Akai Professional has announced the release of the latest in its MPC series of instruments, the MPC Touch.
Like MPC products before it, the Touch is the jewel in the Akai crown and sees the company diverting its gaze away from the world of analogue synths and back into sampling.
Building on the classic MPC workflow, this sampling workstation teams up the tried and tested pad-based sampler with a 7-inch touch display. Utilising multitouch technology, the display allows you to manipulate waveforms, envelopes, effects and much more, all at your fingertips.
Akai says the MPC Touch is the “result of painstaking engineering development, detailed customer research and user feedback”, so we can hope to see the MPC flagship machine back to its best.
The MPC Touch will be available from November 2015. Check out more Akai Professional products here
