And the press release:


New plugins and a new Sounds Mode offering a powerful way to access, explore, and load MPC instrument presets, projects, and custom layered track combinations.

Cumberland, RI USA (June 9, 2022) Akai Professional, a leading manufacturer of music equipment for performers and producers announces the upcoming MPC 2.11 features update, free for registered MPC users and available on June 23, 2022. This feature update provides MPC music creators with new tools and enhancements for better productions with a more creative and organized workflow.

The new Sounds Mode is a vibrant multi-faceted browser that puts all the MPC instruments front and center. Dive into any plugin and search the presets by category or, cycle through and preview sounds individually. Save up to 256 presets for quick recall on the Favorites Tab and lay out your projects for one-touch loading on the Setlists Tab, enabling faster load times in between song performances.

MPC 2.11 also adds 2 new plugin effects. The new AIR Flavor plugin adds instant vinyl simulation to any sound source. Add flutter, tube saturation, distortion, and more for rich, textured manipulation from 30 different Timbers. Additionally, the new AIR Amp Sim insert effect delivers sweet and crunchy distortion, EQ and tone color to samples, vocals, drums, synths, bass, and yes—guitars—or any other sound source. AIR Amp Sim adds texture and character that brings your sound to life.

MPC 2.11 also adds Probability & Ratcheting for humanizing your tracks and adding more feel. This feature will add interesting variation and dimension to repetitive beats, rhythms and melody lines. The Note Probability feature lets you control note variations at 25%, 50%, or 75% increments, while the Ratchet feature adds a creative subdivision to notes into any increment from 1-8. More creative control means more fresh, exciting new ideas.

The MPC Tuner is a one-touch instrument tuner assuring your instruments are always in tune, without the need to unplug and connect to a hardware device—perfect for stringed instruments or analog synthesizers and modules.

The new drum Pad to Keygroup function allows you to assign and pitch any sample from a pad instantly to a new keygroup program, which can then be played across the key-range. Any sampled sound from a drum program can now be played as scales, chords or melodies for musical dimension. Additionally, new MIDI Key Splits can layer multiple tracks with the Key Ranges section, each with unique split points. Blend 8 instrument tracks or any combination of Drum, Keygroup, and MIDI tracks to create massive multi-timbral sound stacks.

EMBARGO UNTIL Thursday June 9th, 2022, AT 10AM EDT / 3PM BST

WiFi enabled MPC devices will now support Ableton Link 3.0 for responsive start and stop controls, keeping all your devices in perfect sync. MPC 2.11 will now also allow the configuration of a track to filter notes outside a given key range or velocity range.

MPC 2.11 will be available Thursday June 23, 2022, as a free download for all registered standalone MPC hardware users.

The Smallest Midi Controller EVER

video upload by Gabe Miller Music

"I test and review the Noise Machine (NMSVE) by THIS.IS.NOISE inc, the smallest midi controller I could possibly find."

via inc is a start-up company founded by two brothers from Toronto, Ontario.

We build unconventional MIDI controllers that are set on changing the where, when, and how music is made.

NMSVE stands for: Noise Machine Straight Vibin' Edition. NMSVE is an ultra portable BLE MIDI controller that is used with MIDI software. We believe NMSVE works best with mobile devices (iOS, iPadOS, Android), however NMSVE can connect to just about any platform - even hardware synths using Bluetooth adapters!

Common use cases: triggering samples, controlling FX, wireless live sets, MIDI looping, lighting + audio, and of course - making beats on the go!

Additional details:

Noise Machine Straight Vibin' Edition

powerful, yet portable!

The main idea behind NMSVE was to create a portable MIDI controller made for the modern beat maker.

A device that's fun to play, compact, and functional that DOESN'T take up valuable desk space.

NMSVE works by wirelessly connecting to MIDI capable software on your smartphone, laptop, or PC/MAC via Bluetooth.

Consisting of 12 buttons, a knob, and a slider, NMSVE allows you to choose from 12 MIDI channels and offers 3 modes of use... all in a case that's smaller than your wallet!
