Greetings guys
I just bought a used MPC1000 from Japan which was shipped to me in the Caribbean and I noted two issues which I am hoping you can give guidance to solve this problem

Firstly, when I activate the 16 level button it is not splitting the sample to all 16 pads with different pitch.
All 16 pads would still have the same exact sound as the original sample.

Secondly, if I am moving from one sequence to the next the mpc doesn't complete the number of bar count, it will suddenly go to the next sequence

By the way the MPC is showing JJ 3.16 when I boot it up but it looks like the original MPC software is running.
I don't know if this is confusing the MPC why I have the two issues above.

Please assist me, thanks

I think you will have a better response at the JJOS section here.


Your 1000 no longer runs on the Akai firmware but is on JJ 3.16, which is a hacked version of the Akai.

Don't worry though, the JJOS is considered superior and far more flexible than the Akai OS. You can revert back to the old OS anytime.
