MPC Pads

MPC Software Updated to 1.3

Akai promised that the software that powers the new generation of MPCs would be subject to constant improvement, and the first ‘proper’ update is now here…

The update’s available for users of both MPC Studio and MPC Renaissance directly from Akai, and focuses on workflow improvements and the addition of a new vintage mode filter:

  • Multi-timbral plugin support
  • Sequences can share a single plugin
  • Drag and drop sample folders onto a pad to create programs
  • Improved sample chopping with split/combine via double click and dedicated function button
  • Software zoom via Renaissance/Studio
  • SP1200 Ring Mode – simulates filter bypass on SP1200

This is a good start in my book. Software always improves at what feels like an exponential rate from its initial incarnation because each new addition adds to what came before it. It’s taken other extremely popular software longer than MPC Software to be able to boast all of its features, so whilst there’s a little way to go before MPC Software feels perfect, it’s on the right track. Well, we think so anyway. What do you think?
