    MPC1000 MIDI Out –> to Project Mix I/O MIDI In,
    Project Mix I/O MIDI Out –> to MAC or PC MIDI In
    The MPC1000 should transmit MIDI data/messages to your Project Mix I/O console, which will retransmit them through its MIDI out port into your MAC computer where Pro Tools should intercept them, depending on if you properly configured your MPC1000 in Pro Tools.
    All MIDI hardware devices transmitting MIDI, should appear either by name, or as generic MIDI controllers, in Pro Tools or other DAW warez.

    Thanks Bro this Helps a lot do you happen to know How an interface can fit in to all of this like if it’s possible to be able to connect a keyboard with my MPC1000 and be able to use ALL My keyboard and MPC INTERNAL sounds on any type of software WITH the Software sounds itself I know how to use them as a MIDI controller to play software sounds but just saying if u know how this can all be possible if u understand me? I have researched about this but I want to verify on all of this…

    3.5mm Y Stereo RCA cable also im using quarter inch headphone jack adapter to fit with my board’s headphone jack. TIPS: no need to use external mixer just use the build in mixer of your mpc all you need is “Y QUARTER INCH STEREO cable” to set it up.. plug the main stereo jack to ur board then the other end will go to your mpc’s rec input, on mpc turn the REC KNOB 2 normal position, press Mode-Pad9 Mixer then enable the AUDIO INPUT, on ur board turn the VOL to normal position dats it start playin

    what were the other wires you need to connect it all together(NOT THE MIDI WIRES) the ones you connected on the stereo out?

    when you save your project on your mpc will the sounds that you recorded into your mpc from the keyboard save into your mpc??? so that when you load your project on your mpc the recorded midi sounds should play without the need to load the project on your keyboard…

    instead of 2b just use 1b, you get 16 tracks for each midi, 1a through to 16a will be ur mo pho and 1b through to 16b will be the other.

    @mathbsound yes you can record and playback chords,, so the midi it records can be polyphonic.

    Thanks for the response man. I figured it out the other day. I didn’t know recording midi would not record the synth patch along with note pitch, velocity, etc. I was actually trying to record the audio, so with my synth, for some reason, I had to hook up synth phones-mpc rec in (instead of audio out-rec in) and synth audio out- mix (for anyone’s reference)…. anyways, thanks again.

    bizmarkie507 at - Reply

    hmmmm. you sure you change the sequence to a new unused number in the mpc when you try to record the new patches? if not, hmmm i really don’t know i’ll have to monkey around with that in the near future to see if i get that problem also

    Hey, nice tutorial. I tried followin everything you did for my own setup, hooking up the ins/outs, syncing my synth/mpc, and was able to record a sequence, but when I try to record a different patch for a seperate track the synth’s program I previously recorded changes. Tried the manual, forums, google search…you have any ideas?

    The mpc records midi notes. Either these note trigger the samples stored on the mpcs cf card, or sounds from an external sound module. If the sound module (e.g. keyboard) is not connected, you will not hear nothing. You may connect another keyboard, but for obvious reason the sounds are different, only the notes and probably gate times remain static.

    My mpc should be midi synced with my korg electribe. Question is, will the MPC as a slave send the midi clock messages through its midi out using the soft thru option? I read about lot of people having problems with the midi soft thru.

    question so lets say you load up a song you did yesterday using a friends keyboard and recorded your midi notes but dont have the same keyboard hooked up will it play back the song or will it play back blank because its just the midi notes?

    From what I understand, midi paterns will be recorded in the mpc 1000 but if you wanted to make it as a song in the mpc without the keyboards connected, how would you do it in order to have the keyboard sounds coming out of the mpc? Sorry if it’s not clear…
