Overview

The centerpiece of the MPC Live is a full-color 7 in. multi-touch screen that puts complete creative control at your fingertips. Simple gestures become complex polyrhythmic drum patterns and sophisticated effects automation can be crafted faster and with greater precision than ever. The MPC Live features 16, velocity and pressure-sensitive RGB pads, perfect for getting the full expressive range out of your kits. Its feel is legendary and has been at the heart of digital music production for decades now. But if you haven’t programmed an MPC lately, you’re missing out on an interface whose range of expression is unmatched.

Studio Centerpiece, On-Stage Powerhouse
Being able to pivot from creator to performer means more people have the opportunity to see and hear your music. The MPC Live makes the process of transporting your studio creations on to the stage incredibly seamless by combining the power of a production centerpiece with the portability and rugged design of an on-stage workhorse.

At just 5.5 lb., MPC Live fits into a small gig bag or backpack and light enough to carry to the gig or another studio. But what makes the MPC Live truly unprecedented is nothing so portable has ever been this powerful. With 16 gigs of on-board storage, the MPC Live features numerous ways to take your sample library and MPC sessions anywhere. Files can be accessed and transferred to the built on-board storage via the built-in SD card slot and/or two-port USB hub. The same USB hub can also be used for MIDI controller connectivity.

To Plug or Not to Plug
Whether you prefer to go computer-free or not, there are some fantastic sounding VST instruments and effects out there. For those times when you need your favorite plug-ins, MPC Live effortlessly goes from formidable standalone to high-powered MIDI controller, explicitly engineered to run the powerful MPC Software 2.0 on the computer in a DAW or standalone. A number of new features added to 2.0 include: Audio track recording, improved time warp, enhanced Q-Link control, audio and MIDI drag and drop—all appearing on a new graphical interface.

Infinite Sounds, Unlimited Inspiration
The MPC has a reputation for sounds that hit hard and sound great, right out of the box. The X builds on that reputation. Pre-installed with 10 gigs of world-class sounds, The Vault 2.0 features samples and kits from top-notch sound design companies including Capsun Audio, MVP Loops, CR2 Records, as well as Akai’s own. The MPC Live is the pinnacle of lengthy research and development, detailed feedback from our passionate user base and the merging of the best technologies from across the MPC product line.
