Ableton Push 2 is an instrument that puts everything you need to make music in one place—at your fingertips.
Making music is hard. To stay in the flow, you need to be able to capture your ideas quickly, and you need technology to stay out of the way. Computers make it possible for one person to create whole worlds of sound. But instruments are where inspiration comes from. Push gives you the best of everything. It’s a powerful, expressive instrument that gives you hands-on control of an unlimited palette of sounds, without needing to look at a computer
Akai’s MPC Live completely redefines the portable sampler workstation. It includes most of the key elements that make the MPC X freakishly cool, trading a share of surface-level control, the extended I/O, and some screen size for a lightweight and compact body that can run on rechargeable battery power. Like its big brother, the MPC Live actually runs the MPC 2.0 software platform for completely standalone operation, but you can also connect it to your computer. A set of 16 amazing pads, four Q-Link encoders plus a master encoder, dedicated buttons, and a 7″ multi-touch display deliver an impressive amount of control, so although this MPC is more complex than any old-school model, you’ll never find one that’s easier to learn than the MPC Live.
MPC STUDIO BLACK music-production system gives you the creative, hands-on workflow of Akai’s MPC sampling groove workstations, plus the power and flexibility only your computer can deliver. Integrating with your Mac or PC, MPC Studio combines Akai’s versatile MPC software environment with an ultra-portable MPC-style hardware controller. With MPC Studio, you get the experience of using a traditional MPC, the advanced capabilities of a DAW, and the freedom to work the way you like. Call your Sales Engineer or keep reading to find out more about the Akai MPC Studio.
The last generation of MPC gear brought the MPC legacy to the computer music-production world in a way that honored Akai’s past, but the MPC Touch rockets this technology into the future. Equipped with classic MPC pads, essential hands-on controls, and an amazing 7″ multi-touchscreen, MPC Touch lets you get your hands on your music like never before. Lay down beats in classic MPC fashion, then dive in deep with touch controls that let you chop up beats, tweak waveforms, edit MIDI, and draw out envelopes in a whole new intuitive way.
Want to start a fight? Just ask a room full of old-school beat makers what the all-time best MPC is. Go ahead — we dare you. There’s no way to even know which one was the most popular. There’s the sheer warmth that makes the original ’60 a classic collector’s piece that’s still pumping out the grooves today, but there’s also the amazing flexibility of the ‘2000/XL and the insane all-in-one features of the ‘5000. The fact is, each classic MPC is the “best” one in the eyes of one producer or another, but one thing’s for sure, Akai’s MPC X is the modern MPC all the diehards have been waiting for.
