In creating the MPC Touch Akai Professional have once again established the iconic MPC series as the premier leader in music production technology. Combining the might of a pro-level piece of production gear truly fit to carry the MPC shield with the tactile ease of use found on smartphones and tablets, the Touch is truly a workflow revolution. The MPC Academy video series provides an in-depth overview of the features and benefits of this iconic controller whilst demonstrating how to maximise your production workflow like never before.
In Part 1 of the Touch Workflow video series, we jump headfirst into the MPC Software workflow. The focus is on two of the MPC's core pillars - sampling and sample editing. In Part 2 of our MPC Touch Workflow series, we begin by learning how to calculate the tempo of a sample. We then take a look at how to import individual drum samples to create new drum programs. In Part 3 of the Touch workflow series, we look at how to work the Sequencer and get a few tips for keeping your individual tracks organised. In Part 4 of the Touch Workflow series we explore Grid Mode, using our fingers to quickly sequence patterns and edit note info. We also explain the often overlooked but critical process of saving projects and samples. In Part 5 of the Touch Workflow series, we explore Keygroup Programs. Keygroups allow you to take a sample and map it across the keys of a MIDI controller, essentially creating a custom virtual instrument. Learn how to create new chromatic instruments out of your favorite samples in this video. In Part 6 of the Touch Workflow video series we look at Program Edit mode. In this mode, all parameters can be manipulated, either on the program or individual pad level. In Part 7 of the Touch Workflow series we learn how to incorporate plug-ins into our session. We also take a look at manipulating and correcting MIDI performances using Timing Correct. In Part 8 of the Touch Workflow video series we look at Song Mode. In this mode, we arrange our sequences into one track and export an audio file of our work. In Part 9 of the Touch Workflow series we show you how to export separate audio tracks (aka stems) out of the MPC Software and into your favorite DAW.
In Part 10 of the Touch Workflow series we show you how to use the MPC Touch and MPC Software as a plugin inside of a DAW. While the focus here is on Ableton Live, the concepts here apply to any DAW.
