Product Description

Akai MPC Live: Great Things Come in Small Packages
Lightweight. Portable. Standalone or plug-and-play. The Akai MPC Live is bringing music production centers full-circle by combining classic features and workflow with new digital technology that blends the best of both worlds. As the sibling to the powerhouse Akai MPC X, Live is a versatile, portable workstation that pumps out instantly recognizable sound, legendary swing, and fully expressive beats.

Along with the X, Akai’s new additions to the Professional MPC line are guaranteed to be on the must-have list for any serious producer. With its standalone functionality and a compact design, the MPC Live is set to command both studio and stage.

A Modern Classic
At the heart of the MPC Live design is creative control. With 16 incredibly responsive pressure- and velocity-sensitive RGB pads, the Live is the ultimate beat-oriented production machine. Even the simplest of gestures can become elaborate polyrhythmic patterns.

Featuring a full-color seven-inch multi-touch screen and improved Q-Link controls makes the production process faster and more precise than ever before. Full control over every nuance of sound is at your fingertips.

Versatility Meets Portability
The crux around which the Live was built is versatility. The MPC Live is a fusion of a studio centerpiece with a portable, durable on-stage machine that makes carryover a seamless process. And at only 5.5 pounds and a span of about 16 inches, Akai’s Live can easily be carried in a gig bag or backpack.

The real value of the MPC Live, however, is the power that it packs in such a small machine. Here are just a few of the specs that make the Live a groundbreaking production center:

  • 16 GB of built-in storage
  • 10 GB production-ready sample library
  • Two-port USB hub for MIDI controller connectivity
  • A 2.5-inch SATA drive connector
  • Rechargeable Lithium-ION battery

Simply put: never before has there been an MPC as mobile and powerful that still gives this level of boundless control.

Leave the Computer at Home
The Akai MPC Live can be either standalone or tethered to any PC or Mac. Independently, the Live runs MPC 2.0—same as your computer would—so you still get all of the software’s functionality as a standalone. Tethered as a DAW, the Live can take advantage of other recording gear and plug-ins for an even more adaptive process.
 
In preparation for the new Professional MPCs, Akai has enhanced the MPC 2.0 software with some impressive new functions, including but not limited to an improved time warp, drag-and-drop for audio and MIDI, enhanced Q-Link control, and a fresh GUI.

Unbounded Inspiration
Right out of the gate, the MPC Live hits hard and sounds great. Not only is it an unprecedented mix for stage and studio, but its production capabilities embody the best of the past, present, and future of beat-oriented machines.

Pre-installed with a robust library of studio-quality, production-ready sounds to sample, the Akai MPC Live represents a shift in the way that modern music is made. The MPC Live is poised to become both a live performance machine and studio centerpiece of choice for years to come.

It’s a whole new world!

What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this partly out of curiosity and partly fan of the genre (even though I play punk rock guitar) and this thing is a beast. It’s waaaay more powerful than I could have imagined. I’ve barely scratched the surface, but the ability to chop audio, record your own audio directly into it and tweak it, the sound libraries, the effects which are all built in - it does so much that I figured you’d have to have a PC for. I only wish there were better tutorials online, which is my only knock against this. Mostly just a bunch of user vids which are okay, but many are hard to follow.

Nothing comes close to beating this.
What is your opinion of this product?
There is nothing better on the market. The MPC Live is the PINNACLE of music production. Forget the laptop. Forget the software. This product is beautiful , sleek and unparallel to others. I was impressed to the point that I have completely changed my outlook on music production in general. That is something I thought was never possible. Get yours now.

Akai does it again!
What is your opinion of this product?
The MPC Live is packed with a ton of features! Plenty of tutorial videos available on YouTube (highly recommend taking the time). The firmware updates have made this unit even better. Stand alone capability, internal rechargeable battery, memory expansion, sampling, audio recording, and synthesizer. No regrets! The Music Production Center (MPC) is dope AF!
