Akai MPC X
The Akai MPC X is the all new flagship stand alone MPC production station for producers, hip hop artists, and more. The new MPC has been re-designed to encorporate the latest technology while still remaining true to the MPC blood-line. These new features include; full colour 10.1” multi-touch screen, 16 amazingly responsive velocity and pressure sensitive RGB pads, 16 assignable rotary encoders, and to top it off packs 16 gigs of internal storage for all your sounds and samples.
Powering the mighty X is MPC 2.0, Akai Professional’s new update to the MPC software. Capable of running natively on the MPC X in standalone mode, MPC 2.0 can also be run from a Mac or PC with the X tethered to a computer. A number of major workflow enhancements have been added to 2.0, including: audio track recording, an improved time warp algorithm, refined Q-Link control, audio and MIDI drag and drop – all appearing on a new graphical interface. Future versions will support Ableton Link.
The MPC has a well-earned reputation for sounds that hit hard and sound great, right out of the box. The X is no exception. 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 our own radio-ready kits. Want to incorporate your own samples without tethering to a computer? The X features a 2.5” SATA drive connector providing more storage via external hard drive – SSD or HDD. Additionally, sounds can be accessed and added to the library using the built-in SD Card slot or the USB thumb drive.
