Yes, it has already leaked... But here is it officially. Standalone, rechargeable batteries, built-in monitors, CV / Gate connections and MIDI Multi functionalities - that is the new MPC LIVE II. Akai Professional today launches the new portable standalone MPC. The new MPC has built-in stereo speakers, which is very interesting for the stand-alone experience that allows you to make music anywhere. We are very curious how this sounds, Akai calls it monitoring himself.
The MPC Live II has 5 new buttons to improve the editing workflow, along with the 7-inch touch screen.
“We are relentless in our pursuit of the most comprehensive standalone music production experience,” says Dan Gill, Senior Product Manager for Akai Professional. “With every workflow consideration, every feature-set and function, we purposefully set out to create devices that are effortless conduits of the creative process. By incorporating stereo monitors, MPC Live II delivers every standalone tool producers and beatmakers need to capture inspiration wherever it strikes.”
