Product Description

Akai Professional MPC ONE Overview

Building upon the success of the MPC X and MPC Live, the Akai Professional MPC One
is a complete standalone music production workstation well suited for
producers, beatmakers, drummers, electronic musicians, and more. The
compact MPC One features an integrated sampler, sequencer, 7″
touchscreen, 16 velocity-sensitive RGB-backlit pads, and 4 endless
encoder Q-Link controls. Included as standard are network connectivity
and Splice integration, so producers can access the sounds they need.

MPC One incorporates the same powerful quad-core ARM Cortex processor
as the MPC X, along with 2GB of RAM, and 4GB of storage to power the MPC
2.0 software without the need to connect to a host computer. What’s
more, the unit can operate in Control Mode, which further expands the
functionality by connecting to a computer, allowing you to operate the
same MPC 2.0 standalone software as a plugin in your favorite DAW. The
MPC 2.0 software has added some powerful features including audio track
recording, real-time time-stretching (audio warping), pitch-shifting,
audio and MIDI drag-and-drop, clip program mode for clip-launching, an
updated mixer layout with advanced signal routing, and enhanced Q-Link

The MPC One comes loaded with 2GB of new drum sample
& loop collections, curated specifically for this new hardware,
delivering a library full of hard-hitting, dynamic drum sounds, sure to
impress the most demanding creators. Also included are the signature
synth engines Electric, Tubesynth and Bassline, as well as the
world-class AIR FX for mixing and mastering. Content can easily be
uploaded and/or recorded to the full-sized SD card or USB thumb drives.

full-color 7″ multi-touch screen offers quick and easy visual feedback
and editing capabilities. View samples with pinch-zoom, trim start and
end times, and adjust and process samples on the fly. The XYFX allow you
to control multiple effect parameters simultaneously, while the
sequencer and mix page make short work of entering/deleting notes,
editing values, and adjusting mix parameters.

The rear panel
offers a comprehensive set of inputs and outputs including two 1/4″
inputs and two line-level 1/4″ outputs, while the MIDI I/O includes one
MIDI input and one MIDI output on full-sized 5-pin DIN connectors. Four
fully configurable 3.5mm CV/Gate outputs are available for connecting
and controlling analog synthesizers. Connect a computer via the USB
Type-B connection, and use the USB Type-A connector for the integration
of MIDI controllers to further expand your MIDI inputs. A dedicated
3.5mm headphone output is available for monitoring the Master L/R
outputs. The MPC One is powered by the included power adapter and ships
with a USB cable.
