BIG QUESTION

Can I record my keyboard into the Mpc 4000 without sampling or midi , just direct audio recording.

I hear no and that it has to be triggered by a midi note in order to do free and long recordings of live instruments like keyboards (no midi) and bass guitar.

It would make sense to me you can just press record and start playing away on the guitar when hooked up properly to the mpc4k.

My friends 2500 does this just fine.


any help?

Thanks in advance :nod:

4k cannot "record in" and play sequences at the same time.
Not all mpc's can do the same things as others, especially if jjos is involved.
