Formerly with an estimated street price of $1299, MPC Renaissance will now sell for an estimated street price of $999, and MPC Studio, formerly $599, will now sell for an estimated street price of $399. In addition, Akai Professional has released Version 1.5 of MPC Software, the powerful and evolving production software at the heart of MPC Renaissance and MPC Studio. Packing more than 100 improvements, Version 1.5 offers a few key features that users have been asking for. While the previous versions of MPC Software required the controller to be connected to the computer at all times, Version 1.5 has the ability to run standalone without the MPC Renaissance or MPC Studio needing to be attached to the computer, for situations where it would be impractical to have the MPC hardware connected.

“As with previous updates, MPC Software has always been about supporting the producer's workflow and creative process,” said Dan Gill, Product Manager, Akai Professional. “This update brings even more of the flexibility that our MPC users have been asking for.”

In addition to the new standalone capability, MPC Software Version 1.5 now has MIDI Control Mode, which allows MPC Renaissance and MPC Studio to become the hands-on controller for any software that allows MIDI control. 

“It lets you remap the entire control surface to whatever you want. With the press of a button, you can switch back and forth between MPC Software and your favorite DAW.”
