Akai Professional has announced MPC Element, a new MPC unit which combines with the all-new MPC Essentials software at a groundbreaking price to make the iconic MPC music-making experience available to everyone.
Adding to their industry-leading MPC line, which includes the flagship MPC Renaissance and slimline MPC Studio controllers, Akai Professional has now introduced MPC Element along with its new software platform, MPC Essentials. With dimensions similar to popular tablet computers, MPC Element is Akai Professional’s most portable MPC yet, and it’s also the most affordable with a price of just $149.99 USD.
“This is professional music-making capability for everyone,” said Dan Gill, Product Manager, Akai Professional (@Akai_Pro).
An MPC for Everyone
MPC Element includes classic MPC Note Repeat, Swing, Full Level, 16 Level, and Tap Tempo technologies and, like MPC Renaissance and MPC Studio, MPC Element’s pads are multicolor as well as pressure- and velocity-sensitive. “It’s versatile. We’ve designed MPC Element to be as powerful as you need it to be. You can easily load your own samples, quickly make beats, or dive deep into the included sound library and get down into the details,” said Gill.
The MPC Element will be available to purchase in October 2013, priced at $149.99 USD.
