Howdy guys. I've finally figured out where I can tell my MPC to ignore any program changes sent to it over MIDI. It's on the "DRUM" tab in the program screen. My question is, how can I set it to "Program Change: IGNORE" and then save this setting so that the MPC ignores program changes by default unless I tell it not to?
It's gotten bothersome to have to go in and change this setting every time I boot the machine up!
I would try setting up your MPC to ignore program changes and then save a .ALL file in the root dir of your disk/card.
Then from the disk mode, there is a screen labled SETUP where you can specify what gets loaded on start up (APS, ALL, APS+ALL, OFF) - try setting this to ALL and restart the MPC to see if your settings get loaded up with that.
