Hi
I found following information on that below link include new feature list:
http://www.buenasideas.de/2017/akai-b...

But can't find that new firmware.
Not in my account or under Device--->Download--->Firmware
Only the old 2.0.3 is available... :(

@Nick: you know something?

Thanks in advance ;)

Cheers

Michael

  • Well here are some of the statements of the supposed updates

    Akai Professional announces the release of the MPC firmware update 2.0.5. This update includes several new performance features for Live MPC and MPC X. In addition, the new firmware contains a complete newly designed real-time pitch-Shifting- and time-stretching algorithm for manipulating loops and hits on the respective pads, improved program and audio editing capabilities, Bluetooth 4.0 MIDI and enhanced support for memory expansion and external drives.

    Another significant new feature in 2.0.5 is the Ableton Support link via WLAN. Thus MPC MPC Live and X are the first stand-alone devices that are compatible with Ableton link. MPC users can use this update immediately via WLAN their hardware in real time with other instruments and Apps Sync (including the IMPC Pro).

    the features
    Ableton link via WLAN - dubbed the standalone MPC Live or X with other Ableton Link - Apps and applications. For a complete list of supported apps here: https://www.ableton.com/de/link/apps
    Bluetooth® 4.0 MIDI support - controller such as the Akai LPK25 Wireless and Wireless LPD8 now be used to play MPC instruments and kits wirelessly
    Redesigned real-time pitch-shifting and time-stretching algorithm - samples to each pad within a drum program can be manipulated individually by Time Stretch or Pitch Shift in real time now
    Improved audio and program execution
    Enhanced support for memory expansion - hard drives can now be formatted with the MPC
    " This firmware update raises the MPCs to a whole new level ," said Pete Good Life, Director of Software Development for Akai Professional. " The new features make the MPC to a real performance powerhouse and improved connectivity offers a world of new creative possibilities. "

    The 2.0.5 update is now available on the website of AKAI Pro for all registered MPC Live and MPC X users for free disposal.

  • So I guess no MIDI out over BT which is pity. It would be awesome to control iPhone/iPad synths

  • Hey Michael,

    Thanks for posting!

    No official word here on my end regarding the release of the next update - v2.0.3 is the current firmware version (from earlier this summer). The Akai team is constantly collecting data via the feedback module built into the MPC software and developing updates but at this time I have no official information regarding a firmware version past 2.0.3.

    Hi there,

    just a quick question about "last step" per track feature included f.i. in Korg's Electribe2 or Roland's TR8. Any idea of this if is it gonna be included in future firmware updates? So useful to control the quantity of steps per bar you select of each track.

    Nothing to do with beats, this are STEPS. In a track of 4 beats/16 steps you could select 1, 2,3,7, 9,11 or whatever steps to be repeated within the bar.

    Regards
