Akai Pro Updates MPC Software, Adds 64-bit Support

Akai Pro Updates MPC Software, Adds 64-bit Support | Hot Topic | Scoop.it

"Akai Professional has announced the release of a new version (v1.4) of its MPC Software for the MPC Renaissance and MPC Studio controllers."


Via Nolan Bolusan
Jeremy Hill's insight:

The New Akai Renaissance is one of the top production tools in the music industry.  With the new technology added, this is going to be a production tool a lot of producers in the industry are going to have use especially with the ability to see what your producing on a computer screen.  

 

Pros - Software is versatile, Built-in 96kHz, two-in four-out audio interface, at the hit of a button has the ability to use three older models of previous MPC's at the hit of a button.

 

Cons - Doesn't work well when used as AU/VST plug-in. Missing hardware waveform zooming and beat roll. Also the transport controls don't work on the hardware when the MPC is used as a plug-in in Logic.

Akai Tries for MPC Renaissance with Controllers, New Software

Akai Tries for MPC Renaissance with Controllers, New Software | Hot Topic | Scoop.it
Looks like an MPC. Should sound like an MPC. But for the first time, something called “MPC” that relies on your computer. Good news or bad news? We’ll know soon enough.
The MPC name and MPC legend are as big as ever.

Jeremy Hill's insight:

One thing about the Akai MPC Renaissance, you have to have a computer for it to be functional.  Unlike the older versions, a computer is a must.  Step ya game up!

Akai has never went this far before with the MPC and its not really known wether its successful or not yet but we can say that as a company of a new era its important to investigate the latest in technology. I think the success of the MPC speaks for it self but as with any new technology there will be competition.

Akai MPC Renaissance

Akai MPC Renaissance | Hot Topic | Scoop.it

"...the new MPC flagship product - the MPC Renaissance.

 

Essentially, its an MPC control surface which takes all the best bits of the various MPC products - as specified by numerous pro users during a lengthy consultation process. This is combined with the software component which takes care of the audio and sequencing. The hardware also acts as a 4-channel USB audio interface allowing direct sampling via the combi or phono input - yes folks turntable sampling is supported."

Jeremy Hill's insight:

The Akai MPC Renaissance is a must have production tool to have in a studio.  With all it's new features, I recommend it to every producer.

I think it is awesome that Akai finally brought the old MPC that we know and love to the digital recording world. They blend the old MPC pads with the new DAW seamlessly, and it is a beautiful marriage.
