At the 2017 NAMM Show, we got a hands-on demo of the new AKAI Pro MPCs – the MPC X & MPC Live – from MPC guru Andrew Mackay.
The new MPCs are standalone, but also can be used as controllers with your computer. They feature multi-touch screens, which streamline audio editing and also allow for Kaoss Pad style effects control. The MPC Live design is optimized for portability, while the larger MPC X features additional connectivity and controls.
