    A true MPC workstation with total hardware and software integration

    Akai's MPC Studio is far more than just an 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 your best beats and electronic grooves, with over 100 instruments and effects built right into its workflow. If you love the workflow of working with real MPC hardware, and want to combine it with the flexibility and processing power of your studio computer, Music Experience highly recommends the MPC Studio.

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

    The MPC Studio controller fits easily in your laptop case, letting you take your beat-creation studio anywhere. Its compact body houses 16 backlit velocity-sensitive pads, a touch strip controller, plus a full set of MPC controls, with visual feedback provided by a 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 MPC2 music production software to make it a comprehensive music production system. This software music production environment gives you a 128-track sequencer and phenomenal sample-manipulation options with support for WAV, MP3, AIFF, REX, SND, and many other audio file formats. 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 plug-ins and use them right along with your samples. You can even use MPC Studio as a virtual instrument in your favorite DAW!

      What Akai Professional Says...

      MPC Studio brings the total MPC experience to your computer by combining intuitive hardware control and innovative, inspiring software. Load a loop from the library, chop it into samples, lay down a beat, then play instruments over it to add more melodic textures. Add some insert effects to develop your song structure and arrangement, or to build drops and transitions. MPC Studio makes your workflow one continuous stream of non-stop creativity.

      Premium Pads For Perfect Production

      Pad performance is the top priority for any beat maker. With MPC Studio, you can be confident that every beat and note will be right on time, every time. Velocity-sensitive RGB pads mean maximum expression, whether you’re playing soft melodies or booming kick drums with colored visuals to keep track of your velocities and pad groupings. Switch from Note to Chord Mode quickly and build out your tracks right as inspiration strikes.

      Assignable Touch Strip Control And Expression

      Make sounds your own with the assignable Touch Strip. This fluid controller bends and shapes your sounds however you want. Make that pad synth more mysterious with a swell, control the roll of your hi-hats to fill your trap drumbeat, or make that guitar part more realistic by articulating the strum right where you need it. Assign any of the numerous knobs, sliders, and parameters to the Touch Strip for new and inventive manipulation of any track.

      Color Screen For Vibrant Feedback

      When you’re locked in the creative moment, the vibrant color screen ensures you can keep your hands on the MPC Studio and your focus on the music. Whether you need to trim a waveform, browse through a plugin library, or adjust parameters on the fly, the screen gives you the visual feedback you need in a moments glance without having to stop your workflow and reach for your laptop. When it comes to your musical efficiency, every moment matters, and every move needs to help you effectively capture your ideas to finish your songs faster.

      World-Class Plugins & Effects
