Product information - AKAI Professional MPC One

Sampling Workstation

The AKAI Professional MPC One is a professional standalone sampling workstation with a 7 inch full color multi touch display and runs without computer connection. It has the familiar workflow of the MPC series and its functions and features are emphatically results-oriented. With its trend-setting performance possibilities together with the seamlessly integrated MPC software, it becomes the central tool on stage and in the studio.

High resolution control

From the heart of the Akai MPC One shines a 7-inch full-color, multi-touch display. Editing MIDI events, adding effects, editing step sequences, arranging, sampling and much more can be done in an intuitive way.

Illuminated Pads

The velocity-sensitive pads are used to play notes into the MPC One's sequencer and trigger the sounds. For an even better overview, the pads are backlit in RGB colors.

MPC One & Modular systems

Eight freely configurable CV/Gate outputs allow the connection between the AKAI Professional MPC One and a modular system. Also other synthesizers, which have CV/Gate inputs, can be controlled by the MPC One in this way.

Storage capacity of the Akai MPC One

The MPC offers an internal memory capacity of 2GB; 2GB of sample content is already included! The size of the working memory is 2GB RAM. Additional samples can be stored on an SD card. (Medium not included in delivery). As further interfaces, two USB 2.0 slots are available for external hard drives, or the connection with MIDI controllers.

PlugIn Synthesizer

The Akai MPC One includes the four powerful plug-in synthesizers TUBESYNTH, BASSLINE, ELECTRIC and DRUMSYNTH, which can be used as full-fledged instruments without a computer connection:

Tubesynth - emulates the sound of classic analog polysynths combined with 5 integrated AIR effects. The synthesizer includes all important parameters in great detail in a special graphical user interface on the touch displays of MPC Live and MPC X. Tube Synth was developed by AIR Music Tech and is based on the same analog modeling technology already found in the well-known plugin synthesizer Vacuum Pro. The layout has been adapted to ensure convenient control via the MPC Q-Links. Tubesynth is equipped with an extensive collection of preset sounds including wide floating pad sounds, hard plucks, vibrating basses and expressive lead sounds.

Bassline - emulates the sound of classic vintage mono synthesizers. Also includes 4 AIR effects and 2 distortion algorithms.

Electric - emulates the sound of classic electric pianos.

Drumsynth - 8 synthesis models for your own drum sounds.

New OS update with drum synthesizer

With the MPC update 2.9, a new killer feature has been added! With DRUMSYNTH you can build your own drum sounds in eight individual engines (kick, snare, clap, percussion, tom, crash, hihat and ride) using FM synthesis, analog & physical modeling and sample-based algorithms to your heart's content and enhance them with effects like transient shaper, EQ or delay. In Multi mode, you can access all eight engines simultaneously, ideal for expressive performances! Custom sounds can be saved as user presets.

MPC Firmware Update 2.8 Overview

OS Update 2.8 for MPC X, One & Live

Akai Professional never tires of improving its MPC series and adding new features. In the last updates, among other things, several mixing and mastering effects from AIR Music Technology have found their way in. Integration with Ableton Live and the sample supplier Splice has been implemented or expanded. In addition, the sequencer area has been upgraded with grid and step automation.

With the update 2.8, the MPC X, One & Live becomes the central MIDI sequencer in the studio! With the enhanced routing capabilities, different hardware inputs and outputs are connected and merge into one big, complex instrument. With multitrack recording, everything in the MPC now merges into the primary production and studio tool. In addition, Timing Correct, self-selected note assignment for different program types, Retrospective Record (recording MIDI notes and data in the background), Q-Link Overlay (better visual feedback of the knobs in the display) and workflow improvements have been integrated in the new OS.

  • Standalone MPC - works without computer connection
