MPC Live Review and Performance Video
My name is Brennan Galley and I am the Canadian Technical Sales Manager for inMusic Canada. I tour Canada coast to coast and show musicians how to use innovative instruments, DJ and Music production equipment. One of the companies I represent is Akai Professional. The MPC Live is a product that I had for a week and a half. It was in my possession to show at a trade show in Toronto ON. I also had a chance to show it to music stores throughout Alberta.
What is the MPC Live?
The MPC Live and it’s bigger brother, the MPCX, are stand alone sequencers, samplers, and drum machines. When these arrive they will be shipping with MPC 2.0. MPC 2.0 brings some next level, never before seen, features. It has full audio tracks with on the fly pitch and time elasticity. The Pitch and time work independently of each other, so the ways to use this as a creative tool are endless. It also comes with clip audio playback. A very accurate way to perform your tracks. Also the clips and audio track will stay in sync with your bpm. So you can speed up and slow down your tracks on the fly.
Audience decides what is in the tutorial video MPC Live tutorial series.
After a couple of days with the MPC Live I shot a video series to help people get started. So far I have only published the performance video aspect. When the MPC Live is in stores I will be publishing the full tutorial series. Although the bulk of the content is recorded edited and ready to go, I am going to shoot follow up video’s that address some specific questions that are being asked in the comment section on the performance video. My hope is that this video series will cover what you want to see. When I do demo’s in store, people get a moment to figure out the details and ask questions. This is hard to do in the Youtube world.
Comments in questions are more than encouraged. I am also going to start posting my tour schedule here. This way if you want to spend time with me to figure out your gear, and are Canadian, you have that choice. If you’re grabbing Tims I’m a large one milk. 😉
