MPC mp3 Compatibility Issue resolved

Featured image for “MPC mp3 Compatibility Issue resolved”

Hey everyone,

As I mentioned before, the previous update to MPC firmware 2.11 had an issue preventing the importing and playback of mp3 files which greatly affected creators of independent sample libraries like myself. While our expansion would still work fine, our patch previews – most commonly saved as mp3 files to conserve space – were no longer playing.

Luckily, AKAI’s latest update has resolved this issue and I would strongly recommend updating your MPC.

Thanks and happy producing!
