Akai have announced a brand new member of the MPC family, the MPC ONE is the entry level stand alone MPC with the same 7 inch touch screen, as well as the ability to work in both stand alone mode and also controller mode - when linked to the MPC software.
The same software features are available throughout the range making it just as powerful as the higher priced units.
One thing that we appreciate is the addition of 8 CV gate outputs - previously only available on the top of the range MPC X.
You also get host mode, to directly attach class compliant MIDI controllers if you need keys as well as the 16 velocity/pressure equipped pads.
We had a visit from Andy Mac who showed what the MPC ONE can do.
MPC One Hardware Features:
• Brilliant 7-inch multi-touch display
• 16 velocity-sensitive RGB pads
• 2GB RAM, 4GB onboard storage
• MIDI In/Out
• 4 TRS CV/Gate Jacks, 8 Outputs Total
• USB Flash & SD Card storage
Available imminently, priced at 639UK
