The MPC 2.2.1 desktop software update includes MIDI maps for popular Ableton, Arturia, Korg, M-Audio and Native Instruments controllers.

  • Insert effect parameters can now be assigned to Q-Links via Q-Link Learn
  • Q-Link Learn now displays correctly when changing Q-Link Modes
  • Q-Link Project and Program assignments created in previous MPC versions now load correctly
