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.

Versatile tool for live gigs, in the studio, and on the go!
What is your opinion of this product?
I needed a solution with features and workflow to inspire creativity in the studio, for when I need a minimal set up for live gigs, and that I could take to create on the go. This was the ticket! In the studio, if I get an idea and need to work it out real quick, I can fire this thing up and have great drum kits ready to go along with the built-in bass and synth instruments. Navigating through the many modes and onboard/user sounds is a snap with the knobs, buttons, and touchscreen in this compact but more than adequate workspace and if I want to, I can open up the MPC software with the USB connection to my computer to add even more ease to creating. For live gigs if I'm rolling solo, I can just take this unit, a guitar, and a midi controller and I can do anything out of my set, using the MPC Live to trigger tracks, parts, and as an instrument itself. On the go, its features and built-in battery hold it down for working out whole song ideas wherever, even on a plane trip like I have.

Love it
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this to update my tools as I have been away from the production game for some years. I absolutely love what Akai has done to enhance and modernize what I considered to be one of the best production peices I ever owned( (MPC 2000) Great buy!

Best money I've ever spent
What is your opinion of this product?
Akai really knocked it out of the park with the MPC live. I've owned an MPC 2000 and it was my first love but this thing is awesome.

Fun
What is your opinion of this product?
I have always used stock beats in DAWs but then decided it's time to take it to the next level - I was not disappointed. The only problem I have is that it's difficult to have a clean, high SPL instrument source (electric guitar for example) into the input without distortion, when using the looper.

I love the sounds
What is your opinion of this product?
Great sound selection. There is a bit of a learning curve and the mpc has froze up on me a few times. I wish there was a play/rewind button because having to click on the sequencer slows my work flow. I have only used it about a dozen times. As soon as I’m more familiar with all the settings I will enjoy it more. Overall a great peice of gear.
