Hallo,
"Purge unused samples" does not work. When i hit the button nothing happens. Purge all samples works fine.
I also downgraded to 2.9, but this did not help either.
Please help me i am new with the mpc..
thanx

Unused means samples in memory but not associated with any program.
Those are the ones that will be deleted/purged.

If you have sounds on pads they are “in” a program and will not be purged.

Thanks alot my friend, i will try out what u said..
When i use just one sound of a program its not possible to get rid of the rest with "purge unused samples"??.
(I know there is another possibility of deleting samples with "edit samples" funktion in the main view.)
Shoutz from beautiful Vienna..

If you're in a drum kit, from MAIN you can go to the ASSIGN SAMPLES page (bottom right section of the display) and then clear or over right unused samples... it's one way to do it.

Though honestly, storage is pretty cheap. You're probably making more of a headache for yourself cleaning up kits/programs unless you have very specific memory or storage constraints.
