1.) MPC Download Option & Unzipping Instructions
After downloading the zip files, unzip each ‘disk’
file and then copy the contents to a floppy disk.
In each download file there are 2 folders ‘CD_Zip’ & a ‘Floppy’ Folder. If you are using a CD or Zip Drive with the akai MPC 2000/xl, just copy these files to the disk. If you are using Floppy Disks, there are individual floppy disks already pre-configured for you to copy to each disk.
If you’re unsure how to unzip the akai mpc files. First make
sure you have winzip installed. If not, download
and install the evaluation version provided. Once
installed, right click the file you want to unzip
(trstr1_d1.zip for example) and choose the option
‘extract to folder trstr1_d1.zip’.
