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.

Best production tool hands down.
What is your opinion of this product?
This product is great! I am a guitar player and I wanted to do some production work on my own instead of always relying and the band to come over. It dose require some studying of the unit if your not familiar with it already. But once you understand the workings of the MPC wow! It’s such a powerful tool and it has more than enough sounds already installed in it you really don’t have to look far at all and it mobile it’s simply incredible. But the MPC live is two thumps up in my book and well worth the money! And AMS has such a great buying options for there customers with the 12 month payment option interest free, you can’t go wrong.. I highly recommend it!

“Truly, my studio’s new BEST friend!”
What is your opinion of this product?
Wow, wow, WOW!!! The MPC LIVE is by far the most treasured piece of gear in my studio now! The sounds are so crisp, clear, and bangin’!!! Plus, with 6 hours of battery life possible, I LOVE that I can throw it in my backpack, work on a new beat on the bus, or the park, or at the coffee shop- then off to a couple hour gig! It’s CRAZY how easy it is to make truly pro-sounding tracks using this tool... Thank you, Akai- I’m in love with my MPC LIVE!

Changed the way I view standalone hardware
What is your opinion of this product?
The MPC Live is my first ever piece of standalone equipment. I was a true software producer until this was added to my arsenal. The MPC will always be part of my studio.

I love this thing, buuuut
What is your opinion of this product?
Not geared for live sessions. One thing I hate is that you can't set the metronome to play out of headphones only like on something such as the boss rc-505, so if you want to perform something organic from scratch without backtracking, the audience will hear the metronome, lol. This thing is awesome though and akai continues to update the firmware.

MPC Live is my Best Friend!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
If you're serious about making music and/or producing beats, this is the machine that you must have with you at all times! Previously I had to carry a heavy 88 key roland fathom X8 workstation keyboard to my gigs when I had to play for an artist that I had their music stored on my keyboard. The roland made it easy for me to transition live in between the tracks that I made without missing a beat. But now that I have the MPC Live it feels like I have a weight lifted off of my shoulder, literally! Lol. Now I can carry a light 61 key board with my mpc live and have even more versatility and than I had before. This machine is incredible with all the production that you can do and that's without the assistance of a computer. It stands alone all by its self! It's my new best friend and can be yours too!!! Thanks American Musical! You guys are the greatest music store to buy equipment from!!!

Back in Full Swing
What is your opinion of this product?
Being a veteran on the MPCs, I’m immensely satisfied having to use the MPC Live on the computer but the sell point for me is the portability to take this anywhere I go and use as a stand-alone with my portable synths (volca or boutique) and pound out beats. The editing using the touch screen and Q link knobs is a time saver for me too.
