Please press the ERASE button until a main screen is displayed.
If this operation is not performed, MPC may freeze or it may crash.
When the reaction of a DATA wheel is slow or cannot change the value of one step, please change the set of the "Wheel " field of OTHER.

If OS is changed, this set will return to default setting"New type".
Refer to video of user offer.
