, hold down the – &+
buttons where it says snapshot on the keystation. that will reset anything
you’ve screwed up. I dont use and of the knobs and faders on the
keystation. hopefully that helps you out.. holla
no. look at my setup video to see what i have.
@MegaSniv check ur inbox
@dustindef ….sometimes the timing is slightly off. Pre roll is set to 2
bars so the the software can make the necessary corrections. The 2 bars is
sufficient because PT makes corrections rather fast…….it’s safe that
Gosh, I wish I would have had that inatmrfoion earlier!
Excellent video. I’m trying to sync my Motif XS keyboard to Logic and this
was a very useful video..How are you able to do a multri track recording?
Have you set your MPC tracks to multiple outputs? Im confused :(. My
question is – You have tracked out drums, bass, keys and some lead on the
MPC. How do these come out on different tracks in Protools? Please help and
thanks again for this information! 🙂
USING MBOX 2 WHAT KINDA TRACKS DO YOU USE TO RECORD MONO OR INSTRUMENT
At the time of this video. I was using a DIGI002 interface with 8 inputs. I
was able to plug individual outputs from the MPC into the soundcard. You
need a multiple input soundcard/interface to record more then one sound @ a
how are they opened up as your tracks?
you have to record each track into pro tools with a multi input audio
I run protools 7.3 this doesnt seem to work… any help?
would i be able to record 8 mono tracks at once? do they have to be stereo?
lets say i wanted all 8 outputs sending signal to pro tools. and each 1 had
its own sound/sample, would it work to send all 8 out and assign inputs 1-8
in pro tools
hey why do you keep two bars blank when you can just set the count in
Cool tutorial, but doesn’t this method kill the mpc’s swing?
I keep two bars blank to insure that there’s a lot of time for Pro Tools
and the MPC to sync up through Midi Time Code. When syncing 2 sequencers
it’s always good to have blank bars before the actual start of the
track/song, easier for the 2 machines to communicate. Thanks for watching!
did you upgrade yours mpc’s os cause my midi/sync doesnt have those options
What interface are you using? I would love to know how you got it to record
more than one track at a time. I m doing things the really hard way.
thank you finally someone explains it correctly!!!! like like like you
should say mpc 1000 too cause thats what i synced to pro-tools 8
if you have a multi input soundcard and you can record in one pass with the
sounds separated then the swing will stay put. However you are correct that
if you attempt to sync the MPC with multiple recording passes that the sync
does shift. The small amounts of sync shift will cause you to lose the
“swing”. Best bet is to pan your drums + multi input soundcard if you wanna
use the MP. If not program the kick, snare & highhat. then dump your beat
into the computer.
Thanks for the reply. I have the mpc 2500 with a fireface uc (has 8
inputs). Have tried several ways an am still in the search of the best
method for tracking. Im not shure how the swing quantisation is applied on
the mp. On individual tracks in the sequence as like shifted notes or a
variation on its clock. If it is the last one the swing would be lost when
syncing to an external clock like a daw. Sometimes i export the sequence i
want to track to midi and import it into my daw (logic).
@TheSinghFIRE Definitely. For audio editing and sequencing I find Pro Tools
the easiest. It’s what I’m used to tho. Ableton also is very user friendly,
also works well when syncing the MPC. Pro Tools is the final stage for a
lot of people. There are many “professional” aspects to pro tools that you
won’t find in an Ableton or Reason(Record) for instance. Bottom line. Use
what your fastest with. & Learn your shortcuts.
LOL i already figured it out. nevermind.
Few days ago I bought me a MPC2000xl without the EB16-card. I want to know
now before I decide to buy it. Is it possible to use realtime EQ,
Compression etc in Pro Tools when I sync the MPC ? I want to use the MPC as
a master (or can this be done only when I use it as a Slave ?. All I want
is hitting the pads on the MPC and EQ in PT, and record as usual on the
MPC. Is it possible, how? what do I need more ? I have Pro Tools and a MIDI
Interface (Fast Track C400)
I got mine working but, the click always gets off, and I have the same
tempo. MPC is following PT8 but the clicks must be different feel or
is there any latency ?? do u think ill have a problem with a Celeron
Dual-core E3300 2.5GHz Processor ? and 8gb of ram
sadly you can only add effects from Pro Tools once the audio from your MPC
has been recorded into Pro Tools itself. You can add effects and monitor
the mpc with effects on the tracks inside pro tools however this is only
affecting what you “hear” not what’s actually being recorded. MPC as Master
or Slave works either way, however this doesn’t solve your problem
@kneticmusic i just got an mpc 2500, and i’m trying 2 insert the 2 blank
bars in the begining, tho i know how to do so, i notice, your loop only
plays bar 3 and 4. i’m trying 2 figure out how 2 do that without it looping
all the way back 2 bar 1 on the mpc.?
@rjk1482 check the beat making video I replied there also. but for multi
track recording I do use the multiple outs from the mpc and the motif into
my soundcard. each output from the mpc and motif has its own input on my
soundcard. for drumz sometimes mono and sometimes stereo depending on the
source(keys, poly synths). you need a multi input soundcard. inbox me if
you need suggestions.
