MPC More Flexible Than Ever

Heavyweight Production Hub

The latest version of the acclaimed composition software features audio track recording, real-time audio warping, Audio and MIDI drag-and-drop, along with enhanced Q-Link™ control.

A Fully Featured DAW

MPC 2 is designed to be the ultimate platform for unrestricted creative versatility alongside must-have tools that deliver unprecedented surgical control. MPC 2 supports all 3rd Party Midi controllers with templates for all popular models. MPC has graduated from a highly acclaimed performance instrument to a fully-featured DAW.

MPC Software now includes DrumSynth, the new synthesizer drum plugin for futuristic drum sound design. Enjoy the power to sculpt and shape unique synthesized drum sounds to build the drum library of your dreams and develop advanced rhythmic textures to lift your music production into an entirely new level of creativity. In addition to DrumSynth, MPC features MIDI Multi capability - transforming MPC into the ultimate MIDI sequencing studio centerpiece.

Fuse this with deep internal MIDI routing capability across tracks, comprehensive MIDI routing to any MIDI-compatible synthesizer, drum machine or sound module, and even multitrack recording capability, and MPC forms the beating heart of any production setup, unleashing the true power of all your gear.

Incredible Sonic Tools

Based in Germany, AIR Music Technology started as Wizoo Sound Design, one of the earliest pioneers in virtual instrument technology. The AIR team is responsible for the core of much of the effects offerings in Avid’s Pro Tools® software, and also developed a suite of award-winning virtual instruments specifically for Pro Tools. Leveraging this history of excellence, AIR’s has created four exclusive new instrument plugins for MPC, as well as including their highly acclaimed suite of FX plugins.

Introducing Audio Track Recording

Outfitted with resizable faders, an adaptive channel strip, a dedicated audio track editing window, resizable waveform view and much more, MPC 2 is designed to be the ultimate platform for unrestricted creative versatility alongside must-have tools that deliver unprecedented surgical control.

Real-Time Time-Stretch and Pitch-Shifting

MPC 2 makes it easy to creatively manipulate the time and pitch of any source material: a chopped vocal in an audio track, a drum loop in a clip program or an orchestral phrase loaded into a chromatic sampler program.

New in Version 2.10

AIR Effects

For music production that pushes the boundaries of genre and style, you need more than just sounds and drum samples. AIR Stutter and Granulator are just part of the 7 additions to the AIR Insert Effects library for creating dynamic song arrangements and transition FX. Create exciting beat drops, climactic song bridges, unique sound design and more with the new AIR Insert Effects Plugins.

MPC Plugin Instruments

MPC expands the included content with 4 Plugin instruments for a diverse set of inspiring sounds. These new plugin instruments include AIR Hype: a powerful synthesizer instrument, AIR Mellotron: a faithful recreation of a legendary tape-based sampling keyboard. Based on the classic string synthesizer keyboard and WayOutWare Odyssey, AIR Solina is a faithful recreation of the all-time favourite analogue duophonic synth with added extensive control. These powerful instruments aren’t just basic emulations of iconic analogue synthesizers, but interactive sound engines with built-in processing and controls for experimenting and creating inventive sounds.

Drum & Keygroup Engine Updates

The MPC Drum Program and Keygroup engines are enhanced for more creativity and on-the-fly performance effects. Akai Sample Tail adds a natural decay to samples, eliminating abrupt chops and clip noises. Keygroup Programs have a Portamento feature for smooth note slides as well as achieving the ubiquitous 808 kick drum glide sound of contemporary music production. The Drum Programs also have 12 plugin effects, some including RingMode, BitCrush and Bass Enhancer, that are great for real-time processing and the spontaneous manipulation of drum samples.

Workflow Enhancements

MPC has its most efficient workflow ever. Finding samples is lightning fast with the new Recursive Search which digs deep into all folders and matches the search terms. With Key Detection, MPC will automatically detect the key of the imported sample, saving you time previously spent on randomly guessing and clicking piano roll notes. Browse and search through MPC Plugin Instrument presets right from the File, Media and TUI browsers for a super convenient way to find and select instrument Presets. Create and save custom effects chains with the FX Racks function, enabling quick access to frequently used audio processing plugins without interrupting the creative flow.
