    Hello!

    Okay first, tell me if you want to compose your music on a software sequencer (ie a computer) or if you would like the MPC to be your sequencer/composer?

    For each solution is a different way to set your home studio up

    take care

    MPC2kXL

    I'm using the akai mpc2kxl as my sequencer and drum machine/sampler. I want to interface my JP8000 in the mix.

    Thanks!

    ok this is very possible, even Bjork is using an MPC as the sequencer on stage, connected to all the midi devices. perfect and stable

    You will need 2 midi cables: JP OUT > MPC IN and MPC OUT > JP IN

    Then you will need ot use the MPC sequencer.. I dont know how it works, so I will just guess: create a new track, make this track control an external midi device, and set it's MIDI channel to 1. You should be able ot select the instrument from the MPC (bank number, patch number) and if you hit the keys/pads on the MPC you should be able to hear the sound of the JP.

    Maybe someone who has an MPC could post some more information here.. would be great

    cool, i think that helps me a lot, i just got it setup
    when i create a program i can assign certain sounds
    to a note/keypad on the synth.. thanks man!

    you rock, and this website is the most useful thing i've found yet in my quest to learn production.

    thanks ....

    mpc - jp8000

    hi there

    in one of our microsite studios we have exactly what you've got

    mpc2000 and jp8000 - both beautiful bits of kit

    the jp is midi out to midi in (a) on the mpc and the midi in on the jp to the midi out on the mpc (1). basically this allows you to write into the mpc when sequencing, any notes for playback of the jp.

    if you run a mac in the setup you can then use cubase to sequence on, taking the sequencing aay from the mpc and onto the mac. the jp can then become the master controller playing bcl both itsself and the mpc. whatever way you wanna work. any questions drop us a line.

    cheers fil
