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.

So Grateful!
What is your opinion of this product?
First of all shoutout to American Musical, I am so grateful to find this website so I can finally purchase equipment I wanted for years but could not afford to pay in full. The MPC touch makes chopping samples a wonderful experience, very intuitive and hands on. Still getting use to the workflow being a Native Instruments user for years but am so happy with my purchase. Well worth the money!

Made my life!
What is your opinion of this product?
MPC brought back my love for creating by putting me back in charge of the creative process and not making it too "comforting" to click beats. I love this product and will forever be a fan.

#akai is the best
What is your opinion of this product?
At first I was a little bit confused with the touch from the mpc 2500 I use to have but after a day or two I was back and this thing makes it a whole lot easier and the integration with my laptop to me is better than standalone
