Before you Update

Before making the jump to MPC 2.8, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. Projects created in the MPC 2.8 software will not be compatible with earlier versions of the MPC software.
  2. Owners of an MPC Live, MPC One, or MPC X will also need to perform the MPC 2.8 firmware update for compatibility with new features. See our guide here for instructions on updating your MPC X, MPC One, or MPC Live.
  3. The MPC 2.8 firmware update for MPC Live, MPC One, and MPC X can now be installed directly from a USB drive without connecting the MPC to a computer. Visit our guide here for a complete walkthrough.
