Product Description

Akai MPC X: The Future of Sound
What are you looking for in an MPC? No matter what your answer is, the Akai MPC X has it. Akai has taken the best features of past and present music production centers and put them into a powerhouse machine that’s poised to become the future beat-oriented studio centerpiece.

The latest in Akai’s storied Professional MPC line, the MPC X is taking pad-based music production back to its classic roots. While recent models have been plug-and-play production centers, the X is a standalone that runs its native MPC 2.0 software and features USB slots for MIDI controller connectivity.

The Best of Both Worlds
Remember the classic standalone MPCs? Like ripped jeans and high-top sneakers, they’re making a comeback—Akai’s X is a truly unfettered experience. With updates to the Akai Professional MPC software, the X flaunts an impressive set of new functions, including an improved time warp algorithm, drag-and-drop for audio and MIDI, and enhanced Q-Link control, to name a few. And all of this is on a downright stunning full-color 10.1-inch multi-touch screen! Also, if you’re more new-school, tether it to your computer and use the MPC X as a controller on any PC or Mac.

Sweet Sixteen
The Akai MPC X seems to have a lucky number: it comes loaded with 16 GB of internal storage, and at its center are 16 velocity and pressure-sensitive RGB pads that respond to the slightest touch. Then there are—as you can guess—16 touch-sensitive Q-Links with OLED displays. Simply put: the MPC X puts you in full control and allows you to deliver the most distinct, nuanced recordings possible today. 

What is all packed into this machine?  How about:

  • Dedicated menu buttons
  • 10 GB of pre-installed Vault 2.0 production-ready samples
  • 2.5-inch SATA drive connector
  • Onboard CV/Gate outputs
  • Two RCA phono inputs
  • ...And those are just the highlights.
Bringing Back the Classics

Not only does Akai include everything you love about sampling right at your fingertips, but the X improves the stability and sound of the process, and it includes an exhaustive library of studio-worthy sounds. The MPC X is at the zenith of modern recording technology, and represents a merging of Akai’s best features from the MPC Professional lineup.

Akai has a well-earned reputation in the music industry to uphold, and the X is a jewel in its crown. By going back to their roots of what made the classic MPCs popular and incorporating new technology, software and features, Akai has created a machine that will undoubtedly become the top choice of any serious producer.

What is your opinion of this product?
I purchased the MPC-X to replace an old sequencer and sampler that retired itself. This item has replaced those, AND more. Well worth the money.

This Mpc does everything
What is your opinion of this product?
This machine is almost perfect to be honest. I use it in standalone or software mode. The audio interface sounds great for sampling. I just plug my outputs direct to the monitors and get a great sound. The grid in standalone mode is a dream. Plus it has 8 outputs. Been wishing for this since I had my Mpc 1000. I get pretty low latency also on my pc laptop with the Mpc X. And it works perfect with Pro Tools. It also has a nice selection of drum samples and you can audition each sample.The touch screen is easy to touch just like a tablet. Im loving this Mpc X. I would really suggest buying this machine if you need a standalone or controller with software.

Woohoo!
What is your opinion of this product?
Hardware sequencing, yay!!! Not only a silly piano roll editor, but also event listing! Not only touch screen, but tons of knobs and buttons. Pads and O leds! MIDI syncing to any computer or even an iPad (Auria) is tight and rock solid, both as Master and Slave, MID clock, or MTC! I mean really solid! Audio recording is high quality and effect processing power is ridiculously powerful. (Too few effect patches, though!) If I could only have one piece of gear ever, that'd be it. Tactile controls, 4 audio ins and 8 outs, two midi ins and 4 MIDI outs, USB 3, etc. I do not use it with a computer, I just use it as my central hardware sequencer with a bunch of hard synths and drum machines, etc., but I MIDI pretty much everything, for instance vocoder MODULATOR signals (VOCAL PHRASES)and its carrier MIDI, guitar effects patch changes, so everything, and it's smooth! Why 4 starts, then? All "presets" are Hip Hop and EDM nonsense, for "loopers". But you can load (or sample) whatever you need.

Finally! One extraordinary drum machine!
What is your opinion of this product?
Pound for pound the best of its kind. The MPC X is a living legend. Crisp clear drum sounds for people who demand the best and won’t settle for less! Incredible versatility for THAT specific sounding drum track! As a Freestyle Dance/Hip Hop Artist/Producer, it’s got the sound for every generation... from the 80’s/90’s to modern Hip Hop or Rock genres! A MUST for every recording studio.The top of its class! ~Ricky Villafane

Very Professional!
What is your opinion of this product?
The Akai MPC X is VERY professional! The amount of included drum kits and loops is amazing. I love how 'BIG' this sounds in my studio! I bought it in July, and still haven't completed my 'eval' of all the sounds.

Best MPC Ever!
What is your opinion of this product?
This is the mother of all MPC’s. Rock solid sequencer. No deep menu diving. There is a button for almost every function. Allows me to just focus on making music. The only drawback is the MPC Software. Akai needs help in that area...It’s not very intuitive. I use the MPCX in Standalone Mode and I couldn’t be happier.
