When Akai Professional announced a return to standalone MPC’s in January it made headlines all around the world. Fast forward a few months and Akai Professional dealers Australia-wide now have the MPC Live in stock, and it’s a beast.
The MPC Live is a 100% standalone with a built-in quad-core processor running MPC Software 2.0 and a Li-Ion rechargeable battery giving you around 5-hours runtime, meaning that beatmaking has never been more exciting, powerful or portable. The new generation of MPC’s are dual purpose, acting as standalone production centres as well as capable of connecting to a computer and interfacing with MPC Software directly, or as a plug-in within your DAW of choice.
Akai are distributed in Australia through Electric Factory.
