When Akai Pro released the iMPC iPad music production center, a lot of Synthtopia readers were left wanting more. The app was fun, but it didn’t offer the full capabilities of even old-school MPCs.
It looks like that may soon change. Akai today teased this image of iMPC Pro, a new software MPC for the iPad that they say promises ’64 tracks of heavyweight music production’.
While Akai isn’t announcing specs yet, they do say that, if you’re looking for chopping and time-stretching, “This is going to be right up your alley.”
It’s iPad only for now (no iPhone). Akai says that the additional screen real estate is needed for usability when editing and chopping. No plans for an Android version have been made announced.
Full specifications are to come next week. iMPC Pro will be released mid-Spring.
