Getting Started with MPC (Windows)

In this page we'll be getting Dubler setup with the Windows version of MPC

Firstly, make sure the Dubler app is open and check that the Dubler mic is properly connected. The Vochlea logo at the top of the application will light up green if the mic is connected.
Once this is done you can open your MPC software and navigate to Edit → Preferences
Navigate to MIDI / Sync and select Control next to Dubler in the Input Ports
Next, head to Audio and make sure your buffer size is set to 128 samples or below in order to reduce latency

IMPORTANT: In order to have the best latency performance you'll need to use an audio driver such as ASIO4ALL or a driver that comes with an audio interface. You can find out how to setup ASIO4ALL here if you do not own an audio interface. Once your audio driver is selected make sure the buffer size is the same both in MPCs audio preferences and in the drivers control panel. Select show device control panel to double check this
You can now exit the preferences.
We'll also need to make sure the track you want to control is receiving information from the correct channel in Dubler. To do this open the drop down menu for the track and make sure Midi Input Port and Midi Input Channel are both ticked
Select Dubler from the Input Port drop down
Below this you can also select the Input Channel you want to receive information from. You can change the MIDI channel allocation within Dubler, however by default:

MIDI Channel 1 receives information from the PITCH side of Dubler
MIDI Channel 10 receives information from the TRIGGERS side of Dubler

If you’re controlling drums you’ll then want to select Channel 10 as this will be your triggers. For pitched Instruments you’ll want to select Channel 1 to control via the pitch wheel
Dubler is now ready to use with MPC!
