Akai Professional MPC X Performance and Production Sampler Product

Overview by GAK

Akai Professional’s legendary MPC’s have been a staple in studios for the last 30 years, with a huge selection of Hip Hop’s greats using them as their workstation of choice. Often copied, but never quite replicated, the MPC is the industry standard production centre and with the new MPC X, Akai Professional has managed to improve on an already remarkable product.

Powerful Processor

Akai Professional’s flagship MPC X is built with a multicore processor (with 2GB of RAM) perfect to get the best out of the native MPC Software 2.8 (can also be run as a plugin on a PC/Mac.) There is a fantastic 10.1-inch multitouch screen and 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive MPC pads. On the front of the unit, you will also find 16 touch-sensitive assignable pots, a large master encoder know and dedicated menu buttons.

Storage For Days

The unit comes with 16GB of onboard storage, so you’ll have more space than you could ever have imagined from an MPC. There's also 10GB of premium sound content from some of the big players in the sound design world including Loopmasters and Capsun Pro Audio.

Plenty Of Connectivity

In regards to connectivity, there are a whole host of options on the back of the unit. There is a built-in 2-in/4-out interface on this model, two audio inputs and 8 configurable 1/4 inch jack outputs.

New features include Standalone functionality, CV outputs, audio track recording, clip launching and MPC 2.0.8 Software. With the new 2.0.8 software update, Akai Professional has made their MPC X Ableton Link and Bluetooth compatible.

Providing a bridge between studio production and live performance/DJing, if you’re a fan of the previous models then this is a product that you well and truly won’t want to miss out on.

    Love this machine, the timestrech / warp and non-destructive chopping is what I've wanted in one of these devices for years, they've really nailed it, if you tried the software early on and got put off give it another go it's night and day difference. You will have to prise this machine from my dead hands. ( I am still looking for the talent expansion though AKAI, hook a brother up )

  • richard reynolds

  • Stuart Dickson


    Missed my 2500 that I sold years ago. Getting back into the MPC flow is so easy with the MPC X

  • Scott McV
