Akai Professional introduces the new MPC Studio Music Production Controller

Akai Professional has introduced MPC Studio, a new music production controller + DAW combo for Mac & Windows.

MIDI controller meets desktop DAW to give you a pad-based workflow

The new MPC Studio, an affordable production package “for the modern music creator”. This comprises both a controller and the MPC2 DAW, which can also run as a plugin.

 MPC Studio Controller– the MPC Studio hardware is built around 16-full size pressure- and velocity-sensitive pads. These have RGB backlights and support aftertouch.

In addition, there is also an assignable touch strip that can be used to add extra expression to your performances, while visual feedback is offered by the full-color LCD display. This is designed to help you spend more time looking at the controller and less at the software, and is complemented by transport controls and locate buttons.

MPC2 Software- When used with the software, the MPC2 promises all the features that have made the MPC range popular: sampling; – groove, swing and quantize; – MIDI sequencing and arranging. Additionally, you get eight built-in plugin instrument engines, including AIR’s Hype, Mellotron and Solina and WayOutWare’s Odyssey.

Effects are covered by AIR’s Vocal Insert Effects Plugin Suite, Half Speed, Stutter and Granulator.
