Akai is a name that's synonymous with modern music production and its evolution throughout the years. The Akai MPC Live Music Production Controller empowers users to make music anywhere. Taking the best of the existing MPC line-up and adding bluetooth connectivity, a re-chargeable battery and 16GB of onboard storage, you can now create and perform killer tracks wherever it suits you.
Previously with the MPC series, you have had to hookup to a computer to get the best results. While this is still a viable option the MPC Live now gives you the ability to create incredible music by using it standalone. With a built in 10GB of premium sound content and further room to store your own, you just ned to connect some headphones or amplification and you can work on your next track.
The inclusion of a re-chargeable battery also means you're free to make music on the move, no more wasted train-journeys! And the beautiful 7 inch screen makes the MPC Live incredibly easy to operate in any circumstance for navigation that will enhance your workflow.
Alongside that beautiful, functional screen you will have 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive RBG pads, 4 touch sensitive controls and a large data encoder seamlessly map to critical parameters. These controllers also work seamlessly with the included MPC 2.0 software that delivers powerful 128-track DAW capability with a total of 25GB worth of virtual instruments and audio data.
Connectivity has also been expanded with the inclusion of a total of 6 configurable outputs, headphone connectivity, RCA for turntables, 2 x MIDI In/Out, USB and Bluetooth 4.0 - so no matter what your equipment set-up, the MPC Live will fit in perfectly.
Whether you prefer working in the box or dream of a truly unleashed production experience, MPC Live effortlessly transforms from a formidable standalone production centre to a high-powered MIDI controller. The included MPC 2.0 software allows you to harness the power of instruments, samples and kits from world-class audio design companies such as Capsun Audio, MVP Loops, TOOLROOM, CR2 Records, Loopmasters and Akai themselves.
