The MPC Touch and included MPC software combine to create a powerful beat-making machine, incorporating all elements of the legendary MPC workflow. Using the MPC software as a plugin adds even more features and options to connect and interact with your favorite DAW. This guide walks you through everything you need to know about using the Akai Pro MPC Touch as a plug-in inside Cubase.
For Windows user's, the Cubase software is pre-configured to search for your plugins in the Steinberg folder within your Program Files on your hard drive. If you have created a custom location for your plug-ins, be sure to direct Cubase to this location by creating a new path in the plug-in manager before completing this section.
Cubase uses .xml files to map controls like the transport to their software. We have a pre-configured .xml file prepared to help you quickly the sync the MPC Touch transport with Cubase. Download the file below and follow the steps to install:
While MPC is running as a plugin inside Cubase, you can route individual MPC tracks to their own tracks in Cubase to make it easier for mixing.
And that's it! The individual audio tracks in Cubase will receive audio from the corresponding tracks in MPC.
You may have noticed that the sequences you have created within the MPC plug-in do not show up in your Cubase session. This is normal.
The sequence you have created will export within the region you select in your session.
