Product Description

MPC Studio is built to work in conjunction with your laptop or computer. Featuring highly creative software and tactile, hands-on hardware working in harmony with one another, you'll have access to Akai's world-renowned MPC workflow in one compact and seriously sleek unit. Build beats, craft melodics and enhance your tracks wherever you are!

Key Features 

  • Craft chords, notes and beats using the 16 full-size velocity and pressure sensitive RGB pads
  • Easily browse samples, tweak settings and edit waveforms using the colour LCD 
  • Make music anywhere thanks to a USB bus powered architecture 
  • Combine the MPC Studio with MIDI hardware and devices via the 3.5mm MIDI I/O
  • Includes MPC2 software for even more creative options  
  • Harness the flexibility of dynamic real-time control and change the positions of sliders, knobs and other settings with the touch strip controller
  • Contains 100+ instrument and effects plugins
  • Comes with additional loop content from F9 Audio, Decap, Mvp Loops, Snipe Young, Rawcutz and others 

Iconic Backbone 

The MPC Studio features the same (and now iconic) grid of 16 full-size velocity, pressure sensitive RGB pads present on their other models. This engineering and layout allows for extra nuance and dynamics within your beats - letting you generate everything from earth-shaking kick drums, to more delicate melodies. 

You'll be navigating through your MPC using the crisp colour display. It provides instant visual feedback, even while you're fully immersed in a session. Use it to quickly browse samples, instruments, and plugin presets, slice waveforms and change parameters in real-time. 

New Advanced Touch Strip 

A brand new assignable touch strip has been incorporated for even more expression and control over your sounds. Morphing and moulding audio has never been so fluid and fun; add a snare roll with note repeat; build atmosphere with synth swells; alter real-time effects and more. 

You can even assign settings, sliders and knobs to be controlled via the Touch Strip - ensuring even more creative options for both live performances and production. 

More Effects & Plugins 

Harness 100+ instrument and effects plugins, alongside a deep suite of drum samples, loops, instruments, sounds and more to build tracks to suit your preferred style. Insert effects plugins offer versatile arranging, mixing and editing tools powered by highly respected AIR Music Tech.

MPC2 Software 

You'll be using all of the above together with the intuitive MPC2 Software. But what is MPC2? It's an all-in-one DAW and beat-making suite packed full of possibilities. 

With 128-track sequencing, enhanced MIDI editing, VST compatibility, real-time stretching and a treasure trove of insert effects, dedicated vocal recording and production plugins and plugin instruments, there's plenty more sonic tools available here to add to your arsenal.
