Legendary Producer Scott Storch Making Beats On AKAI MPC X & MPK88

AKAI's latest MPC powerhouse is designed to work in a fully standalone capacity. In this video we see Scott Storch using AKAI gear to produce a beat in realtime.  

In this latest episode of its Standalone Challenge series, the guys from AKAI visit legendary producer Scott Storch, who has worked with huge artists including Dr Dre, Beyonce and Chris Brown to experience first hand how he creates tracks using the MPC hardware. 

Using only his MPK88 controller keyboard connected directly to the MPC X workstation, the video shows how Scott starts off a track in realtime, adds beats live and builds up multiple elements and progressions as he goes. You can see how the all-in-one design of the MPC X with its large touchscreen interface really does let you work without a computer.
