New in MPC
MPC returns, armed with reimagined functionality and retaining the core workflow ethos that defined it’s iconic reputation. So what’s new in MPC? Standalone functionality, audio track recording, clip launching, real-time time- stretching and pitch-shifting MPC Software 2.0 and much more. This isn’t just the next generation of MPCs, this is a turning point in self-contained creative capability.

High Definition Multi-Touch Control
Discover MPC and experience unrestricted tactile control at your fingertips. It’s capacitive multi-touch full colour screen and adaptive UI seamlessly adapts to MPCs menu functions in crystal clear high-definition - grab, pinch & edit waveforms, draw MIDI events, program the step sequencer, browse & load samples, apply FX, precisely set critical mix controls and much more, all using the intuitive ease-of-use found on smartphones and tablets.
