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.

What is your opinion of this product?
The Akai MPC LIVE is Awesome. The new 2.4 update is we all have been waiting for and the addition mother ducker brings sidechaining to your mpc. I already own the MPCX SO I PURCHASED THE MPC LIVE. For its portability and battery life. It’s great on the move and easy to transport on the road and even through airports. I’m new to the MPC Family but learning the workflow was easy with the well thought out manual. Go ahead and pick one up and also invest in a midi keyboard like the Arturia Keylab.

An MPC2000xl ON THE ROCKS!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I used to own the 2000XL. This is such an upgrade coming from the 2000. But first off it’s completly portable: it’s battery powered; second you can install an extra hard drive. It has an SD card slot, 2 usb 3.0 port. It has 6 outputs. It’s loaded with effects and plugin instruments. It’s lightning fast and can fully work in standalone mode without ever needing a computer attaches. A++++!!!

Pretty nifty thing
What is your opinion of this product?
I've had this MPC for a few weeks and the learning curve isn't so bad. I've owned the MPC 2000 in the past, so I was familiar to the MPC workflow. This machine has 16 GB of on board storage, which is kinda small, IMHO. But, not a big deal since I've installed a 240 GB SSD onto the drive connector. It also has 2 GB of RAM which gives you about 20 minutes of sampling time. I love that it has a built in phono input so you can sample directly from a turntable. The battery life is fantastic, it can run up to 6 hours on a full charge. Plus you can take this baby anywhere and get creative. The main reason I got this MPC is that this is a standalone machine. Happy beatmaking!
