At an inch-and-a-half thick, with low-profile controls and a dark, sleek, brushed-aluminum body, MPC Studio Black is made to move and look good doing it.
The MPC Studio Black merges real MPC pads, iconic workflow, and the same MPC Software used by the MPC Renaissance to give you a fully integrated portable production solution anywhere you can connect it to your computer.
Akai Professional listened to four years of user feedback to find a way to improve the best-selling MPC Studio. It’s still small, sturdy, and covered in features: 16 Genuine MPC pads and 4 Q-Link control knobs with MPC Note Repeat, Full Level, and 16 Level for inspirational workflow.
But the MPC Studio Black also has better knobs, scroll wheel, and the MPC Renaissance’s spun aluminum data dial so they’ll hold up even longer and give you a better feel during your performances.
