How long will this MPC 2.0 Beta last?

Greetings all!

Does anyone know how long this MPC software will remain in Beta?

How long do things in general remain in Beta?

Just wondering.

Thanks!

    I think it varies from product to product, personally I think most things take several months but most of the time we don’t hear about it because it is done internally within the company. I would assume that the X and Live are taking longer because it is basically the first of its kind which I can only imagine would be more difficult. You should wonder why NI, Ableton, Roland , or any other company hasn’t tried to create a hybrid piece of equipment, if it was easy every company would be doing it.

    If you look at the course that Akai has taken. They appear to be focus on more than one thing.
    Like New products/updating VIP3.0 ETC. So the Development team is not primarily focus on the official release and improvement of the MPC 2.0/Firmware update for The MPC-X/live/touch a Major product release.

    There should have been a primary concerted focus and effort towards perfecting.

    You can not call something Professional while it is in a Beta state which would be amateur.

    If the MPC Beta 2.0 software is Beta then the MPC-X/Live Hardware is also embedded/firmware with the basic core of the MPC 2.0 Beta that is used on a computer this make the firmware beta also..

    So in reality The Hardware and software are both in Beta state. Until you update both and launch the official Software and Firmware.

    Dont get me wrong The MPC-X is a beautiful machine and you can still use it to some degree in a professional setting. Using audio for vocal sound is so pristine clear without any reverb or effects but you can not fully integrate it with other USB audio class-compliant hardware such as Multi-timbre instruments, like the Yamaha Montage 6 that has 32 mono out/16 stereo out.

    It is said to be USB MIDI class-compliant (MPC-x/live) but it is not USB Audio class-compliant in Stand alone mode. You can not make it your Central production unless you go into control mode (Computer).

  • Hey everybody,

    Thanks for posting!

    I know we are all excited for the official release of MPC 2.0, myself included! I've discussed this elsewhere in the forum but I do not have a timeline, a roadmap, or any other information regarding the actual release of the software. If I had any additional information that I could provide to the community, I would certainly do that.

    The development team is using the feedback that we are receiving from our user base to refine the software before it is officially released. The MPC software development team is working as quickly as efficiency will allow to deliver a proper release of the software and you can be certain that when the software is released you will definitely know about it!

    Please let me know if you have any questions going forward.
