Immerse Yourself in the Music-Making Experience MPC Live II is the first MPC with a built-in stereo studio monitoring speaker system. Designed from the ground up, this dual tweeter-woofer system delivers impeccable clarity to keep your ideas flowing through the creative process. Hear every detail of your production—rumbling 808s, the unmistakable punch of kick drums, thunderous bass lines, and a crisp, silky high-end. Need a second perspective? Turn off the built-in monitors, hook up your studio speakers and you’re set.
Every Bit an MPC Under the hood, MPC Live II includes the same multi-core processor as the MPC X, with every mainstay you demand from a modern MPC. Take compete command of your production with Akai Professional’s iconic 16-pad format. Sequence, edit and chop samples on the bright 7" touchscreen color display. Shape your ideas with four capacitive-touch knobs and dive into all critical functions with an arsenal of dedicated buttons meticulously arranged for the ultimate production workflow. Backed by an intuitive UI, and packed with everything you demand for professional production, MPC Live II is laser-focused on your creativity.
Mobile Workhorse As a producer, you demand versatility. MPC Live II primes you for any situation. With three stereo 1/4" TRS outputs (6 mono), plus phono/line level inputs, USB, MIDI, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and four TRS CV/Gate outputs, it’s simple to connect, control and get the best out of all your studio gear. Command your modular rig on stage and usher in a new direction to your performance; grab a patch cable and tap into any studio rack gear with ease; hook up your USB MIDI controllers, pick a synth engine and dive into a world of immersive, expressive performances; connect turntables and inject some old-school sampling flavor into your production. Your day-to-day producer activities may mean you go from different studio spaces to stage and back—whatever your day demands, you can count on MPC Live II to deliver the goods.
Your Studio’s Central Command MPC Live II can command all of your external MIDI gear. New to Akai Professional’s next-generation standalone, multi-core powered MPC Series is MIDI Multi capability, transforming MPC into the ultimate MIDI sequencing studio centerpiece. Now you can simultaneously connect and route all the MIDI gear in your studio, including class-compliant USB keyboards, MIDI interfaces and USB to CV modules, supercharging your I/O capability. Fuse this with deep internal MIDI routing capability across tracks, comprehensive MIDI routing to any MIDI compatible synthesizer, drum machine or sound module, and even multitrack recording capability, and MPC Live II forms the beating heart of any production setup, unleashing the true power of all your gear.
Creativity Unleashed Create wherever and whenever you’re feeling creative. Don’t hang around waiting for that spark, empower yourself with everything you need to find inspiration wherever it is. Fusing a robust, road-tested and compact build with an onboard rechargeable 6-hour lithium-ION battery, MPC Live II revolutionizes the create anywhere philosophy.
