Overview

At under one-inch thin, with low-profile controls and a brushed aluminum body, MPC Studio 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. Welcome to production anywhere. The world is now your studio.

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.

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 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 plug-in. 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 included MPC Expansion workstation loaded with essential sounds of modern production including basses, leads, effects, keyboards and much more. 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.

      The product is very useful. There are plenty of online videos on using the product. However the provide documentation was obscure after I week I got the idea of how to use it.

          Its actually pretty cool looking and has a nice build. I'm not an MPC user so I'm new to this... I've been playing around on it and I must say I'm impressed with the manipulation of the sampling editing.

            Comments about Akai Professional MPC Studio Black:

            I'm extremely disappointed with this purchase. I purchased it on the 4th of July 2017 and I have yet to get help from Akai's tech support. I had a problem with the installation of the bank and they have been ignoring me. I think that an installation CD would help, but instead you get an email with the links that don't work
