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.

I downloaded the 3.0.3 USB image (Force- for updating the Force. When I put the USB in the Force and try to update I get a message saying:

"This drive contains firmware update 3.0.1 for your Force. You are already running this version. Do you want to re-install now?"


So I tried "re-installing" just to see if 3.0.3 would be installed. Nope, still 3.0.1.

Anyone else experience this problem? I could try the MAC version but don't have time tonight. Akai aren't making it easy to love the Force.

Good Lord...

When trying to install the new Firmware make sure that you don't have any OLD firmware hiding with your samples in that flashdrive that is so easily hidden on the front of the unit.

My bad. Sorry Akai. Love you.
