- Easy-to-use interface
- Assign note layout chromatically
- Audition samples by clicking the pads
- Edit and create MPC 1000 program files
- Drag samples out of program files into external audio editors or other program files
- Assign samples by dragging and dropping up to 256 samples at once
- Edit all values found in the Slider, Mixer, and Program modes of the MPC 1000
- Mac OS X 10.3
- Intel or PowerPC Mac (G3, G4, or G5)
How to use
- Choose "New" from the File menu to create a new program
- The new program has the same default values as a new program created by the MPC 1000
- Choose a pad and sample to edit
- Drag and drop .wav files into the sample well or onto the pads
- Only single .wav files can be dropped into the sample well. Multiple .wav files can be dropped onto the pads.
- Drag the currently selected sample from the sample well to external sample editors or other pads
- Edit values of the program file
Save or Export?
If you add or rename a sample in the program you should "Export..." the program.
- Choose "Save" or "Save As" from the File menu to save the program (PGM) file only
- Choose "Export..." from the File menu to create a new folder and export the program (PGM) file and all associated samples to the folder
Setting note layout for all pads
- Choose "Set note layout to chromatic" to set the note layout chromatically from B0 (Note 35) for Pad A1 to D6 (Note 98) for Pad D16
- Choose "Set note layout to default" to set the note layout to the MPC 1000's default values
Samples aren't found when loading the PGM...
The application finds samples the same way the MPC 1000 does. It looks for samples only in the same folder as the .pgm file. It behaves this way because program (PGM) files store only the names of samples, not the paths to samples.
If you add or rename samples in a program you should always choose "Export..." from the File menu. Doing so will export the PGM file and its samples and will ensure that samples will be found when the program is reloaded.
Some samples still don't load!
Program (PGM) files only store the first sixteen characters of sample file names because the MPC 1000 only views the first sixteen characters of file names. However, Mac OS X can view the full file names. Samples with file names longer than sixteen characters will not be loaded with the PGM file because the application only knows the first sixteen characters of the file name.
MPC Pad 187 will show a warning for these samples. When exporting, these samples will not be exported with the PGM file. Saving the PGM file will still function correctly.
By re-adding the samples with warnings to the program, the problem will be solved as MPC Pad 187 will never export samples with names it cannot load.
