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 have a question on how to setup the Force for live looping.

Here's my desired workflow:
Click any empty clip button in the launcher to start recording. Click it again to play. Click any occupied clip button to play.

My current settings:
Record Launch: Pad
Clip Record To: Play
Record Arm: Multi
All tracks armed.

The resulting behavior is almost as desired, with the exception that clicking an occupied clip on Midi, Drum and Plugin tracks leads to overdub mode instead of play. Clicking on an occupied clip in an audio track, on the other hand, goes to to play.

1. Is there no overdub for audio tracks at all?
2. Is there a setting somewhere, where I could adjust this behavior, so it's the same for all track types, preferrably click to play on occupied, and click to record on empty clips?

How do you do that? Thanks for any help,

I could of course disarm the track, but don't like that because
* one extra click to disarm, another click to re-arm
* I need to keep track of which tracks are armed
* re-arming a track starts overdub mode immediately, would prefer to start recording by clicking on the desired clip button.

Best, Boris
