At the heart of the AKAI PRO MPC ONE we find the same multi-core processor as the flagship instrument of the MPC series, the MPC X, cleverly integrated into a small chassis. MPC ONE offers an incredible user interaction experience, in all phases of a music production. Edit and cut swatches by interacting with your fingers on the 7 ”color multi-touch display. Act directly on the main parameters using the rotary potentiometers and buttons on the dashboard.

With AKAI Professional MPC ONE you will have all the features of the MPC series perfectly positioned to meet your usage needs, for a fluid experience, without obstacles in the realization of your musical projects. 4 rotary potentiometers and a larger data encoder are pre-mapped to manage the most used parameters. Sixteen are the pressure and dynamics sensitive pads with RBG backlighting, with a perfect and extremely expressive response. Of course, functions such as Note Repeat, Full Level, 16 Level and the transport button section are included.

MPC One will integrate seamlessly into any setup, studio and live, as it provides all the necessary connections. Connect your USB MIDI controller, external instruments (line sources, ¼ ”jacks), control your compatible MIDI instruments and your synths, racks or analog modules with CV / Gate outputs. No obstacles to interconnectivity.

Akai Professional has developed the MPC 2 software to make it usable both in standalone (without computer) and as a DAW for PC and Mac computers by configuring the instrument in controller mode. The MPC 2 software is a true complete suite for computer based music production with a 128-track sequencer, real-time time stretching, clip launch, advanced MIDI editing, compatibility with VST plug-ins, sampling, recording and audio editing with the possibility of integration into other DAWs. All with a simple and streamlined user interface. Depending on your needs, whether they are for use on stage or in the studio, with or without a computer, in the MPC 2 software you will find everything you need.
