Akai have announced a major firmware update for their new MPC range including the MPC Live and MPC X. The new 2.0.5 update includes Ableton Link support, time stretching and audio warping on individual drum pads, improved program and audio editing, Bluetooth MIDI compatibility and enhanced support for external storage for files. There's a new list editor for any old skool users who remember tweaking lists in DAWs!
Flattening pads allows you render your FX, treatments and layering back down to a single pad to save space and CPU, and there's lots more features too.
Akai Pro has announced the release of the MPC Live, MPC X Music Production Centre and MPC 2.0 Music Production Software.
The two new standalone players bring with them new features and new studio production, live and performance capabilities.
