2.8 firmware update transforms MPC into the ultimate MIDI sequencing studio centerpiece for all the MIDI gear in your studio!

First it was synth engines, then a pro suite of mixing and mastering FX from DSP gurus AIR Music Technology - add to this Wi-Fi enabled Ableton Live and Splice integration, plus significant automation enhancements, and MPC’s evolution simply can’t be ignored. Now, MPC 2.8, introduces MIDI Multi capability, seamlessly transforming MPC into the ultimate MIDI sequencing studio centerpiece.

With MPC 2.8, simultaneously connect and route all the MIDI gear in your studio including class compliant USB Keyboards, MIDI interfaces and USB to CV modules, supercharging your I/O capability. Fuse this with deep internal MIDI routing capability across tracks, comprehensive MIDI routing to any MIDI compatible synthesizer, drum machine or sound module, and even multitrack recording capability, and MPC forms the beating heart of any production setup, unleashing the true power of all your gear.

Other notable enhancements in MPC 2.8 include 

  • Timing Correct (TC) has now been tweaked to have a dedicated On/Off setting that is separate to the TC division parameter.
  • From the standalone MPC firmware you can now create a custom note mapping for any program type.

MPC isn’t just another addition to your studio, it’s your creative core – whether you’re seeking to switch up your workflow or delve into a world of unrestricted standalone creative exploration, MPC is one solution you can’t overlook!
