MPC Software 2.3

AKAI MPC 2.3 Update

The long awaited 2.3 update for MPC is finally upon us. This is the big one we have all been waiting for and Akai have more than delivered! We now have 3 plugin softsynths created in partnership with Air Music Technology who have a long history of making some pretty awesome instruments and effects.

There is also an autosampler! This is a game changer for the MPC Live and MPC X as creating multi-sampled instrument patches from hardware was a bit of a painful process involving a pc and some 3rd party software for the easiest workflow...this is not the case anymore! The auto-sampler is fully integrated into the MPC standalone mode with easy to configure options.

Another highly requested feature is the arpeggiator, again, Akai have delivered with a very nice arpreggiator that gives you a wealth of different options. There are more features like crossfade looping and enhanced Q-Link functionality!

Check out the video from ADSR's Mike Acosta for an indepth look at all the new features!

The Akai Professional MPC line is intrinsically linked to the evolution of modern music, infact it would be fair to say that the three letters hardly need an introduction to anyone who's spent any time in the pro audio world since the late '80s! The full-featured production and performance powerhouses have helped spawn multiple genres and advanced others - a design often replicated but never surpassed. The Music Production Centre has been the driving force for countless users with a hands-on, tactile interface and intuitive workflow that has set the standard for the industry. Don't settle for an imitation, take control of your creative output with MPC.
