Buying MPC Software only

Hi,
Sorry for the generic title. Feel free to edit it properly if needed.
I see that the software can be bought without the need of hardware .
It's great ,since Ren is discontinued and (for me) was way better than touch.
So,
If I buy the mpc software (2.4) , can I add it to my akai account and redownload it if needed or grub free updates?

  • Hey korakios,

    Thanks for posting!

    If you purchase the software you will receive an email with the download link and authorization code. However, this will not be stored in your Akai Pro account as it is not purchased directly from the Akai Pro web site.

    You will always be eligible for free updates for version 2 of the software. Updates will be pushed automatically through the software upon their release. If you find that you need to download the software again, you can access a download link via the trial at the Akai Pro website. As long as your license is authorized on your computer, you will have access to the full version of the software with this download.

    I hope that's helpful! Let me know if you have any questions.

  • It was definitely helpful!
    May I also ask ,what if Akai releases a v3 with discount option for v2 owners.
    Is it possible then to upgrade with my authorization code, or I have to buy a new license ?

  • I can't really comment on that too much as there has been no word about a third release for MPC just yet. Going by the transition from MPC 1 to MPC 2, certain hardware did provide the software for free while other hardware required a payment to upgrade. I am sure this will become more clear in the future!

    That said, announcements about updates and new releases will not be published here on the community forum. If you are interested in hearing about new information from the company as soon as it's released, here are a few ways that you can stay ahead of the curve:

    • Follow the company on Facebook.

    • Follow the company on Twitter.

    • Check the website homepage or product pages.

    Until information exists in one or all of these places, there will not be any official announcements or discussions about future releases here on the community forum.

    With all of that being said, we appreciate your interest in our company and will continue to strive to improve on our products and customer experience. As always, I am happy to continue forwarding all interest, reviews and new ideas over to our team for consideration :)

    Thanks! Let me know if you have any additional questions!
