Akai Standalone Sampler/Control Surface, MPC X

NEW IN MPC
MPC returns, armed with reimagined functionality and retaining the core workflow ethos that defined it’s iconic reputation. So what’s new in MPC X? Standalone functionality, CV outputs, audio track recording, clip launching, MPC 2.0 Software and much more. This isn’t just the next generation of MPCs, this is a turning point in self-contained creative capability.

IMMERSIVE PRODUCTION
MPC doesn’t just complement your workflow, it enhances it. With MPC X the convenience of touchscreen control, full-featured functionality and standalone capability fuses with Akai Professional’s iconic velocity- and pressure-sensitive RGB 16-pad format. The result? Immersive, self-contained production and performance solutions meticulously designed for unprecedented creative expression without limitation.

CONTROL EVOLVED
Precision engineered to enhance your creative flow, the MPC X’s arsenal of hardware controls redefines the studio centrepiece standard. 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive backlit RGB pads provide iconic MPC response, faithfully capturing every subtle nuance of your performance. 16 touch-sensitive 360-degree Q-Links with OLED displays seamlessly map to critical parameters, with user-selectable mapping functionality for a completely personalised experience. 66 buttons provide direct hardware access to all aspects of the user interface, catering for any workflow preference.

STUDIO CENTREPIECE
The MPC X forms the beating heart of your creativity, offering harmonious integration with your existing setup thanks to an ensemble of studio-grade inputs and outputs. 8 balanced outputs connect to virtually all peripheral studio equipment for uncompromised signal routing and monitoring capability. Plus, a combination of XLR, ¼-inch high-Z, balanced ¼-inch, and Turntable RCA inputs, plus switchable phantom power (+48v), direct hardware monitoring, interactive VU metering, dual ¼-inch & 1/8-inch headphone outputs and pristine high-resolution capture ensures rapid assimilation into your setup and an unprecedented production experience.

RADIANT HIGH-DEFINITION DISPLAY
Centre-stage on the MPC X is a high-definition, full colour 10.1-inch fully articulating multi-touch display, conveniently outfitted with 8 lockable positions. Immersive yourself in a world of intuitive gesture based control of your production on the largest screen ever fitted to an MPC to date.

FULLY-LOADED. VERSATILE
Whether you prefer working in the box or dream of a truly unleashed production experience, MPC X effortlessly transforms from a formidable standalone production centre to a high-powered MIDI controller. Natively powering MPC in standalone mode is MPC 2.0 Software, fully loaded with critical in-demand
production and performance capability. Connect MPC X to your Mac or PC, load MPC software as a plugin into your DAW of choice - or as a standalone application - and harness the undeniable power and creative scope of VST-instruments and effects. Whatever your preference, MPC X redefines expectations for control, seamlessly accommodating the most stringent of needs with ease.
