Akai Force Forum: Everything relating to the Akai Force, the new 64 pad, clip-based standalone sampler/groovebox from Akai. While not an MPC, it shares many similar software features to the MPC X/MPC Live including the same underlying code-base.

MPC-Samples.com has a growing collection of MPC Expansions which are fully compatible with the Akai Force including many multisampled acoustic instruments, drum kits and synths, all ready-to-load and fully compatible with Note Mode.

All expansions feature a drag and drop 'standalone' expansion installer which places the expansion in the Force's browser under the 'Expansions' tab.

I was curious "how" you create an installer for the Force?

I read your docs on creating an Expansion Pack but the it couldn't find how to create a standalone installer and actually get it onto the Force.

EDIT : Sorry, I totally missed your single paragraph about this. I am having problems with actually installing it on the Force with the 'Expansions' folder on the USB key.

I figured out I was missing the concept of "install". The Force just reads from the USB "Expansions" directory and just needs to be mounted for the expansion to show up in the browser.

Sorry for the noise.

I think this is often made too complicated. The Force and MPC are very friendly and whatever you put on your SSD or SD under whatever folder will be still accessible in Places. Making it an expansion is a bit extra step that makes Force and MPC display a little thumbnail and sort it under Expansions. If you have MPC software you can use the expansion builder but I found out that is just totally unnecessary. I mean for commercial project yes, nice to have thumbnail and sample play, but for your own stuff - just sort it to folders as you feel fit and all is good.
