I sent this e-mail to AKAI asking for support.
Has anyone experienced this issue or know the resolution?
------------e-mail sent to AKAI Support------------------
Is there a know bug within AKsys when doing the following:
Double click sample, it loads my configured sample editor (Sound Forge)
I make changes to the sample, save it.
I don't get prompted to re-transmit the sample back to the MPC.
I have to click ANOTHER sample inside AKsys then it tells me the original sample
has been changed and prompts for a transfer.
I click "YES" and the program crashes.
I try to launch AKsys again and get the error msg
"USB error15 on z48 - uninitialized it may be unplugged"
I have to reboot my PC.
This happens every time I attempt to edit a sample within AKsys on the MPC.
Some information about my setup.
Aksys 2.53 PC Version
Windows XP PRO
MPC 4000 with the latest 1.51 OS
Thanks for your help.
There should be no special setup procedure to launch your sample editor from with ak.Sys on
a PC and basically, if opening files with a .wav extension opens your sample editor elsewhere
on your PC, then the association between .wav files and the sample editor has been made and
samples can be edited from within ak.Sys as well.
NOTE: If there is some problem opening .wav files within ak.Sys, you may like to visit Windows
Explorer, click on My Computer and in the VIEW menu, select FOLDER OPTIONS and then in
the FOLDER OPTIONS window, select FILE TYPE - here you can set your own file
However, you can also nominate a sample editor by clicking on the SAMPLE EDITING menu
item. In the menu select CHOOSE SAMPLE EDITOR. The usual navigation windows will be
shown and you should find your way to the sample editor you want to nominate. For example:
Simply double click on the application’s icon.
You can revert to the default system association using the USE SYSTEM ASSOCIATION
button. Also, if the nominated application is deleted or uninstalled (or can’t be found for
whatever reason), ak.Sys will revert to the system association.

SAMPLE EDITING - PC
Your sample editor will launch within ak.Sys under the following circumstances:
• When you double click on a sample in the ak.Sys BROWSER
• When you select EDIT in the contextual menu in the sample name field of a keygroup zone
• When you select EDIT in the sample SEARCH window (see later regarding this)
When you use your sample editor in any of the ways described above, the sample is
automatically transferred via USB to your computer where it can be edited in your nominated
sample editor. When you are happy with the results of your edit, use the editor’s SAVE or
SAVE AS... function to save the sample - it will be automatically transferred back to the sampler.
NOTES ABOUT SAVING/TRANSFERRING SAMPLES
When you edit a sample in your sample editor via ak.Sys, the file is transferred from the sampler
to your computer and placed in a temporary, invisible ak.Sys folder called “AKSYS WATCHED”.
The sample editor is also launched (if not open already) and the sample can be edited in the
When you come to save the sample, it is saved to this ‘watched’ folder and then automatically
transferred back to the sampler .
The SAMPLE WATCH menu option allows you to clear this folder if disk space is at a premium.
However, please note that the ‘watched’ folder is automatically flushed whenever you exit
NOTES ABOUT SOME SAMPLE EDITORS
Some sample editors save their loop information in a separate file within the WAVE file. If you
edit a sample from the sampler in such an editor, when transferred back, there is a risk that loop
information will not be preserved.
ak.Sys so far no problems because everything is automatic. I just check by on the MPC or Aksys to see if the samples been changed or not. Check if you looped, changed the bit rate and etc in the window or edit screen.
