AKAI Pro shared this video overview & demo for the MPC Live – their new compact standalone music production workstation.
While the new MPC X is designed to be a flagship MPC, the MPC Live expands on the production workflow of the more compact MPC Touch by adding standalone functionality.
Here’s an overview of AKAI’s new MPC X & MPC Live platform from the 2017 NAMM Show:
At the heart of the new MPC Live is a full-color 7-inch multi-touch screen, 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive RGB pads, and a large, clickable master encoder knob.
The MPC Live is designed to be both portable and powerful, packing 2GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage, but weighing in at just 5.5 lbs. It can even run battery-powered, via the internal, rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
Details on the MPC Live are available at the AKAI Pro site.
