Onboard Synth Engines

New in MPC is a number of powerful production and performance features, most notably the addition of three powerful, versatile, and expressive built-in synthesizers by AIR Music Technology (TubeSynth, Bassline and Electric).

This is a landmark feature addition which elevates the MPC from a sampler to a true musical powerhouse.

Effects and Plugins

The original AIR Creative FX collection has been included as part of Pro Tools since Version 8 and is considered the reference FX suite by some of the world’s most respected audio professionals.

This legendary suite of 16 mix essentials has been ported to MPC for immediate use with standalone or desktop MPC software. Each effect has been expertly designed with ease of use in mind and the stunning new TUI layouts take using effects inside MPC to a whole new level.
