Akai MPD218 Essentials VSTI Plug In

Post by Martin501 »

Hi All

I have not long purchased the Akai MPD 218 Drum Pad and installed the Akai MPC Essentials software, all appears to be working well. However I am unable to open Essentials as a VSTI in Cubase 9.5. The Essentials VSTI appears in the Cubase Plug In Manager but nowhere to be found in VST Instruments. I have also tried deleting and re-adding the DLL and have reinstalled the software but still no joy. Does anyone else have this problem or have a solution?

Many Thanks

Hopefully this was resolved for you. If not, open the Stand alone MPC Essentials software and access help | Setup MMC Controller. That will give you the steps to get the plugin to work. Should work if you have PRO or Artist.
