The MPC X is clearly designed to be the more complete studio version of the two MPCs announced today – and it’s a welcome upgrade for many users who want a full-size MPC but never really found the computer-anchored MPC Renaissance to be an attractive option. Beyond a large ten inch screen, it also has dedicated buttons for the menu, master encoder, and 16 touch-sensitive assignable pots with OLED displays. Studio producers can add their own hard drive with the SATA connector, and take advantage of MIDI I/O ports. Despite a studio-centric feature set, the MPC X does have the same internal rechargeable battery – if you want to use it in the wild, not a problem. Here’s the full feature set:


  • Standalone MPC – no computer required
  • Also acts as a control surface for MPC 2.0 software
  • 10.1” full-color multi-touch display
  • Internal, rechargeable lithium-ion battery
  • 2 RCA phono inputs with ground peg
  • 16GB of on-board storage (over 10GB of sound content included)
  • User-expandable 2.5” SATA drive connector (SSD or HDD)
  • 4 full-size MIDI inputs, 2 full-size MIDI Outputs
  • CV/Gate outputs enabling the analog control of modular gear, such as classic synths
  • 2 USB-A 3.0 slots for thumb drives or MIDI controllers
  • Forthcoming support for Ableton Link and WiFi
