If you're encountering difficulties with the multi-output option for MPC 2 within Logic Pro, follow these steps to resolve the issue:
Step 1: Ensure the Latest Version of MPC is Installed
Make sure you have the most up-to-date version of MPC installed on your system. Updates often include critical bug fixes and improvements.
Step 2: Install MPC Drivers from MPC 2 Installer
Double-check that you've installed the MPC drivers using the MPC 2 installer. This step is essential for proper integration with Logic Pro.
Step 3: Open MPC as a Standalone DAW
Before using MPC 2 as an AU instrument in Logic Pro, try opening it as a standalone DAW first. This can sometimes help with compatibility.
Step 4: Open MPC 2 as an AU Instrument in Logic
1. Launch Logic Pro.
2. Create a Software Instrument track.
3. Choose "MPC" from the list of available plugins.
Step 5: Perform an Audio Unit Reset in Logic
If the issue persists:
1. Open Logic Pro.
2. Navigate to Preferences > Audio Units Manager.
3. Find the MPC plugin in the list.
4. Select it.
5. Click the "Reset and Rescan Selection" button.
Step 6: Remove the MPC Component from the Mac's Component Folder
If you're still not seeing MPC 2 as a multi-output option, we will have to reinstall MPC. Before reinstalling MPC, remove the MPC Plugin component from your Mac's component folder:
1. Open Finder.
2. Navigate to Macintosh HD (or your system drive) > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > Components.
3. Locate the MPC Plugin component and move it to the Trash.
4. Empty the Trash to completely remove it from your system.
Step 7: Reinstall MPC
After removing the MPC Plugin component, proceed to uninstall and reinstall MPC. Sometimes, a fresh installation can resolve issues. After re-installation, please repeat steps 1-4.
Step 8: Downgrade Logic (if necessary)
As a last resort, if none of the above solutions work, consider downgrading to Logic Pro version 10.7.8 and performing a full AU wipe and reset. Some users have reported success with this method.
