MPC 2.6 is announced: https://youtu.be/F0kQpD2cksQ

The new features are parameter automation editing (in the step sequencer and from the "top up" velocity panel below the piano roll); export to Ableton live sets & submixes (x8).

They have also updated the menu icons and added an option to quantize all tracks and categorisations for the effect browser (delay, dynamics etc).

Automation editing was a big feature that was missing for me and submixes add a lot of power which is great. Unfortunately neither of the big ticket items (better midi routing or disk streaming of samples) has been added.

Hey Daniel,

Thanks for posting!

I'm also very excited for the new features that will be implemented with the 2.6 update. There isn't an official release date announced yet but I will keep you all in the loop!

Let me know if you have any questions.

Save that file to an SD Card. Put card in the MPC. Then go to your settings screen. Hold shift while looking at the bottom of the screen. And press Update. Hit ok... And let it do it's thing. Oh and u have to be plugged in too

Well,..Ableton and Akai has been in bed together for awhile so Ableton got the first DAW proprietary button, because looking at the Ableton export,..I have been doing that with every song I has created Exporting wav Explode tracks,...with insert effect,...and tale length,...bit/sample rate directly to my Cubase 10 export folder. open DAW import audio all tracks load,..just remember the tempo. The ability to change Pan position after export is probably an option. Track db values is matched if selected. I think it will be in true edit/mix form like it is in the MPC,...just in a committed WAV. environment. I will use it just to see if i can create my final mix faster,....audio mixdown to wav,.....then it goes to Cubase 10 for vocal record an final.

My understanding is that moving 2.6 to the top of the list is under consideration.

Fingers crossed!

The file size sounds correct. The problem is probably the filename. The name suggests it's a second copy. Rename it without the ' (1)' (no space) then put it on the root directory of a USB thumb drive. Don't have the computer connected but have the power adapter in place. Start the device up and go to settings. On the main page that shows the software version hold shift then press update (on the bottom of the touchscreen). It should tell you there is an updated version on the connected drive. If this doesn't work for you, you can try updating from the computer by downloading one of the other update files. In any case this is all documented on the akai pro website.
