The Studio Centerpiece

Overview

IN THE MOOD FOR MODULAR

Control external analogue synth gear using the 8 built-in CV ports. These ports can be configured to send pitch, velocity, and gate CV to analogue synths, drum machines, etc. Automate knob movements, notes, gates and play it all back in time with the MPC. This makes the X one of the best modular sequencers available.

TOUCH IT, PLAY IT

Control every parameter using the 16 fully assignable, touch-capactive Q-Link knobs. With a dedicated OLED display above each 360 (degree symbol) knob, you can easily see what parameter you're tweaking and the current assigned value. The Q-Links are great for adding expressiveness to your tracks thru recording automation.

SOUNDS FOR DAYS

The MPC has a well-earned reputation for sounds that hit hard and sound great, right out of the box. The MPC X comes pre-installed with The Vault 2.0, 10GB of radio-ready sounds from the world's top sound design companies as well as our own signature samples.
