The Akai MPC5000 is the new flagship in beat production, sampling and sequencing; say hello to the most powerful and most advanced MPC ever made.

The MPC line is the unquestioned industry standard in studio and live beat production; fusing expressive pressure-sensitive pads, an extensive array of assignable tactile controls, and a critical mass of powerful sequencing and sampling effects, the MPC5000 is here to take music production to a whole new level.

Offering over a hundred brand new capabilities such as the internal, streaming multi track recording and on-board virtual analog synthesis, the MPC5000’s industry advances are numerous.

There’s a new, high-res 960 ppq sequencing engine, 64-track continuous sampling, newly engineered effects engine, random and cycle-sample playback, turntable preamp, new virtual analog synth, and 650 MB of space. The 5000 is the first MPC to include 8-track direct-to-hard disk recording, a 20-voice,3-oscillator analog synthesizer with arpegglator, pad and track mixing and muting and even a new FX engine with 4 FX buses and 2 FX per bus.

The MPC5000 allows you to create unique sounds and samples, connect to almost any set-up, sequence, mix, and edit. This is the production mainstay of today’s DJ’s and avant-garde musicians. Not only does the MPC allow you to produce your track, as it should, it also lets you mix and remix, record, and finally burn or export your tracks. There is no other workstation that affords music and beat producers so much flexibility, power, capability, and control than the MPC5000 and for that, you may thank Akai.
