| BlueBox was developed to facilitate creating and editing programs
for the Akai MPC1000. This solution automates some of the tedious
tasks involved with creating programs using the MPC itself. Some of
these tasks encountered were:
BlueBox implements faster ways to take care of such tasks, which will
cut down the time required to get a program setup from scratch. BlueBox
will increases your productivity by making PGM editing as smooth as
can be, and will gets you back to pad-poundin' nirvana in no time!
- setting the same mute group on more than one pad (ex: for hi-hat
- giving all pads the same envelope settings when creating multisample
- assigning samples to a range of consecutive pads, then setting
tune and MIDI trigger note for each one for multisample instrument
- load existing MPC1000 PGM files
- save edited PGM file and all associated samples to one location
- import keygroups/zones from AKP-format programs into PGM (also
works with Recycle AKPs)
- load single samples using built-in sample browser or drag/drop
one or more samples from Windows explorer windows

- playback samples in layers
- assign a sample to a range of pads (tune and MIDI trigger are
