AKAI Professional Unveils The New MPC Studio Controller

MPC Studio Beat Machine 2021


Akai Professional is proud to announce the release of MPC Studio – the new MPC Studio redefines tactile control with a hardware offering that intuitively delivers a modern and deep level of command over the music production process.

AKAI MPC Studio Hardware

This is a dedicated controller for MPC 2 desktop software featuring 16 real MPC pads, a new assignable touch strip controller, and the MPC 2 desktop software along with 10GB of new sound content.

Together with the MPC2 Desktop Software DAW for both Mac and PC, MPC Studio offers a total creation package for the serious modern beat-maker and music producer.

MPC Studio only works in conjunction with the associated software, which is of course available for both Windows and macOS. With the MPC Studio, you get a complete package with which you can create entire tracks without additional hardware or software – apart from the computer and an audio interface, of course.

Technical Specifications:

  • Pads (16) velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads, RGB-backlit (8) banks accessible via Pad Bank buttons
  • Knobs (1) 360° push encoder for display navigation and selection
  • Touch Strip (1) multi-function 5.5″ (140 mm) touch-capacitive controller with LED indicators
  • Buttons (39) LED-backlit dedicated function buttons
  • Display Full-color LCD
  • Connections (1) 1/8″ (3.5 mm) MIDI input (1) 1/8″ (3.5 mm) MIDI output (1) USB Type-B port
  • Power via USB
  • Dimensions (width x depth x height) 12.0” x 6.7” x 1.5” 305 x 171 x 37 mm
  • Weight 1.8 lbs. 0.83 kg Specifications are subject to change without notice.

The new MPC Studio appeals with its compact design, tidy layout and neat workmanship. Most will be able to do without the built-in display because it is simply too small for practical use. The associated software offers a huge range of functions that is in no way inferior to most DAWs.

The combination of hardware and software therefore also requires training and a little patience. If you get involved, you can do a lot with this small power package. Considering the price, you definitely get a very comprehensive complete solution for (mobile) music production.

Akai MPC Studio is available now and costs 299 euros.
