MPC performance and control
At the heart of the new MPC Studio are 16 full-size pressure- and velocity-sensitive pads with aftertouch and RGB backlighting. The pads optimize performance and the user’s ability to play and record notes, chords, patterns and more with sonic precision paired with an accurate visual display of velocity and pad groupings.
Plus, its new assignable touch strip can elevate any performance with an invigorating expression. Users can add articulation to a stringed instrument or add pitch bends and modulations to a synth keyboard. They can also control Note Repeat for snares, hi-hats, effects, etc. This new assignable touch strip will quickly become a producer’s favorite tool for shaping and sculpting performances and productions.
The color LCD display keeps users in their creative zone as every action creates dynamic visual feedback. It also allows users to scroll through track names, browse categories, search for plug-in instrument presets, monitor parameter values while composing effects, or cut and trim samples. The color LCD screen makes a producer’s job more efficient by keeping your eyes on the controller and focusing only on the music. Navigate sessions small and large with ease with dedicated MPC transport controls, complemented with precise and time-saving locate buttons.
Integration and inspiration of MPC software
MPC2 DAW desktop software for PC and Mac remains at the heart of the new MPC Studio system. Expect nothing less than the industry-recognized MPC workflows and functions that have been iconic of the modern music production scene, with precise audio sampling, tight MPC groove, swing and quantization, all with robust and fully professional MIDI sequencing and arrangement. MPC2 software can also be run as a VST plug-in for any host DAW, creating endless musical possibilities.
Enjoy MPC Plug-in Instruments: a collection of eight built-in plug-in instrument engines with a wide selection of inspiring sounds and textures. The Hype AIR plug-in synthesizer alone contains over 1500 world-class presets such as ambient pianos, atmospheric pads, plucked strings, and more. Besides Hype, there are other meticulous handcrafted hardware emulations such as AIR Mellotron, Solina, and WayOutWare’s Odyssey. These plugins can reproduce some of the most iconic keyboards and synth sounds with an updated GUI and controls.
Plus, the AIR Vocal Insert Effects plug-in suite lets you record, edit, and mix the perfect vocals. The collection includes the Vocal Tuner, a very powerful automatic vocal pitch correction tool; the Vocal Harmonizer, a 4-part instant harmony processor; and the Vocal Doubler, a layering and sound dubbing generator.
“We are really excited to add the new MPC Studio to the MPC line. From rhythm makers to music makers and songwriters, the MPC Studio offers a serious range of modern production tools to create, produce, mix and master any production, ”said Dan Gill, Akai Professional Senior product manager. “The value of MPC2 Desktop Software DAW, which also functions as a VST plug-in in any host DAW, makes it an incredibly robust system for any music creator. “
