Product Description

Touch Meets Feel

At the heart of the MPC Live is a beautiful, full color 7” multi-touch screen that puts boundless amounts of creative control at your fingertips. Simple gestures instantly become complex polyrhythmic drum patterns. Sophisticated effects automation can be crafted quickly and precisely. Your sound is at your fingertips.

Of course, banging out drum patterns is at the core of any beat-oriented production workflow. The MPC Live features 16 amazingly responsive, velocity and pressure-sensitive RGB pads, perfect for getting the full expressive range out of your kits.

Studio Centerpiece, On Stage Powerhouse

Versatility is crucial for all producers. Being able to easily pivot from creator to performer means more people have the opportunity to see and hear your music. The MPC Live makes the process of transporting your studio creations on to the stage incredibly seamless by combining the power of a production centerpiece with the portability and rugged design of an on stage workhorse.

Weighing in at just 5.5 lbs., the MPC Live is compact enough to fit into a small gig bag or backpack and light enough to effortlessly carry to the gig or another studio. But what makes the MPC Live truly unprecedented is nothing so portable has ever been this powerful.

Packing 16 gigs of on-board storage, the MPC Live features numerous ways to take your beloved sample library and MPC sessions anywhere. Files can be accessed and transferred to the built on-board storage via the built-in SD card slot and/or two-port USB hub. The same USB hub can also be used for MIDI controller connectivity. If that’s not enough room to win any storage war, the MPC Live also features a 2.5” SATA drive connector providing additional storage via installation of a fixed hard drive – SSD or HDD (sold separately).

Want to cut more cords out of your life? The MPC Live can also be powered via battery (rechargeable Lithium-ION).

Standalone? Check. Battery powered? Check. Contains massive amounts of internal storage? Check. Your creative flow now knows no borders and bounds.

To Plug or Not to Plug

Whether you prefer to go computer-free or not, it can’t be denied that there are some fantastic sounding VST instruments and effects out there. For those times when you need your favorite plug-ins, the Live effortlessly goes from formidable standalone to high-powered MIDI controller, explicitly engineered to run the powerful MPC Software 2.0 on the computer in a DAW or standalone. A number of new features added to 2.0 include: Audio track recording, improved time warp, enhanced Q-Link control, audio and MIDI drag and drop—all appearing on a new graphical interface.

Infinite Sounds, Unlimited Inspiration

The MPC has a well-earned reputation for sounds that hit hard and sound great, right out of the box. The X builds on that reputation. Pre-installed with 10 gigs of world-class sounds, The Vault 2.0 features samples and kits from top-notch sound design companies including Capsun Audio, MVP Loops, CR2 Records, as well as our own.
