Sorry to hear it didn’t work out
I would be tempted to do a clean install of the software and Akai audio drivers. (No need to remove the I-lok)
You could just try a clean install of the drivers first, but I think it would be best to remove everything and start a fresh (you might have to reactivate the software again under ilok)
I'm not sure how familiar you are with clean installs and deleting registry values, but here is what I would do.
Control panel…….uninstall Akai professional 1.05 and MPC 2.01
Go to your X86 Program folder delete the entire Akai Professional Folder.
On the search bar type %appdata%. In the roaming folder delete the entire MPC folder. In the local folder delete the entire Akai professional folder.
Next is the most important bit. Going to have to delete some registry values manually as repair apps like ccleaner won’t do this for you.
Some cautionary notes:
You will need to delete values labelled as Akai, but also inMusic, who own other brands in addition to Akai (Numak. Denon, Alesis etc). If you don’t have any other drivers installed on your pc for these products, the process will be a lot quicker as you can just delete a whole folder instead of looking for MPC live components.
Without having actually uninstalling the software myself some of the values listed below, might be removed with the initial uninstall process.
But here is what you need to check and delete.
On search bar type regedit.
HKEY Classes Root……Expand (delete the folders MPC live panel settings, MPC project, MPC Archive (right click on folder to delete)
HKEY Current User…software……delete the folder Akai and Akai professional
HKEY Local Machine…….Software……ASIO….delete the folder Akai MPC Live ASIO
HKEY Local Machine…….Software……inMusic (delete this folder)
HKEY Local Machine…….Software……Wow 6432 Mode….ASIO…..delete Akai MPC Live ASIO folder
HKEY Local Machine…….Software……Wow 6432 Mode….inMusic (delete this folder)
Close the registry. Run Ccleaner to clean up all the registry values. Empty Trash
Restart your machine
You can now try new install.
