Akai MPC One: Step Up to Standalone
Akai MPC One: the ultimate standalone experience! Akai Professional’s MPC range is renowned worldwide for its impact on electronic music. MPC One, the latest in the range, is the most compact and affordable Music Production Centre yet. It’s fully standalone, with the same multi-core processor as the Akai MPC X, and despite the lower price point it certainly doesn’t compromise on features!

It comes loaded with drum hits, grooves, loops, samples and synth presets created by industry leading sound designers. If you want to get even more creative you can also load your own custom samples and craft your own sounds with the MPC One’s powerful synth engines. Then, use your sounds to make full tracks either playing in live on the 16 velocity-sensitive RGB Pads or programming in with the easy-to-use 128 track sequencer. Literally everything you need to make music is right at your fingertips with the MPC One!
