Akai MPC Renaissance

Studio Rebirth

Functioning as a controller for your computer and including all of the software and instrument libraries you need, the Akai Pro MPC Renaissance is a versatile tool that turns any studio or stage dalliance into a professional performance. Installing the included software onto a computer or laptop grants access to 9 GB of content including a 128-note polyphonic sound engine, VST and AU plug-ins, and four virtual instrument libraries (The Bank, The Wub, The 809, and The Noise). By using the programming software and the tilting LCD screen, you can assign samples, sounds, plug-ins, and specialized program sets to the 16 velocity adjustable pads and 16 Q-link control knobs.

Additional Design Features

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. While you can easily load your MPC with virtual sounds from the included banks and through your computer, you can also plug directly into a MIDI input and add your own instrumentation to the mix. As an additional bonus, the MPC gives you the ability to plug your guitar or bass directly into the device, allowing you to track live samples without any extra hardware.
