After some googling this thread was the first thing to pop up. I also was kicking around the idea of making a sampler with arcade buttons etc. I haven't dedicated any time into it but I am an electrician with a background in control work. I don't have much coding experience, that's why I was thinking it would be easier using the MPC studio with a Pi.
Well considering no one has the source code for the MPC2000 at all, Im pretty sure absolutely nothing ever became of it and he made himself a useless box of parts.
No one can "port" the MPC2K OS to anything, if it was that simple, someone would've done it 20 years ago jeez. Software does NOT work like that at all.
Thanks for the quick reply. I thought this thread may have been dead! I was on a google search for "mpc studio raspberry pi" and this thread popped up first. I have never written any software nor am I familiar with with the MPC2k software.
I *asked only to see if anything developed from this ambitious project, my real interest was if the MPC Studio software could run on an SBC and then interface with the MPC Hardware. It's looking like the specs for the studio sw are looking for a 2.5 GHz duo core, 4 GB of RAM and 2gb of storage. I am sure there is an SBC that has better than those specs.
I'm not here to wire a bunch of **** together and then pretend as if any software developer that has the ability "to port" the mpc2k OS over to my contraption would be lucky to be a part of my project.
I already own the MPC Studio. I am about to pull the trigger on the MPC X soon and was looking to set up the MPC studio (I have sitting around collecting dust) for my kids to play with via a SBC (ideally). I may end up craigs listing a laptop that can support the MPC studio, but thought it would be a cooler project to put it on an SBC.
