Product Expert samplers

The Akai MPC Live is a standalone sampler that lets you make beats with your fingertips. Because it is a standalone version, you do not need a computer to use the MPC. You use the MPC wherever you want thanks to the built-in battery. So you produce on the road or take the MPC to the studio or a live performance. You program rhythms and melodies on the touch-sensitive color screen. Would you prefer to drum live with your fingertips? This is possible thanks to the fast-reacting and velocity-sensitive RBG pads. Attach an instrument or record player to the sampler and record your own samples. You send MIDI data to your other equipment via the 2 MIDI outputs.
