Product Description

The world is now your studio with the MPC Studio. At under one-inch thin, with low-profile controls and a brushed aluminum body, it’s made to move. MPC Studio merges real MPC pads, iconic workflow, and the same MPC Software used by MPC Renaissance to give you a fully integrated portable production solution. Adding to this portability, an MPC Studio Neoprene Case is provided in the box to help keep your new controller protected! Welcome to production anywhere. MPC Studio offers the most streamlined MPC experience yet.

Legendary MPC Production on Your PC or Mac
The MPC Studio Music Production Controller fuses legendary MPC production with the processing power of your computer. Its compact design is less than 1" thin and fits easily into a laptop bag or backpack. It's USB-powered with low-profile knobs and brushed aluminum body, and includes MPC Software for Mac and PC with 128-track sequencing capability. With 16 backlit genuine MPC pads, legendary MPC workflow, MPC Swing, plus four touch-sensitive knobs providing enhanced MPC software control, you'll be producing quality music in no time. A large LCD screen (360 x 96 dot graphic LCD) allows you to make tracks without having to look at your computer.

Included MPC Software
Featuring 128-track sequencing capability and up to eight pad banks--more than any other MPC ever—the included MPC Software delivers a massive 7GB+ sound library, including all the sounds of the classic MPC3000 and including 2 MPC Expansions. Instant mapping and real-time adjustment of VST plugins lets you record each track as an MPC drum program, Keygroup program, or VST/AU plugin. Use MPC Software alone as your main DAW, or use it seamlessly with your current studio as a VST, RTAS, or AU plugin.

MPC Software supports WAV, MP3, AIFF, REX, and SND, as well as samples and sequences from any MPC ever made, and it's compatible with both Mac and PC.

It's all in The Bank
7 Gigabytes. 300 Instruments. The Bank is an MPC Expansion workstation exploding with all the essential sounds of modern production including basses, leads, effects, keyboards and much, much more. It's included with MPC Studio. You also get The 809, an MPC Expansion for punchy analog drums—a full collection of classic drum machine sounds, each with its own controls for maximum tweak ability.

Professional Go-Anywhere Capability
Designed in collaboration with dozens of working producers and musicians, MPC Studio maintains the workflow that has made the Akai Pro MPC the industry standard in music production for decades. Its built-in backlit LCD, 16 genuine MPC pads, and other powerful features give you the full MPC experience anywhere.

WELL WORTH THE MONEY

What is your opinion of this product?
I am very impressed with the Akai MPC Studio Black. If you are looking for an affordable piece of equipment that also gives you the tools to do high quality production this is the machine for you! I was very impressed with the quality of the sound library. The Drum kits, instruments and loops that come with the MPC are very useful in fact I have been able to make several tracks using just the sound library it came with! The workflow is very efficient and the learning curve to operate the unit is fairly easy. I highly recommend the MPC Studio black to both beginners and veterans.

Glitches for over 2 years
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this over 2 years and it still have many Glitches. Something as sample as exporting tracks. In the 1st version 1.6 Its was very easy to export tracks. Now its a night mare to export in to another DAW to mix. To be honest I shouldn't need another DAW to mix But its akai who is so far behind. I bought this due to the legacy of mpc but its a new day and legacies must die. Thanks for the good ol days Akai!
