The MPC One + features both complete standalone operation and full control over the MPC 2.0 software for the best of both worlds. This guide will discuss some of the popular questions about the MPC One+ and MPC 2.0 features and functionality. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the differences between the MPC One and the MPC One+?

The MPC One + boasts a new, red color edition making it stand out from previous MPCs. The MPC One+ houses increased internal storage quadrupling that of the previous MPC One taking the internal storage from 4GB to 16GB. 

What are the system specs of the MPC One+?

The MPC One+ has its own embedded system which sports a 1.8GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. For internal storage, the MPC One+ has 16GB onboard, with 7.8GB set aside for you to work with. You can use the onboard USB port and a full-size SD Card slot to add more samples or to provide extra storage.

What operating systems will the MPC One+ be supported on?

The MPC One+ and MPC 2.0 software will all be supported for use on Windows 10 and up, as well as Mac OS 11 Big Sur and up. This will only require the installation of a single driver to use the MPC One+ as a controller with MPC 2.0. 

What firmware version comes preloaded on the MPC One+? 

The MPC One+ comes preloaded the MPC 2.11.9, in order to use the MPC One+ in controller mode you will need to download the corresponding MPC 2.11.9 software version and driver.  This is all available in your inMusic Account under Software Downloads after registering your product.

How big is the display? Is it a touch screen?

The MPC One+ features a 7" full-color, multi-touch display (Resolution: 1280x800, Aspect ratio: 16:10) for navigating and controlling the internal software. This means that not only is it touch-capable, but it can handle multi-touch gestures like pinching to zoom in/out and double-tap for advanced settings.   

How much storage is there? How big is the internal hard drive?

The MPC One+ has 16GB of internal storage. 7.8 GB of this is free to use as internal storage for additional samples or projects. You can use the two onboard USB ports to add more samples or to provide extra storage. 

Does the MPC One+ include MPC Software version 2.0?

MPC One+ includes the latest version of the MPC Software, version 2.0. You can use the MPC One+ entirely standalone or as a controller for MPC Software 2.0.  

Can I record audio tracks on the MPC One+?

Yes! One of the great new features of the MPC One+ and MPC 2.0 software is the addition of audio track recording.  In the standalone mode, the MPC One+ will be capable of up to 8 full audio tracks, but the MPC 2.0 software can record as many tracks as your system can handle.   

Can I plug a USB MIDI controller into the USB ports of the MPC One+?

The USB ports on the MPC One+ have a variety of uses. They can be used to transfer files on and off of the MPC One+, as extra storage, and as input for USB MIDI controllers.  If you have a class-compliant MIDI controller (one that does not require drivers), you will be able to plug it directly into an available USB port on the MPC One+ and control MIDI information in the embedded system software. You can also connect class-compliant audio interfaces to record vocals, and instruments.

Can I add additional storage space?

Yes! The MPC One+  features two (2) USB ports for connecting thumb drives and other USB storage devices and an SD card slot for standard SD/SDHC cards. Virtually all drive sizes are supported, but we recommend formatting drives to exFAT, FAT32, or NTFS for the best results.

Can I open my current MPC projects on the MPC One+?

Yes! The MPC One+ will recognize MPC projects, programs, and sequences made with earlier versions of the software and even older MPC hardware project and program formats. The MPC will convert them to modern formats upon importing.  

What is a CV/Gate output used for?

CV/Gate signals are similar to a standard MIDI connection in that they are responsible for transferring pitch and sequence timing data to other gear, usually modular synths or sequencers. Unlike MIDI, CV and Gate signals use simple voltages in varying ranges and lengths to control the other devices which opens a lot of possibilities for implementation. For example, modular synths will often have a CV Pitch input (deciding the pitch of the synth at any given point), but they may also have filter input to control the filter instead. The gate would tell the synth when and how long to play a note, again just like the regions in a MIDI sequence.  For more info, check out the article here.  

What is the CV range? Can all outputs be used simultaneously?

The MPC One+ uses the 0-5v range. All outputs can be used simultaneously.  

Can I transfer content directly to the internal storage?

All content will need to be stored on a thumb drive or SD card before transferring to the internal storage on the MPC One+. The Internal storage will not appear as an available drive when connected to your computer system.    

Are there any cases or bags available?

There are no plans for official MPC One+ cases at the moment, but we’re glad to hear that there is interest! In the meantime, you may be able to find an alternative third-party case/bag that meets the size requirements:

  • HxWxD in mm:
    • 272 x 272 x 53 mm 
  • HxWxD in Inches:
    • 10.7” x 10.7” x 2.1”
