Akai Standalone Sampler/Control Surface, MPC X

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.

New firmware delivers control of Ableton Live’s session view, mixer, effects and devices via Wi-Fi for Force, MPC X and MPC Live.

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.

This is the update you have been waiting for! Akai Professional is proud to announce Force firmware 3.0.4 and MPC firmware 2.7 that include the highly-anticipated Ableton Live Control.Force and MPC now come pre-mapped for deep tactile control of Ableton Live clip launching, mixer panel and of course, Ableton devices. Ableton Live Control functions wirelessly over a Wi-Fi network via Ableton Link. This is an unparalleled level of Ableton integration from a standalone device. Ableton Live Control mode has been carefully designed to enable users to instantly switch between standalone operation and Live Control mode without ever stopping playback from either platform.

With Ableton Control integration, Akai Professional has bridged the standalone and Ableton worlds seamlessly for an unprecedented amount of creative power. The ingenuity of Force and MPC plugin instruments Bassline and Tube Synth, pristine sound processing FX and stellar sample manipulation algorithms, paired with Ableton and the power of clip launching is here and ready for musical ambitions of the most adventurous kind.
