WNAMM13: Akai Releases Slimline MPC


Akai Professional has announced the release of MPC Studio, the second of three new MPCs, announced last year, to become available in stores.

Following on the heels of MPC Renaissance, which became available in stores in September and sold out immediately, MPC Studio is Akai Professional's most streamlined MPC experience yet. At less than one inch thin with low-profile controls and a brushed aluminum body, MPC Studio is made to move, merging real MPC pads, iconic MPC workflow, and the same MPC Software used by MPC Renaissance to give producers a fully integrated portable music-making solution.

Dan Gill, Akai Professional Product Manager, told Sonic State, "Since MPC Renaissance hit stores, we've already updated, expanded, and enhanced the MPC Software three times--we're committed to making it one of the most advanced and powerful DAWs available. The bonus of The Bank and other free MPC Expansions make MPC Studio and MPC Renaissance instantly powerful production instruments right out of the box."

In addition to MPC Software, with purchase of MPC Studio, customers will get The Bank--a 7-gigabyte 300-instrument virtual workstation exploding with all the essential sounds of modern production, including basses, leads, effects, keyboards, and more--plus The 809, an MPC Expansion full of classic and punchy analog drums.


Pricing and Availability:

MPC Studio is now available from music instrument retailers with an MSRP of $999 and an estimated street price of $599.
