Akai MPC Live is a versatile standalone digital audio workstation, sequencer and sampler. It includes a 7" multi-touch screen, physical controller knobs and 16 velocity-sensitive pads with color support. By default it has 16 GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded by installing a SATA SSD drive or by plugging in USB memory sticks or an SD card. The unit also includes a built-in rechargeable battery.
The MPC Live includes a 10 GB collection of default sounds (The Vault 2.0), including samples, loops and kits. It also includes MPC 2.0, Mac/Windows software which works together with the MPC Live.
