Instant mapping and real-time adjustment of VST plugins lets you record each track as an MPC drum program, Keygroup program, or VST/AU plugin.

MPC Software supports WAV, MP3, AIFF, REX, and SND, as well as samples and sequences from any MPC ever made, and it's compatible with both Mac and PC.

It's All In The Bank

It's included with MPC Renaissance. You also get three additional MPC Expansions: The 809 for punchy analog drums, The Wub for electronic dance music, and The Noise for 8-bit oldschool vibe. Because MPC Renaissance utilizes the RAM and hard drive space of your computer, you have the ability to expand at will. Thanks to its tight integration with MPC Software, MPC Renaissance can be used with high-end features of computer DAWs and plugins.
