While you’re in the market for a MPC, you’d rather dial down the features and equipment for a smaller and simpler design. Built with 16 touch and velocity sensitive pads, a slim form factor, and an integrated cover that fully protects your instrument, the Akai Pro MPC Element is small enough to slip in your backpack and powerful enough to open you up to a whole new world of sound.
By using the included programming software, you can assign samples, sounds, plug-ins, and specialized program sets to the 16 velocity adjustable pads, letting you designate up to 128 sounds and samples across the eight pad banks. For a bonus, you can also assign four insert effects per pad. If you’re operating in sequencing mode, the pads are backlit to show the progress of your sequence, making it easy to alter tracks on the fly.
Instead of dealing with after-market software and clicking through endless tabs for every track, the Element features legendary MPC workflow that lets you get the most out of your creativity in one integrated interface. That said, if you’d prefer to stick to Ableton or Logic Pro, the Element is completely compatible.
