Product Description

The Akai MPC X Music Production Controller represents the pinnacle in standalone music production systems. Either for music production or for live performance, the MPC X packs in an astonishing amount of features including the MPC 2.0 audio software, 50GB of premium virtual instruments, loops and sample data which can all be controlled via the plethora of pads and encoders coupled with the stunning 10-inch high definition screen. If you're serious about groundbreaking music production, then the MPC X is undoubtedly the unit for you.


Akai and modern music production go hand in hand and the MPC X means that you can produce music without having to be tied to a computer, although this is still an option should you wish to do so. The MPC X is capable of holding 16GB of internal data as well as SD, USB and SATA hard drive options to extend that, so you can be sure that you will have all of the audio data you need to create that next club classic.

The MPC X may be able to do its thing purely on its own, but its connectivity options mean that it can work as part of any existing set up. Microphone inputs with phantom power, assignable master outputs, Bluetooth, full MIDI, CSV and RCA turntable inputs mean that the MPC X can become the beating heart of your setup. All of your retro or modern equipment can be utilised alongside the MPC X so that everything can 'talk' to each other and be included in the mix.


One of the main reasons the MPC X is so powerful as a standalone instrument is because of its stunning 10-inch high definition colour touchscreen. This relays all of the information you need from the MPC 2.0 software for an organic music making experience. Surrounding the screen you have 16 Touch-capacitive Q-Links controls with OLED displays, 66 direct-access software buttons (to avoid clunky deep menu's), 16 assignable encoders, full transport controls and more.


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.

For anything that cannot be provided by the existing audio data, the MPC X can record any vocals or instruments that you wish making it more like a standalone fully kitted recording studio. Whether you choose to use the MPC X on its own, or connected to Mac, PC or any USB, MIDI or CSV equipped gear, it is sure to propel your music creation and production levels with impressive measure.
