Akai MPC Studio II w/ Hardware & MPC2 Desktop Software DAW for Mac and PC
MPC Studio brings the total MPC experience to your computer by combining intuitive hardware control and innovative, inspiring software. Load a loop from the library, chop it into samples, lay down a beat, then play instruments over it to add more melodic textures. Add some insert effects to develop your song structure and arrangement, or to build drops and transitions. MPC Studio makes your workflow one continuous stream of non-stop creativity.
Pad performance is the top priority for any beat maker. With MPC Studio, you can be confident that every beat and note will be right on time, every time. Velocity-sensitive RGB pads mean maximum expression, whether you’re playing soft melodies or booming kick drums with coloured visuals to keep track of your velocities and pad groupings. Switch from Note to Chord Mode quickly and build out your tracks right as inspiration strikes.
Make sounds your own with the assignable Touch Strip. This fluid controller bends and shapes your sounds however you want. Make that pad synth more mysterious with a swell, control the roll of your hi-hats to fill your trap drumbeat, or make that guitar part more realistic by articulating the strum right where you need it. Assign any of the numerous knobs, sliders, and parameters to the Touch Strip for new and inventive manipulation of any track.
When you’re locked in the creative moment, the vibrant colour screen ensures you can keep your hands on the MPC Studio and your focus on the music. Whether you need to trim a waveform, browse through a plugin library, or adjust parameters on the fly, the screen gives you the visual feedback you need in a moments glance without having to stop your workflow and reach for your laptop. When it comes to your musical efficiency, every moment matters, and every move needs to help you effectively capture your ideas to finish your songs faster.
