My bad............user error..........got confused with the q link buttons.They have to be lit for the parameters to show. :shock: Getting confused cos also got a Q link slider that needs changing.And its button is dodgy.Apart from that I’m loving this 2500.Especially with slider set to sample start .Cant live without that now.Gonna learn JJ)OS inside out.

I'm new to JJOS and just upgraded to the newest JJOSXL and I can't preview samples. I'm trying to build a program but I can't hear the samples when I highlight them.

From main, I hit mode and load and I see the files on my flash card. But when I highlight them and hit play, I hear nothing. I've tried listening in headphone outs and my monitors and I know the 1000 makes sound so it has to be something im doing wrong. Any help?
Its a pain to find any real guides to this OS besides the manual, and that thing is not easy to follow.

I'm on JJOS 2XL and I am probably not on the latest version. Sometime this weekend I'll update it and see if I can get it to work.


Ok that would make a lot of sense then. And yeah i do it on the 4000 as well so I figured we could on JJOSxl. How do you build kits then? Maybe i should wipe my CF card and then just do all that work on the pc and then just load the handpicked stuff in?

I'm in the same boat as you. I sample lots of drum loops and drum hits into the MPC 1000, edit them, and organize them by date and save. So I have drums spread out in lots of different folders.

I need to copy them all to a PC and organize them into programs and experiment with layering them. Rather do it on a PC since I have CF card reader on my PC.

There used to be old programs like bluebox and mpc maid. I don't know which ones still work and how compatible they are with JJOS2XL. Hopefully someone else here can fill us in on what program they are using on PC to edit programs for MPC 1000/2500.
