Hi!

Some time ago I became the owner of a MacBook and wanted to install MPC Software 2.10 on it for my MPC Studio.
I installed it, I added a driver to it because you have to. I activated the license in iLOK, connected the equipment according to the instructions and the stairs began. Because the program turns on, works and so on, but as if it does not detect the controller. In the sense, the screen lights up, but shows only the word AKAI and nothing else.

Do you know what and where you need to turn on in the settings, maybe, or something to make it work?

People are reporting that the original (blue screen) MPC Studio is not supported on Big Sur, or it could potentially be an M1 issue. Akai claim that the silver studio is working in Big Sur

But no mention of M1 support. And in the recent release notes for 2.10, the MPC Studio Black was listed as working in M1.

https://www.akaipro.com/amfile/file/dow ... roduct/10/

So potentially a silver MPC Studio is not supported in an M1. Do you have an M1? Is it a silver or black studio? This is why it's important to give as much detail as possible in your posts.

It wont hurt to uninstall the driver completely (uninstaller found in Library > Application Support > Akai > MPC), reboot and reinstall the driver, try a different USB cable etc.

You're right.
I didn't tell all the information.

I have a MacBook with M1 and a silver MPC Studio.

I will try to uninstall everything and reinstall all the software with the driver.

I will let you know if it works


EDIT:
I reinstalled my software, driver and it still doesn't work.

Based on what Akai have published, the silver studio just isn't supported on M1 macs. Big sur apparently yes (cannot confirm this personally as I haven't updated to Sur yet). It's just the black studio that should work on M1, but there's a few posts here on the forum that dispute that as well. Looking at the drivers in the installer, the MPC Studio Black driver is from May 2020, so perhaps they've packaged the wrong driver, or maybe there's something in the MPC Software itself that now handles the existing driver correctly.

Obviously Akai mistakenly mention Black Studio on 2.10 info , pretty sure they mean the new Studio
Btw users report that Ren doesn't work on Big Sur (and the audio interface doesn't work since older OSX versions)

The Ren works on Big Sur (intel macs). Minus the interface.

I do think the Black Studio in the notes was them mistakenly the new Studio Black early.
