A true MPC workstation with total hardware and software integration

Akai's MPC Studio is far more than just a MPC-style DAW with a dedicated control surface, it's a complete music-production system that combines the best of Akai's MPC hands-on controls, the music-production workflow countless top producers swear by, and the flexibility of today's powerhouse computers. Simply put, MPC Studio is everything you need to make the best beats and electronic grooves with your computer.

Ultra-portable MPC hardware gives you amazing hands-on control anywhere

Built with knobs that are shorter than its pads, the MPC Studio controller fits easily in your laptop case, letting you take your beat-creation studio anywhere. Its super-durable brushed aluminum body houses 16 backlit genuine MPC pads, plus a full set of MPC controls and a large backlit LCD screen. In fact, the MPC Studio controller was built to give you access to every aspect of Akai's legendary MPC workflow, so you can create entire songs without ever looking at your computer screen.

Flexible sequencing and sampling software with classic MPC workflow

Akai bundled the MPC Studio with the same amazing DAW software included with the MPC Renaissance, making collaboration extremely easy. This software music-production environment gives you a 64-track sequencer and phenomenal sampling options with support for WAV, MP3, AIFF, REX, and SND files. What's more, it supports every MPC sample and sequence ever created by any other MPC. But the software included with the MPC Studio lets you do much more than you could with a traditional MPC. For instance, you can load up your favorite VST, RTAS, or AU plug-ins and use them right along with your samples. You can even use MPC Studio as a virtual instrument in your favorite DAW. The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination!

    What Akai Says...

    The MPC Studio Black is a fresh take on the top-selling original, MPC Studio. We made the Studio look cooler than ever by introducing a sleek and stylish black brushed-aluminum body. To elevate the parameter editing experience, the master encoder wheel as well as the Q-Link knobs have been raised and made larger. The 16 RGB MPC pads are now thicker and more responsive, inspiring greater expression in performance and programming.

    Legendary MPC Production on Your PC or Mac

    The Studio Black fuses legendary MPC production with the processing power of your computer. Its compact design is a minuscule 1.5” thin. Weighing in at less than two pounds, the Studio Black easily fits into a laptop bag or backpack. Its USB-powered and includes the powerful MPC Software for Mac and PC with 128-track sequencing capability. Equipped with the legendary MPC workflow, MPC Swing, plus powerful features such as “lazy” chop, you'll be producing great music in no time. A large LCD screen (360 x 96 dot graphic LCD) allows you to make tracks without having to look at your computer.

    Included MPC Software

    Featuring 128-track sequencing capability and up to eight pad banks--more than any other MPC ever—the included MPC Software delivers a massive 7GB+ sound library, including all the sounds of the classic MPC3000 and including 2 MPC Expansions. Instant mapping and real-time adjustment of VST plugins lets you record each track as an MPC drum program, Keygroup program, or VST/AU plugin. Use MPC Software alone as your main creation tool or seamlessly call it up in your favorite DAW as a VST, RTAS, or AU plugin. MPC Software supports WAV, MP3, AIFF, REX, and SND, as well as samples and sequences from any MPC ever made, and it's compatible with both Mac and PC.

    It's all in The Bank

    7 Gigabytes. 300 Instruments. The Bank is an MPC Expansion workstation exploding with all the essential sounds of modern production including basses, leads, effects, keyboards and much, much more. It's included with MPC Studio Black. You also get The 809, an MPC Expansion for punchy analog drums—a full collection of classic drum machine sounds, each with its own controls for maximum tweak ability.
