The return of a legend.
Since the release of the MPC 60 (Music Production Center) in the late 1980s, the MPC line developed by Akai Professional has literally left its mark on entire generations of young producers and beat-makers, thanks to its consistently innovative, intuitive, and high-quality design. The venerable MPC Studio, which appeared in 2013, has been no exception. Akai Professional is proud to present the heir to this iconic model with this MPC Studio II, with refined lines, and revised features to satisfy modern producers while retaining that iconic intuitive MPC workflow.
High-end pads for perfect production.
At the heart of this new MPC Studio, we find unsurprisingly the 16 RGB backlit, pressure-sensitive, and surgically-pressured velocity pads common with the MPC Live and MPC X. Perfect for creating subtle melodies or thunderous drum lines, these multi-function pads offer rich, colorful visual feedback so you can immediately see pad groups and velocities.
An ever-increasing level of mastery.
In addition to the famous professional-grade performance pads, this new MPC Studio 2 gets an all-new programmable touch ribbon, perfect for energizing all your performances and giving them intense expressiveness. Add articulation to your string instruments, modulation or pitch bend to a synth, or control the Note Repeat for hi-hats, and more! The MPC Studio 2 also features a new full-color LCD display, which provides dynamic and effective visual feedback on your performance.
Flawless integration with MPC Software.
The heart of this new MPC Studio is MPC 2 Desktop Software for Mac and PC. This DAW puts at your disposal the famous workflow and iconic MPC features that have become true pillars of modern music production: precise audio sampling, perfectly timed MPC groove, swing and quantization, all with professional MIDI sequencing and arrangement. MPC Software can also be run as a VST plugin in any host DAW.
An impressive assortment of plug-ins and effects.
A true creative and production tool, the MPC Studio 2 is the ideal controller for driving virtual instruments alongside a master keyboard - such as the MPK Mini MkIII - thanks to its innovative touch ribbon and ultra-precise pads. This MPC comes with 8 instrument plug-ins that reproduce the sounds of synths, strings, leads or vintage instruments with exceptional playback quality. Far from stopping at instruments, the MPC Studio 2 also benefits from the AIR Vocal Insert Effects plug-in collection for processing vocal tracks with formidable efficiency, and high-quality effects plug-ins.
