The Beast, Unleashed
The X is a standalone MPC featuring a beautiful, full color 10.1" multi-touch screen, 16 amazingly responsive, velocity- and pressure-sensitive RGB pads and 16 gigs of internal storage. To make it a truly untethered, computer-free experience, the X also features two USB slots that can be used for MIDI controller connectivity.

Powering the X is our stellar MPC 2.0 Software, which runs natively in standalone mode. For more expressive performances, there are 16 touch-sensitive 360-degree assignable pots-perfect for precisely automating individual QLink parameters. Above each of those QLink pots is a high-resolution OLED display, detailing info for the individual parameter.

To Plug or Not to Plug
Whether you prefer to go computer-free or not, it can't be denied that there are some fantastic sounding VST instruments and effects out there. For those times when you need your favorite plug-ins, the MPC X effortlessly goes from formidable standalone to high-powered MIDI controller, explicitly designed to run the feature-rich MPC Software 2.0 in your favorite DAW. A number of new features added to 2.0 include: Audio track recording, improved time warp, enhanced Q-Link control, audio and MIDI drag and drop-all appearing on a new graphical interface.

Infinite Sounds, Unlimited Inspiration
The MPC has a well-earned reputation for sounds that hit hard and sound great, right out of the box. The X builds on that reputation. Pre-installed with 10 gigs of world-class sounds, The Vault 2.0 features samples and kits from top-notch sound design companies including Capsun Audio, MVP Loops, CR2 Records, as well as our own. Want to incorporate your own samples without tethering to a computer? The X features a 2.5" SATA drive connector providing additional storage via installation of a fixed hard drive - SSD or HDD (sold separately). Additionally, sounds can be accessed and added to the library using the built-in SD Card slot or the USB thumb drive. You can also record directly to all the aforementioned storage locations.

Above and Beyond
The MPC X has a number of additional features that make it the most powerful standalone music production tool to date. Onboard CV/Gate outputs enable the analog control of modular gear such as classic synths and drum machines. For vinyl junkies, we include two RCA phono inputs with RIAA preamp to ensure the right levels are coming into the X from your turntable. The joy of sampling vinyl is at the core of what made the classic MPC workflow legendary. Akai is staying true to their roots while simultaneously improving the sound and stability of the sampling process.

The MPC X is the pinnacle of lengthy research and development.

NEWS: 2019 March:
Software Version 2.4 available with new features:

New in MPC Software 2.4
2.3 saw standalone synth engines, now it’s time for premium mixing tools in MPC! MPC 2.4 introduces
a plethora of user-requested features and workflow enhancements, notably the addition of 28 must-
have effects from critically-acclaimed DSP gurus AIR Music Technology and a much-requested side-chain
compressor, the Mother Ducker.
The original AIR Creative FX collection has been included as part of Pro Tools® since Version 8 and is
considered the reference FX suite by some of the world’s most respected audio professionals. With MPC
2.4, this legendary suite of 16 mix essentials has been ported to MPC for immediate use with standalone
or desktop MPC software; this core range of effects has also been expanded to include 12 new plugins,
including the AIR Channel Strip and AIR Transient. Each effect has been expertly designed with ease of use
in mind and the stunning new TUI layouts take using effects inside MPC to a whole new level.
16 Classic FX from Pro Tools:

AIR Distortion:
Instantly adds colour to audio signals with multiple modes, and scalable amounts, of
AIR Enhancer:
Enhances the low and high broadband frequencies of an audio signal.
AIR Ensemble:
Applies fluid, shimmering modulation effects to the selected audio signal.
AIR Filter Gate:
Highly-acclaimed plug-in that chops an audio signal into staccato rhythmic patterns
with variable filtering, amplitude, and panning.
AIR Flanger:
Applies a short modulating delay to the selected audio signal.
AIR Freq Shift:
Shifts the audio signal’s individual frequencies, creating a unique effect.
AIR Fuzz-Wah:
Adds colour to an audio signal with various types, and varying amounts, of transistor-
like distortion.
AIR Kill EQ:
Instantly mutes the Low, Mid or High broadband frequency range independently from
an audio signal - a popular effect with DJs and is commonly heard in contemporary electronic music
AIR Lo-Fi:
Bit-crush, down-sample, clip and rectify the selected input signal.
AIR Multi-Chorus:
Applies a thick, complex Chorus effects to an audio signal.
All information subject to change

