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.

Hello Akai Force lovers! I am coming from the world of NI M+ and I regret not buying the Force earlier. I just got it this week. But there is one thing I can't find an answer for.
On the MPC ONE and Maschine +, you can see the chords on the screen. I don't know if it this is possible on the Force. Does anybody know how to do this? Is it possible at all? Any video tutorial recommending on how to create custom chords?

Thanks

I understand what you are saying because it bugs me as well. In pad performance mode you don't get a screen layout of the chords and notes like you do in the MPC line. I understand that there are more pads but we dont need Giant blocks of letters. Smaller text with appropriate sized buttons would do.

This is fastly becoming my biggest complaint with the force. Fix this please AKAI.
