It looks like in MIDI mode, MPC Studio MK2 don't light up the pads or allow us to light up a specific button in a specific color.

Its there a way (MIDI Sysex ) how we could work around this problem ?

I was trying to monitor the MIDI signals while using MPC Software and setting the pad color but no MIDI messages got sent.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks !!!

I just purchased this as well and have the same problem!! Hope there is any luck for us. The only LED Color change is when you press the pad and the color code is based off of how hard you hit the pad. Light touch = yellow Hard Touch = Red. I want to have blue and green led lights already lit up while in Midi Control Mode and when working in other daws.

I have contacted AKAI support some days ago to request any MIDI Sysex documentation for MPC Studio MK2 but so for I did not get any answer :-(

Maybe someone have already tried to reverse engineering or have some ideas how it would work with other MPC products.
