Akai Professional, the name synonymous with music production, announces the release of its Vintage Beat Machines Sample Pack for MPC, a sample library for its MPC music production workstations. The sample pack is available now from the company’s Web site.
Beat makers and music producers frequently employ drum and percussion sounds from drum machines, beat and rhythm generators and other synthesizers from the 1980s and prior for their less refined, more raw sound qualities. Until now, amassing a library of these classic sounds has meant locating expensive and rare equipment – a time-consuming and costly process. With the release of the Akai Professional Vintage Beat
Machines Sample Pack for MPC, an extensive collection of common and not-so-common sounds is now available in a single, affordable download.
This new sample pack works with all MPC models and contains samples and analog synthesis-based sounds from nearly all well-known units dating back to the 1960s. More than 55 different beat machines’ sounds are included in the release.
“This is a massive collection of sounds,” said Adam Cohen, Director of Business Development, Akai Professional. “With many of these machines becoming increasingly difficult to track down – let alone afford – this sample pack brings producers outstanding value.”
The Vintage Beat Machines Sample Pack for MPC is available for download within the United States at www.akaipro.com/vintagebeatmachines, for $29.99.
