Description
The essential instrument for computer-based music production, MPC Element brings powerful music-making capability to your computer in a slimline design that's made to produce. You get cutting-edge features, including MPC Note Repeat and Swing, along with the all-new MPC Essentials software. With the included 1GB sound library, MPC Essentials empowers you with the essential sounds of modern music production, and you can easily import your own sound samples. MPC Essentials can operate standalone and can also work seamlessly with your current DAW as a plugin. MPC Element comes with everything you need to make music right away, and, because it operates via standard MIDI, you can also use MPC Element to control MIDI music software you already have. An 1/8-inch MIDI input and an 1/8-inch MIDI output are both onboard and 1/8-inch to 5-pin MIDI cables are included.
