    Product Description

    The Akai MPC series of products has been at the forefront of modern music since the MPC60 was introduced in 1988. Although the now legendary abbreviation originally stood for MIDI Production Center, it now represents Music Production Controller. The Akai MPC Touch epitomizes this title while carrying its family legacy into a new era. This is not just another sampling drum machine.

    Family Legacy
    Following in the footsteps of the MPC Renaissance, the Akai MPC Touch uses the power of your computer to generate sounds and interface with other devices. This means that sample time and storage are limited only by your computer’s available RAM and hard drive space. Not content to simply stand in the shadows of those that came before it, the MPC Touch makes its own mark by being the first MPC to sport an LCD touch screen.

    Innovation Combined with Tradition
    The Akai MPC Touch’s backlit 7" color multi-touch display allows you to manipulate waveforms, MIDI events, envelopes, samples, effects, and many other controls with your fingertips. Just pinch, grab and edit. It’s that simple…and fun!

    While the power of tactile control may be a brave new world for long-time MPC users, there are plenty of features that will make them feel right at home. The classic MPC sound is quite evident here, and the vastly improved pads still deliver that familiar MPC feel. In short, Akai has achieved a well-balanced blend of the MPC’s storied history with current technological advancements. The end result is that MPC Touch represents the very future of music production.

    The Pads
    When you think MPC, the first thing that comes to mind are those big, responsive rubber pads. The MPC Touch has 16 of them (as you’ve come to expect), and they’re all velocity and pressure sensitive. They even light up in different colors depending on how hard you play them, ranging from yellow at a low velocity to red at the highest velocity. And as if that weren’t enough, you can also customize their colors.

    The Connectors
    The MPC Touch connects to a power outlet using the supplied adapter. Use the included USB cable to connect the high-retention-force USB port to an available USB port on your computer. The Inputs and Outputs are on 1/4” TRS jacks for low noise and high fidelity, even over long cable runs. Use the Rec Vol knob to adjust the volume of the inputs, and the Master Vol knob to adjust the volume of the main outputs and the 3.5 mm Headphones output.

    The Extras
    Included with MPC Touch are over 20,000 sounds from AIR, CR2, Toolroom, MVP Loops, Sonivox and Prime Loops. Clearly this is not just a starter set, but rather a comprehensive collection of sounds and loops covering any and all musical styles. You’ll no doubt be making quality, innovative music within minutes of interfacing with your PC or Mac.

    This thing is pretty dope
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have one of these and the Maschine Studio, I use both, sometimes together, either both as plugins in Pro Tools, or usually I'll load up one or the other in standalone mode and add the other as a plugin. Honestly both are really good at what they do, and they can do most if not all of the same things for the most part, they're handled differently though. For me sampling and sample editing on the MPC is hands down the better of the two(I use my own interface not the built-in but that's also a plus). The Maschine may have an edge on sound manipulation and building out complete beats. I previously had the MPC studio, just couldn't get comfortable with it, the touch definitely opens up the software to help your workflow and help take your eyes of the computer screen. The other difference is the way swing is handled on each, and man there's still something about that MPC swing that IMO has not been duplicated by anyone else yet. The 2.0 software will open things up even more on the touch.
