    Every time I put the MPC in controller mode, it says on my computer that there is a driver error and that it’s out of date but my mpc 2.0 is all up to date. I still haven’t purchased loom and it says on Akai that I need to purchase this? Is this the reason why it won’t let me go into controller mode?
