The Akai Professional MPC X and thoroughbred MPC with seamlessly integrated modern conveniences optimised for use with MPC Software Version 2.0. Create beats, loop and complete tracks and provide perfect sync for your MIDI and CV equipped devices.

he Akai Professional MPC X is a standalone drum machine, sampler and music production workstation for the 21st century.


Building on decades of knowledge and technological innovation, Akai have taken everything they learned and developed during the MPC's 30 year reign as the sample workstation and created a brand new, forward thinking MPC.


MPCX. Everything you've come to expect from a flagship MPC and more. 16-velocity and pressure sensitive pads with four banks of pads, 16 q-link encoders with contextually sensitive OLED readouts, a glorious 10.1" multi-touch LED display and support for both HDD an SSD drives.


The new MPC 2.6 Software and Firmware update adds a host of new features:


  • Step Automation - You can now input, edit and view automation in the Step Sequencer. Press the Menu button and choose Step Sequencer.
  • Grid Automation - You can now input, edit and view automation in Grid Edit and Audio Edit.
  • Ableton Live Set Export - You can now export the current MPC sequence to an Ableton ALS project file.
  • MPC2.6 workflow wnhancements:


  • In Sample Record mode, after recording a sample the Keep or Discard Sample popup now has f-keys to Save or Edit your sample.
  • Within the Sequence Edit, Copy Events popup you can now copy the events from individual or multiple notes.
  • To make it easier to navigate your internal Akai/AIR effects they are now split into well-named groups.
  • TC can now be applied to all tracks. Open the TC popup and use the All Track f-key to apply the current TC settings to all MIDI tracks.
  • From within the Sequence Edit > Copy Sequence and Track Edit > Copy Track popups you can now rename the destination sequence/track.
  • The Mode Menu icons have been refreshed to improve their visual clarity.
  • In the desktop software, AIR Mini Grand now has a custom TUI layout in Program Edit.
  • Heavily optimised for MPC software 2.0, the MPCX provides a huge array of on hand controls allowing fast programming of beats, MIDI and sample navigation.


    All controls for working with the MPCX or MPC 2.0 is included on the front panel, so there's very little menu diving required to make your beats. There's 10GB of content preloaded onto the 16GB hard drive included with the MPC X. External Drives, plus SATA enabled drives are also supported.


    When it comes to hardware integration, there's four MIDI inputs, 2 MIDI outputs and a bank of CV and gate outputs for easy integration with your modular or vintage format synthesizers.


    A wide array of audio inputs for sampling and tracking are also onboard; four selectable XLR inputs with phantom power and dual instrument inputs for recording your mics and instruments. There's also the rather essential eight analogue outputs!