AIR Non-Linear Reverb:
Applies a special gated or reversed Reverb effect to the audio signal, creating
a synthetic, processed ambience.
AIR Phaser:
Applies a phaser to an audio signal for that much sought-after “wooshy,” “squishy” sound.
AIR Reverb:
Applies Reverb to the audio signal, creating a sense of room or space – perfect for Effect
Send inserts or Main Effects inserts.
AIR Spring Reverb:
A faithful emulation of the classic spring reverb sound.
AIR Stereo Width:
A useful plug-in that creates a wider stereo presence within the source audio.
AIR Talkbox:
Instantly add voice-like resonances to selected audio signals.
12 All-New Plugins
AIR Channel Strip: Specially written for MPC this channel strip combines multiple sections with a
super-fast interface for getting incredible results. The equalisation section features a high-pass filter,
low shelf, high shelf, and a fully parametric mid-band. The dynamics section includes AIR compressor
and gate algorithms, which are perfect for achieving hard-hitting drum sounds.
AIR Compressor:
A production mainstay. Use this Compressor to change the dynamic range of a signal
by automatically reducing its gain if it exceeds a certain level.
AIR Delay: A classic stereo delay featuring a feedback path that has a filter within it to shape the
tonality of the repeats. The Ratio and Width parameters enable you to achieve a wide range of stereo
delay effects.
AIR Diff Delay:
Delay line effect that is synchronized to the session tempo and uses an adjustable
amount of diffusion, thus emulating the dissipation of echoes in reverberant space.
AIR Filter:
Applies a filter to an incoming audio signal and then applies a selectable type of distortion
and reduction to the filtered signal.
AIR Maximizer:
A limiter specifically developed for professional mastering.
AIR Noise Gate: A classic gate effect with a dedicated denoise section to achieve a smoother gate
effect with less audible chatter.
AIR Para EQ:
Four-band parametric equaliser with four independent EQ ranges.
AIR Pitch Shifter: Transpose the pitch of incoming audio; a range of pitch shifting algorithms gives you
a variety of flavours to experiment with.
AIR Pumper:
Pumper creates a rhythmic pumping effect, similar to that of sidechain compression, with
an assignable speed, depth and envelope shape.
AIR Transient: Add more attack to drum sounds, reduce the level of reverb or increase the sustain level
a bass guitar.
AIR Tube Drive:
Emulates the sound of the signal being played through a mildly “overdriven” tube
amp, creating a warm, smooth-sounding distortion.
Also new in MPC Software 2.4 is the inclusion of the Mother Ducker and Mother Ducker Input plugins
– this much-requested pair of processors enables users to achieve side-chain ducking effects in the
MPC Standalone or desktop software. Additionally, the internal architecture of clip programs has been
significantly improved, allowing MPC users to play up to 16 programs simultaneously – when changing
tracks or changing a sequence, clips will continue to play accommodating greater flexibility in live
performance scenarios.

Für Neulinge und MPC User der ersten Stunde
Ich war zuerst skeptisch wegen des grossen Touchscreens und der Bedienelemente. Zu unrecht: hat man sich erstmals eingespielt ist alles recht übersichtlich und gut auffindbar. Die MPC X ist der Ersatz für meine 2500/4000 und ich bin mehr als zufrieden damit.

Es gibt immer noch kleine Bugs, die aber nicht gross stören. Updates kommen ca. alle 2-3 Monate und meistens werden die störenden Bugs gefixt.
