Hello, BRAND NEW MPC user here. Just bought a 2500 on Sunday!
(read: I know nothing, other than what I've been piecing together from about two weeks of research)
This is an admittedly noob question ... if I install JJOS Free, will I lose the samples that are already on this unit? Some are pretty cool. There's currently no CF card in the slot (didn't come with one, or a USB cable), but I'm a filmmaker as well as a musician, so I have a variety of 16GB and 32GB CF cards lying around.
The previous owner of this MPC sent me a video of all the pads working. When I turned it on at home, it either seems that some of the pads are NOT working, or that perhaps he just deleted some sounds from it.
I'm hesitant to start reading the original OS manual and spending all that time learning that system if I'm just going to switch to JJ OS Free in the short run. Just don't want to lose the sounds, as they provide me with SOMETHING to work with, and some are kinda cool. I put the MPC through my pedalboard and those sounds get pretty gnarly through my Whammy pedal and delay. (I'm thinking I'll probably record and sample those sounds too!).
Anyway, the short version of this, I'll repeat: Will I lose the sounds already on this unit if I put JJ OS Free on this 2500?
