For music creators who never want to miss a moment of inspiration, here is MPC Live II. This autonomous, battery-powered production unit allows you to enjoy the full MPC experience, wherever you are.

MPC Live II is the first MPC equipped with an integrated stereo monitor speaker system. Designed from the ground up, this dual tweeter-woofer system delivers impeccable clarity to keep your ideas flowing throughout the creative process.

Every Bit of an MPC

Under the hood, the MPC Live II includes the same multi-core processor as the MPC X, with all the pillars you demand from a modern MPC. Take control of your production with Akai Professional's iconic 16-pad format. Sequence, edit and cut samples on the bright 7-inch color touchscreen. Shape your ideas with four capacitive touch buttons and dive into all the essential functions with an arsenal of dedicated buttons, carefully arranged for the ultimate workflow. Backed by a super-intuitive user interface and packed with everything you demand for professional production, MPC Live II is focused on your creativity.

A mobile workhorse

As a producer, you demand versatility. MPC Live II prepares you for any situation. With three 1/4-inch TRS stereo 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 to get the most out of all your studio equipment. Control your modular equipment on stage and take your performance in a new direction; grab a patch cable and easily plug in your studio gear; plug in your USB MIDI controllers, choose a synthesizer engine, and immerse yourself in a world of immersive, expressive performance; connect some turntables and inject some old-school sampling flavor into your production. Your daily activities as a producer may take you from different studio spaces to the stage and back again. Whatever the demands of your day, you can count on MPC Live II to deliver the goods.

The central command of your studio

The next generation of Akai Professional's standalone, multi-core MPC series features MIDI Multi, which transforms the MPC into a centerpiece of a MIDI sequencing studio. You can now simultaneously connect and route all of your studio's MIDI equipment, including compatible USB keyboards, MIDI interfaces, and USB to CV modules, increasing your input/output capability. With internal MIDI routing capability between tracks, full MIDI routing to any MIDI-compatible synthesizer, drum machine, or sound module, and even multi-track recording capability, MPC Live II forms the heart of any setup production, unleashing the true power of all your hardware.

MPC 2 Software

Akai Professional's reimagined MPC 2 software drives MPC Live II in both standalone and controller modes. It is a cutting-edge production suite combining real-time time stretching, clip launch functionality, built-in synthesizer engines, VST compatibility in controller mode, operation as a standalone application on Mac and PC, seamless DAW integration and much more. Whether you're looking to break free from computer-based music production or are looking for the ideal controller for digital audio-centric creative exploration, MPC 2 software delivers the ultimate in adaptive creative versatility.

Ableton Live Integration

MPC Live II comes pre-mapped to Ableton Live for instant performance and production. Take complete control of launching Live clips, mixer and instrument macros wirelessly via the Ableton Link Wi-Fi network or over ethernet using a USB to ethernet adapter. By combining MPC's production prowess, critically acclaimed synthesizer engines, and a fast, intuitive workflow with Ableton Live, any creative endeavor is literally at your fingertips.

Storage and Connectivity

The MPC Live II comes ready to use with 16GB internal Micro SD memory. For producers who want to add a personal touch to their production, MPC Live II features a built-in SD card slot , a user-expandable 2.5-inch SATA drive bay for connecting SSDs or hard drives, and a USB input for immediate access to your own sample libraries.
