  • Begin making sure Single mode works. Until then, don't try Multi mode. Check the following:
    - There's just a single one MIDI cable from MPC (Out) to Virus (In). Unplug any other cable (except power)
    - Disable Soft Thru. You don't need this.
    - Set Global Channel to 1 and do the same with MPC
    - Try setting Midi Clock to Internal Sync (I'm not shure if MPC sends MIDI Clock) and change to Sync to External until you success with internal sync.
    - Set Local to on.

  • I'd try changing the MIDI device ID from the config menu (try all available values 1-16 and omni). Local on controls the connection between the unit's keyboard and the synth engine - if it is a keyboard unit. Regarding the MIDI port check the MIDI cable with different devices, and use a vacuum cleaner to try and suck out dust that may have gathered in the port.
    Good luck.

  • Before getting to the point where you have to take several pictures showing your configuration with detail, consider that several controllers have selective MIDI output: USB or MIDI Ports. Maybe, the MPC is configured to transmit by USB and not by MIDI Port.
