Yo dudes
I picked up a mint condition Renaissance today. Registered the serial on the Akai site but when I try to download software and drivers nothing happens... I realize that most software is probably discontinued at this point due to the Ren being so old...but is there any way of me at least updating the drivers for the Ren so I can still fully use it with Ableton or another DAW?

Or does anyone here have the driver files for me to install?

Please Help - I'm dying to use this thing!!

Much love

Many of Akai's older download links are hosted on insecure URLs (http instead of https) and many browsers refuse to download them when accessed from a https page (the rest of Akai's site is secure). To workaround this, right click and copy the url address, open a new browser tab and paste the URL into the address bar. Should work now.

I just bought an excellent conditioned mpc renaissance a couple of days ago. But I can't get the software drivers to completely install, I always get a timeout error. I tried using two other computers same issue. Tried disabling UAC, ran system file checker, Uninstaller driver reinstalled, all with no success. I downloaded the 2.9.64 driver for windows 10. The funny thing is on my mpc beats 2.11 it shows up as a device but will not load the input and output says it cannot find driver.

If anyone can help me that would be awesome!

I am using my dell latitude 7480
