Akai launched the MPC range back in 1988 with the MPC60 Music Production Centre that became an instant classic amongst music professionals. Many models have followed and Akais 2013 models, the MPC Renaissance, MPC Fly and MPC Studio.


Akai MPC Renaissance may look familiar because it borrows heavily from the design of the flagship MPC5000 model. Thanks to its use of software rather than relying on on-board firmware, the Renaissance is nearly half-the-price of the outgoing model. Renaissance successfully bridges the gap between powerful software editing with an ergonomic (and distinctly familiar) hardware interface.


MPC Studio is the second new model in the 2013 MPC line-up which has a distinctly retro-feel. However, this classic-looking controller is given a fresh look with an aluminium body and, thanks to its compact footprint, is very portable and perfect for music professionals on the move.


MPC Fly completes the line-up and harnesses the power of the iPad 2. This slimline and completely portable Music Production Centre is guaranteed to be a hit with producers on the move or hobbyists who want to take their studio anywhere.
