The same standalone performance power of the legendary MPC in a smaller footprint.

The Akai MPC one is a standalone music production center. It operates without a computer, but can also be used as a controller when connected to one. With all its processing power and storage capacity onboard, the MPC One lets you build beats and mix loops anywhere you find inspiration, with a workflow that will spark your creativity. Providing a 7-inch touchscreen and an abundance of control features and connectivity, the compact MPC One is all you need to prepare and perform your next musical masterpiece.

Core processing and editing features

The MPC One has the same processor as its bigger sibling the MPC X. This multi-core processor enables the MPC One to handle virtually any task you ask of it. The 7-inch touchscreen is large enough to give you excellent visual and tactical control. With it, editing and chopping samples is quick and easy.

Familiar beat-making

Similar to all MPC products, MPC One is designed to make beat production fun and easy. You’ll find four touch-sensitive controls and a large data encoder. Sixteen velocity- and pressure-sensitive RBG pads convey the full expressive range of your performance. Other familiar MPC features include note repeat, full level, 16 levels and dedicated transport controls. If that’s not enough, there’s MIDI in/out on the rear panel for connecting other control devices such as electronic drums or keyboards.

Connectivity and capacity

The MPC One is ready to work with most gear you already have in your studio. Connected to a computer via USB, the MPC One can transfer audio files back and forth, or be your new beat-making/DAW controller. It has MIDI in/out to plug in other controllers and E-kits. There are line inputs for sampling and outputs for playback. It also has 4 CV/gate connecters for outboard analog gear.

Concerning capacity, the MPC One has 4GB of internal storage, but there’s also a front-loaded SD card reader and a rear-panel USB thumb-drive input to expand its built-in memory or to import new loops and projects.

MPC software and content

The MPC One comes loaded with the latest MPC 2 software. This production suite combines 128-track sequencing capability, real-time time stretching, clip-launch functionality, advanced MIDI editing capability, VST compatibility in controller mode, operation as a standalone application on Mac & PC, advanced sampling & audio editing/recording functionality, seamless DAW integration, a redesigned GUI and much more.

The MPC One comes packed with its own drum sample & loop library from sound designers including RawCutz, Sample Tools by CR2, F9, Decap, MSX Sound Design and MVP Loops. MPC One also features signature synth engines, Electric, Tubesynth and Bassline, as well as premium AIR FX for mixing & mastering. Splice is natively embedded in MPC One, so you can experience immediate network access to your own Splice library directly from the touch user interface.
