Manufacturer AKAI is reducing the price of its MPC 2 production software for Windows and macOS. Until November 2 2021, both versions – Standard and Premier – are being discounted by around 50% off the regular price. At this point in its evolution, MPC 2 is a full-fledged workstation which includes software instruments, samples, loops, and many ready-made sequences. MPC 2 also integrates into your DAW as a plug-in. Basically, if you wanted to try the MPC sequencer without going for the hardware, you can do that now and save a lot!

Until November 2 2021, AKAI is reducing the sales price of its flagship MPC 2 software. Both versions – Standard and Premier – are fully equipped with a sequencer, virtual synthesizers, instruments, sounds and MPC expansions (5 for Standard, 10 for Premier). Of course, you can also import your own loops and samples (with time stretching and audio warping) to make music out of. MPC 2 also connects with modern AKAI hardware, in addition to having support for Ableton Link and Bluetooth MIDI.
AKAI has been taking good care of its MPC offerings, releasing hefty updates for the MPC 2 software, its modern MPC grooveboxes (MPC One, MPC Live II, MPC X), and the Force unit. Version 2.10 added 14 AIR plugins and a ton of goodies you should be checking out.
