Maybe someone can help. I’ve got the MPC Live and bought the Morningstar MC6 MK2. I’ve connected them. There seems to get Midi message through (since there is this Midi Symbol on the MPC flashing when hitting a button on the MC6) but the MPC doesn’t do anything.
Thanks for your replies. It hasn’t worked so far. Maybe it has anything to do with the Midi settings on the Akai or the Morningstar? When connecting the Morningstar via USB there are 4 devices showing up in the Akai (see picture). Maybe this is problematic?
How are you trying to send the MIDI message from the MC6 to the MPC?
If both the MC6 and MPC are only connected to your computer by USB then by default the computer is not going to take MC6 midi out and send it to MPC midi in. If you want the computer to relay the message you’ll need some software on the computer to tell it to do that.
If you have the MC6 midi out connected by midi cable directly to the MPC midi in then it should work.
If you’re using one of the omniports to send midi out then you’ll need to configure that in the settings.
From page 322 of the MPC Live manual, a few steps are required to tell it to listen for the midi control messages:
