In creating the MPC Touch, Akai Professional has once again established the iconic MPC series as the thought leader in music production technology.
Combining the might of a pro-level piece of production gear truly fit to carry the MPC shield with the tactile ease of use found on smartphones and tablets, the Touch is truly a workflow revolution. How producers interact with all aspects of their sound has been forever changed.
Introducing a new approach to music production with an ultra-fast and super intuitive workflow, the Touch is powered by a radiant 7” color multi-touch display. Literally grab and pinch waveforms, draw midi events, adjust envelopes, chop samples, add effects and precisely set your controls using your fingertips. Combined with the classic MPC feel, sound and vastly improved pads, the Touch embodies the best elements of our past while taking music production tech into the future.
At under one-inch thin, with low-profile controls and a brushed aluminum body, MPC Studio made to move. MPC Studio merges real MPC pads, iconic workflow, and the same MPC Software used by MPC Renaissance to give you a fully integrated portable production solution. Welcome to production anywhere. The world is now your studio.
Part pad controller, part control surface, and completely ready to rock, Akai Professional's MPD226 lets you set up your music-creation to fit the way you like to work. It starts off with the same 16 MPC pads? and it only goes uphill from there. RGB backlighting behind those pads makes it easy to color code your layout, which is especially handy when you're switching between four banks of pad assignments. On the other side of the MPD226, there are four sliders, each with an assignable button and encoder. You can use these to set up track controls, ADSR envelopes, EQs, and much more. Top it off with classic MPC Note Repeat, dedicated transport controls, and a killer software package, and the MPD226 is a creative goldmine.

Create patterns with the ribbon controller or via MIDI from your sequencer — you even get Sync I/O to connect with your Korg Monotribe or Monotron!
For anyone who prefers the hands-on experience of hardware sequencing and works with a wide variety of electronic music gear, the Arturia BeatStep Pro is a dream come true. Designed to play well with MIDI, USB, CV/Gate, and even DIN Sync platforms, the BeatStep Pro offers a combination of two independent sequencers, each with 64 steps per sequence. There's also a 16-track drum sequencer onboard with real-time recording and old-school step sequencing available. Now add on performance effects, a looper, a randomizer, and amazing tactile controls, and you can start to see the power of the BeatStep Pro.
M-Audio’s revival of the Trigger Finger proved there’s still a healthy market for generic MIDI Pad controllers, in spite of the popularity of all-in-one workstation hybrids like Maschine, Push and Akai’s own MPCs. Now Akai have refreshed all three of their MPD models with the new slimline styling we saw recently on their updated APC. As well as the physical update, the high-end model adds a built-in sequencer, and there’s a bundled software package to sweeten the deal. We had the 226 and 232 models on test.
