Akai is has clearly decided to go after Native Instruments with a full range of new competitive products that is sure to excite all of you music creators. The Akai MPC-Studio is the newest MPC studio production unit from Akai that is designed to work with any computer via USB. Users will get the same workflow system present in the stand-alone MPC units, the same studio grade drum pads, and a nice one-inch-thin portable and aluminum body construction. There is no doubt that this unit was created to rival the highly successful Native Instruments Maschine.

MPC Studio offers the most streamlined MPC experience yet. At under one-inch thin, with low-profile controls and a brushed aluminum body, it's made to move. MPC Studio merges real MPC pads, iconic workflow, and the same MPC Software used by MPC Renaissance to give you a fully integrated portable production solution.

Welcome to production anywhere. The world is now your studio.
