Music Production Controller - Slim line
From the Manufacturer
Music Production Controller
Akai Pro's MPC Studio offers the most streamlined MPC experience yet. At under one-inch thin, with low-profile controls and a brushed aluminum body, it's 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.
Legendary MPC Production on Your PC or Mac
The MPC Studio Music Production Controller fuses legendary MPC production with the processing power of your computer. Its compact design is less than 1" thin and fits easily into a laptop bag or backpack. It's USB-powered with low-profile knobs and brushed aluminum body, and includes MPC Software for Mac and PC with 128-track sequencing capability. With 16 backlit genuine MPC pads, legendary MPC workflow, MPC Swing, plus four touch-sensitive knobs providing enhanced MPC software control, you'll be producing quality music in no time. A large LCD screen (360 x 96 dot graphic LCD) allows you to make tracks without having to look at your computer.
Included MPC Software
Featuring 128-track sequencing capability and up to eight pad banks--more than any other MPC ever--the included MPC Software delivers a massive 7GB+ sound library, including all the sounds of the classic MPC3000 and including 2 MPC Expansions. Instant mapping and real-time adjustment of VST plugins lets you record each track as an MPC drum program, Keygroup program, or VST/AU plugin. Use MPC Software alone as your main DAW, or use it seamlessly with your current studio as a VST, RTAS, or AU plugin.
MPC Software supports WAV, MP3, AIFF, REX, and SND, as well as samples and sequences from any MPC ever made, and it's compatible with both Mac and PC.
It's all in The Bank
7 Gigabytes. 300 Instruments. The Bank is an MPC Expansion workstation exploding with all the essential sounds of modern production including basses, leads, effects, keyboards and much, much more. It's included with MPC Studio. You also get The 809, an MPC Expansion for punchy analog drums--a full collection of classic drum machine sounds, each with its own controls for maximum tweak ability.

If you've used an MPC before, its just like riding a bike-I was back in the swing of it real quick.
Once I load my pads with the samples I want, I rarely look up at my laptop. You can actually assign samples to your pads from the hardware screen on the MPC STUDIO. There is a file browser button. I've done this a few times, but typically you'll need to get started on the laptop until you create your programs with desired samples. Once you do that you just open the software and double click on the programs (kits) you want to load, then you can do everything right from the MPC.
It does function as a generic midi controller in other DAWs, but the q-link knobs don't translate in fruity loops10 because they're touch sensitive. I haven't been able to use it as a VST for some reason, it just doesn't show up in my vst plugins through my other software programs.
You can name your sequence and tracks through the software and it instantly displays on your MPC window. On the MPC 1000 everything onboard so you name them using the scroll wheel. With this I think you have to use the software. Its faster anyway.
You can assign colors to different pads, like RED-KICK, ORANGE-TOM, GREEN-High Hat to help you as a visual reference during playback and recording.
If you're familiar with MPC and want something portable, buy this.
The included software is great, and the MPC is very quick and responsive on my dual core hp laptop with 6GB memory. This will get you off the mouse and
