Powerful computer-based groove production meets bulletproof MPC hardware
Akai's MPC Renaissance isn't just an MPC with custom software, or a DAW with a fancy hardware controller, it's a complete music-production system that combines the best of Akai's MPC hardware, the workflow countless top producers swear by, and the flexibility of today's powerhouse computers. Simply put, MPC Renaissance is everything you need to make the best beats and electronic grooves.
Next-generation MPC hardware delivers top-quality audio and amazing hands-on control
In addition to a set of genuine MPC pads, the MPC Renaissance hardware puts 16 Q-Link encoders, as well as classic MPC Note Repeat, MPC Swing, and MPC transport controls right at your fingertips. There's even a legacy MPC mode built right in, so you can instantly call up the sound of the MPC60, the MPC3000, and other vintage Akai models. On top of that, you also get an adjustable backlit LCD screen. So, if your already familiar with the MPC workflow, you never even have to look at your computer display to lay down beats with the MPC Renaissance system.
Flexible sequencing and sampling software with classic MPC workflow
Speaking of software, Akai developed an amazing music-production application to go hand-in-hand with their incredible MPC Renaissance hardware. It gives you a 64-track sequencer and phenomenal sampling options with support for WAV, MP3, AIFF, REX, and SND files. What's more, MPC Renaissance supports every MPC sample and sequence ever created by any other MPC. This software also gives the MPC Renaissance flexibility that goes way beyond anything that's ever been possible in the strictly hardware realm. For instance, you can load up your favorite VST or AU plug-ins and use them right along with your samples. You can even use MPC Renaissance as a virtual instrument in your favorite DAW!

Music Background: Professional
by Charles Cri$topher from The Coast, CA USAFor someone whom has never put their hands on an MPC could feel right at home on this machine. The more experienced MPC user will feel as if they are right at home. Akai put all of the details and nua... read more [+]nces of classic Akai MPC's in a digital space. No one after putting their hands on one can speak otherwise. As the updates keep flowing the machine will only get better and progress further beyond what old MPC are capable of. You can't understand the plight of MPC user unless you are one. The nostalgic feeling we get when creating on this classic piece is indescribable. "MASCHINE is not better, just different!" All preference, Akai is not better just different. Both units I own, and they both serve their purpose in my studio/club dj environment. Don't get caught up in the hype of which is better make your own decision based on YOUR OWN OPINION. My opinion is that Akai really delivered after a slew of disappointing products. Renaissance is simply amazing to me. close [-]

WHAT NI WAS TRYING TO BUILD
by Terrez "Rezz Wolf" Teague from Winston Salem, NC USAFor starters this is a great interface ,and maschine is ok but the whole 16-Pad Sample idea came from the mpc so why not go with the original.

by Eric "BigFuzzz" Taylor from Coamo, Puerto RicoBeen using MPC's since they came out,... that means I'm old. I still have everyone that I purchased. I moved to the NI Maschine and just got comfy with it, but truly hated the work flow. Now,... I'... read more [+]M BAAAAaaak cause this piece is the truth. The workflow, the non-stop action while creating grooves and the ability to record/sample right into the piece, without having another interface to do so. These three areas are what makes me happy again!! close [-]

Meet the MPC King!
by Thomas Beck from Seattle, WA USAThis is the MPC I have been waiting for a very long time. I had an MPC 2000 when that was new, then went the way of software and controllers and never felt satisfied. Finally, tried the MPC 5000, whil... read more [+]e that was a great machine, the PC interface workflow was less than great. Then came Maschine, that seemed to be the holy grail, but the workflow was not like the MPC, not as intuitive, too many key combos to remember. The MPC Renaissance finally delivers what I had been waiting for. MPC workflow with perfect PC/Mac integration. The VST control mapping works great, the touch sensitive rotary controllers are amazing for mutes, and the lights around the controllers are super quick as you page through parameters. The build is solid, the pads with the lights really help with real time editing (erase etc) and pad assignment. The only thing I think is missing is rewire support. But I am guessing that may be in a future release. Plus the included Akai VSTs are a nice plus. close [-]
