The Akai MPC X Music Production Controller represents the pinnacle in standalone music production systems. Either for music production or for live performance, the MPC X packs in an astonishing amount of features including the MPC 2.3 audio software, 50GB of premium virtual instruments, loops and sample data which can all be controlled via the plethora of pads and encoders coupled with the stunning 10-inch high definition screen. If you're serious about groundbreaking music production, then the MPC X is undoubtedly the unit for you.

Standalone power redefined

Akai and modern music production go hand in hand and the MPC X means that you can produce music without having to be tied to a computer, although this is still an option should you wish to do so. The MPC X is capable of holding 16GB of internal data as well as SD, USB and SATA hard drive options to extend that, so you can be sure that you will have all of the audio data you need to create that next club classic.

The MPC X may be able to do its thing purely on its own, but its connectivity options mean that it can work as part of an existing setup. Microphone inputs with phantom power, assignable master outputs, Bluetooth, full MIDI, CSV and RCA turntable inputs mean that the MPC X can become the beating heart of your setup. All of your retro or modern equipment can be utilised alongside the MPC X so that everything can 'talk' to each other and be included in the mix.

Masses of control

One of the main reasons the MPC X is so powerful as a standalone instrument is because of its stunning 10-inch high definition colour touchscreen. This relays all of the information you need from the MPC 2.3 software for an organic music-making experience. Surrounding the screen you have 16 Touch-capacitive Q-Links controls with OLED displays, 66 direct-access software buttons (to avoid clunky deep menu's), 16 assignable encoders, full transport controls and more.

Limitless inspiration

Whether you prefer working in the box or dream of a truly unleashed production experience, MPC Live effortlessly transforms from a formidable standalone production centre to a high-powered MIDI controller. The included MPC 2.3 software allows you to harness the power of instruments, samples and kits from world-class audio design companies such as Capsun Audio, MVP Loops, TOOLROOM, CR2 Records, Loopmasters and Akai themselves.

For anything that cannot be provided by the existing audio data, the MPC X can record any vocals or instruments that you wish making it more like a standalone fully kitted recording studio. Whether you choose to use the MPC X on its own or connected to Mac, PC or any USB, MIDI or CSV equipped gear, it is sure to propel your music creation and production levels with impressive measure.

V 2.4 Software Update

Akai Professional has just announced MPC 2.4 that introduces a plethora of user-requested features and workflow enhancements, notably the addition of 28 must-have effects from critically-acclaimed DSP gurus AIR Music Technology and a much-requested side-chain compressor, the Mother Ducker. The original AIR Creative FX collection has been included as part of Pro Tools® since Version 8 and is considered the reference FX suite by some of the world's most respected audio professionals. With MPC 2.4, this legendary suite of 16 mix essentials has been ported to MPC for immediate use with standalone or desktop MPC software; this core range of effects has also been expanded to include 12 new plugins, including the AIR Channel Strip and AIR Transient. Each effect has been expertly designed with ease of use in mind and the stunning new TUI layouts take using effects inside MPC to a whole new level.

V 2.6 Firmware Update

The Akai MPC now comes with the 2.6 firmware update, adding further functionality to an already impressive list of specs. In the latest update, you get the following additions:

  • Grid Automation - Users can now input, edit and view automation in Grid Edit and Audio Edit.
  • Step Automation - Users can now input, edit and view automation in the Step Sequencer.
  • Support for up to eight submixes in the mixer window.
  • All-New TUI layouts for Akai Vintage effects.
