Live from the NAMM floor, we’re taking a first look at the new Akai MPC Live: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Akai-Professional/MPC-Live.gc?source=4GOA4LOBA and MPC X http://www.guitarcenter.com/Akai-Professional/MPC-X.gc?source=4GOA4LOBA Visit http://www.guitarcenter.com/New-From-NAMM.gc?source=4GOA4LOBA to see even more of the new guitars, basses, pedals, amps, drums, keyboards, synths and more! 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. Learn more at http://www.guitarcenter.com/Akai-Professional/MPC-Live.gc?source=4GOA4LOBA The X is a standalone MPC featuring a beautiful, full color 10.1” multi-touch screen that flips up for easy viewing or lays back into the chassis for transport and times when you don’t need a front view of the screen (like when you’re playing pads live). It has 16 amazingly responsive, velocity and pressure sensitive RGB pads and 16 gigs of internal storage. To make it a truly untethered, computer-free experience, the X also features two USB slots that can be used for MIDI controller connectivity. Rounding out the controls are dedicated menu buttons, a large master encoder knob and 16 touch-sensitive 360º assignable pots (Q-Links) with OLED displays, perfect for precisely automating individual parameters and delivering expressively nuanced recordings.

Akai go standalone with the brand new MPC Live. the control layout is exactly the same as last year’s MPC Touch controller/interface, with a seven-inch full-colour multi-touch display, 16 backlit pads, four rotary encoders and a master encoder knob. The big difference is stand-alone operation, with 2GB of sampling RAM and 16GB of on-board storage. Users will be able to expand the device’s capacity by fitting a 2.5-inch SATA drive to the device, which also features its own built-in rechargeable li-ion battery, creating the potential for an incredibly powerful and portable music-making machine. Other features include RCA phono inputs and a ground peg for attaching a turntable, two pairs of MIDI inputs and outputs, an SD card slot and two USB 3.0 ports for thumb drives or MIDI controllers.
