The Akai MPC-X SE (Special Edition) is the most powerful MPC available. Combining increased RAM and user storage, with an expanded plugin instrument library, and over 100 insert effects from the legendary AIR software team, the intuitive workflow of MPC-X SE delivers the ultimate platform for sample-based beatmakers.

Looking back to move forward.

2023 marks 35 years of the MPC, from not so humble beginnings as a revolutionary sampling drum machine, the stylish retro colour scheme is a nod to the past - while the latest technology crammed under the hood is focussed on the future. It’s clear that the MPC-X SE was conceived to cement Akai’s position as the brand for hardware-based beat creation.

Built around a powerful quad-core ARM processor, which is linked to 4GB of RAM, the MPC-X SE is perfectly capable of becoming the heart of a DAW-less setup. The impressive connectivity - whether taken from an audio, MIDI or data standpoint – ensures that every piece of hardware you own can be controlled by the MPC. Sampling straight into the SE is a breeze thanks to the dedicated phono stage, if you’re stuck for a sound simply sign into your Splice account a grab whatever you need from the millions of sounds available.

While the MPC-X SE is right at the forefront of today’s beat-making tech, it inherits many features that have shaped the world of electronic music throughout the years. From the velocity sensitive 16-pad grid layout, through to the classic MPC swing, and of course note repeat as well as 16 levels – every Akai innovation you would expect to find is here, ready to take your music to the next level.

Building on the legacy of MPC, the standalone platform blends seamless touchscreen technology with more I/O than ever and wireless integrations including WIFI and Bluetooth. It’s all too easy to overlook the pace of development of MPC OS over the past few years since the launch of the original MPC-X. Now with Ableton Link 3 on board and a huge collection of synths, insert FX and MPC expansions available – no matter what style of music you create the MPC-X SE is the perfect production partner. Combine the 20 included instruments with the Notes and Chords modes to create musical phrases to compliment your samples.

The main features of the Akai Professional MPC-X-SE (Special Edition) include:

  • Standalone MPC - no computer required
  • ARM based architecture with 4GB RAM for sampling and audio recording
  • MPC plugin collection- 20+ MPC instruments
  • 48GB internal storage (over 16GB for user storage)
  • 100+ insert effects from AIR Music Tech
