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.

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!

This sampler is amazing
What is your opinion of this product?
I love the mpc live because it stands alone in every category. After doing my research I learned that it’s what I’ve been looking for and what Ive been needing for years.The mpc live is the future.If you are into hardware samplers/keyboard workstations and have a better workflow without a computer,the mpc live is for you.I bought the mpc live solely because it allows me to connect a keyboard to it to play synths pianos etc...I am a keyboardist/producer so most of my work is done with keyboards. So, the combination of one of the most powerful sampler(mpc live) and a keyboard makes my creativity influential,spontaneous, powerful and unstoppable on the big stage and in the studio. Well worth the money. It also is portable with battery life of 4 hours fully charge.Not a big fan of computers on stage, they can glitch,freeze, or have connection issues.With the mpc live you are in total control. I personally like to trigger keys for samples and now I can but ,on a much powerful product.

Mind....Blown
What is your opinion of this product?
I'm a long time musician, and have always wanted to own an MPC, but they have always been out of my price range, starting at $3000+. My friend told me about the Live and demoed it for me. I was amazed. I got online and bought one immediately. Here's the thing. It can be a stand alone unit, meaning that's all you need to take with you for music production. That and a pair of headphone. I put an SSD drive in, and I have a thumb drive and SD card as backup. Tons of storage for whatever I want to do. AND, there's a rechargeable battery IN THIS BABY! 6 HOURS OF CHORD FREE MUSIC PRODUCTION!! Whoa! I would buy two but one is more than enough. The interface is amazing and you can get right into working on music. I'm running out of review space so I'll just say check out the demo video, or buy it. You won't be disappointed. Music production has never been so easy! Akai laid it out for us. With the low price it can't be beat!
