NOTE: MPC Software v1.8.2 for Mac OS requires OS 10.7 or later.
Featuring 128-track sequencing capability and up to eight pad banks- more than any other MPC ever-the included MPC Software delivers a massive 9GB+ sound library, including all the sounds of the classic MPC3000 and four MPC Expansions. Instant mapping and real-time adjustment of VST plugins lets you record each track as an MPC drum program, Keygroup program, or VST/AU plugin. Use MPC Software alone as your main DAW, or use it seamlessly with your current studio as a VST, RTAS, or AU plugin. And with the included Avid Pro Tools Express, you can compose, record, edit, and mix using a collaborative platform found in nearly every professional recording studio in the world.
NOTE: MPC Software is provided with the MPC Studio and MPC Renaissance hardware. MPC Software also works with the MPC Element hardware, however, the user must own an MPC Studio or MPC Renaissance to unlock the MPC Software first.
