Akai MPC Live 2, Standalone Battery Powered Sampler/Production Powerhouse With Touchscreen & Built-In Monitors

MPC 2.10 update (July 2021)
Prepare for MPC's biggest update ever, cementing MPC as the most powerful, feature-rich standalone production platform on the market. Fusing Class Compliant USB Audio Interface Support, 4 new synth engines and a first-ever vocal insert effects suite, MPC 2.10 heralds the next evolution of the standalone music making experience and is available as a free update to the MPC community.

MPC Live II is the first MPC with a built-in stereo monitoring system. Designed from the ground up, this dual tweeter- woofer system delivers impeccable clarity to keep your ideas flowing through the creative process. Hear every detail of your production - rumbling 808s, the unmistakable punch of kick drums, thunderous bass lines, and a crisp, silky high- end. Need a second perspective? Turn off the built-in monitors, hook up your studio speakers and you’re set.

High-powered DrumSynth Instrument Plugin delivers advanced synthesiser drum sound design to MPC and FORCE in free update.

Calling all producers, live performers and DAWless jammers, this is the update you have been waiting for! Akai Professional has just announced the add-on of DrumSynth to their MPC and FORCE lines of music production tools with MPC 2.9 and FORCE 3.0.6 firmware updates. DrumSynth joins the unparalleled power of the existing virtual instruments already included in MPC and FORCE - TUBESYNTH, BASSLINE & ELECTRIC.

Under the hood, MPC Live II includes the same multi-core processor as the MPC X, with every mainstay you demand from a modern MPC. Take complete command of your production with Akai Professional’s iconic 16-pad format. Sequence, edit and chop samples on the bright 7-inch touch screen colour display. Shape your ideas with four capacitive- touch knobs and dive into all critical functions with an arsenal of dedicated buttons meticulously arranged for the ultimate production workflow. Backed by a super-intuitive UI, and packed with everything you demand for professional production, MPC Live II singularly roots your focus on creativity.

When we say MPC Live II commands all your external MIDI gear, we mean it. New to Akai Professional’s next generation standalone, multi-core powered MPC Series is MIDI Multi capability, transforming MPC into the ultimate MIDI sequencing studio centrepiece. Now you can simultaneously connect and route all the MIDI gear in your studio, including class- compliant USB Keyboards, MIDI interfaces and USB to CV modules, supercharging your I/O capability. Fuse this with deep internal MIDI routing capability across tracks, comprehensive MIDI routing to any MIDI compatible synthesiser, drum machine or sound module, and even multitrack recording capability, and MPC Live II forms the beating heart of any production setup, unleashing the true power of all your gear.

Out the box MPC Live II ships with 16GB of internal Micro SD storage. For producers looking to add a personal touch to their production, MPC Live II features a built-in SD Card slot, a user-expandable 2.5-inch SATA drive bay for connecting SSD or HDD drives and USB thumb input for immediate access to your own sample libraries.
