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.

Outstanding!
What is your opinion of this product?
I started making beats with the MPC 2000XL than I switched over to the Roland MV-8800 for a few years. Then I bought the MPC Renaissance in 2014. Now that I've been using the MPC X. I am amazed by it. Akai created a beast, I love the mpc X everything, I always wanted to do and faster is a breeze with the MPC X... It arrived one day sooner than expected in great condition. Thank you American Musical Supply.

Definitely worth buying
What is your opinion of this product?
Akai did a great job with this one. I love how it sounds, the pads are soft yet solid and plenty of options to get your sounds tight. If you sample, play an instrument or rap or sing MPC X got you covered. Glad I made this purchase.

Very happy, using it to replace Live
What is your opinion of this product?
I went from 8 track reel to reel to ADATs to computer recording, but the best and most creative I had ever been was using a Forat (Linn 9000). This is the closest to that experience I've had since. While I do sometimes make electronic music, I'm a guitarist and I wanted something to arrange with that wasn't a desktop mac/PC... I have come to the conclusion that I prefer a stand-alone, dedicated unit. Pros: Self contained, no distractions. You're using the MPC, you're not checking email (or the clock, there isn't one). Just you and your work. Pads feel great, lots of I/O, feels well built for the most part, looper is cool. Workflow is great overall. Cons: When I sample using audio trigger, there's a transient at the start. Did a factory reset within two hours of owning (MPC 4k did that all the time, why I sold it) but hasn't since updating OS. Factory sounds are pretty weak IMO and taking up a lot of HD space. Effects are limited and many aren't beat sync'd (weird).

What is your opinion of this product?
I have owned the MPC 2000xl, the MPC 2000 and I have played with many other MPCs this by far is the best MPC yet! Soon as I opened it up and turn it on I was able to load up a kid and get started immediately! The capabilities with this thing are amazing and it has speeded up my workflow incredibly! I love my MPC X I wouldn't trade it for the world
