Hey guys,

Since the 2.2 update I've been trying to get a user template to load by default. Ive saved it the project as a template, and selected the template via preferences, but to no avail its not working. Ive tried it on an external hd, the internal hd, in a folder and out of a folder. I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong or of its just buggy. Any one tried this out?

I’ve been trying to do this myself. Would be nice if it works.

Then restart your MPC and it should work - I had the same Problem and somebody in another forum gave me this tip.


The new project dialogue says “not installed,” so is there anyway around that?

Hey dude, apologies on the late reply. I actually had to RMA my first X. I'm assuming by deleting all the installed content I deleted the function somehow. The person I had talked to didnt tell me this, I just assumed. But, when I got my new X I didnt delete any of the installed content and it works fine.

So, if I reset my MPC Live and add all the stuff back, it'd work?

No. It wont reset with the factory installs. Honestly, your best bet is to build a basic project that you know you use consistently and load it up everytime or start a dialog with someone on the official Akai support forums and see if they'll RMA it. Honestly, it was almost a silly thing to send it in for. The process to load a user template isn't much different than they way they have tried to streamline it. You'll still do a bit of menu diving. but its not long at all.

Yeah, it’s not that big of a deal for me... I always delete everything off my MPCs to try to build my own custom library (struggling with building my drum kits); that what I intended to do when I got my MPC Live...

Other than that, my MPC works good. She’s got a 1TB HDD in her, so I ain’t got to worry about running out of space ever... LOL.
