The Akai MPC Live’s unmatched versatility conquers the dividing line between production and performance. Fusing a road-tested compact footprint, full-featured creative capability and an on-board rechargeable Lithium-ION battery, MPC Live presents a refined workflow that inspires immediate creative results whist seamlessly revolutionising the create anywhere philosophy.

Discover MPC and experience unrestricted tactile control at your fingertips. It’s capacitive 7-inch multi-touch full colour screen and adaptive UI seamlessly adapts to MPCs menu functions in crystal clear high-definition - grab, pinch & edit waveforms, draw MIDI events, program the step sequencer, browse & load samples, apply FX, precisely set critical mix controls and much more, all using the intuitive ease-of-use found on smartphones and tablets.

Whether you prefer working in the box or dream of a truly unleashed production experience, the Akai MPC Live 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 Live 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 Live redefines expectations for control, seamlessly accommodating the most stringent of needs with ease.

Refine your flow and spark your creativity with Clip Programs in MPC 2.0 Software. Armed with an advanced real-time time-stretching / pitch shifting algorithm, and supporting Toggle/One Shot launch modes, loop-specific RGB pad colour configurations, automatic BPM detection and automatic tempo lock, MPC 2.0 Software’s clip launch functionality grants a truly inspirational production platform and an unleashed performance experience.

Now in MPC, cutting-edge audio editing capability fuses with intuitive gesture-based touch control thanks to an all-new suite of audio editing essentials. Combining Pointer, Eraser, Audition, Marquee and Scissors tools, seamlessly edit audio with the rapid, tactile ease-of-use found on smartphones and tablets. Take total-command of your audio with MPC 2.0 Software’s array of processing options – including Fade In, Fade Out, Reverse, Mute, Pitch Adjust and BPM Adjust – and perfectly tailor your audio to your most stringent needs.

MPC 2.0 Software’s redesigned GUI offers a vastly improved creative experience that enhances MPC’s revered workflow. Combining a reimagined mixer layout outfitted with resizable faders, an adaptive channel strip, a dedicated audio track editing window, resizable waveform view and much more, MPC 2.0 Software presents the ultimate platform for unrestricted creative versatility alongside must-have tools that deliver unprecedented surgical control.
