Utopic but possible...

Akai, while you made a great forward step to let standalone MPC (and the whole MPC eco-system) the best all-in-one tool, you are revealed that you can adapt VSTs into the standalone era. I think it's a brilliant idea that instead of porting a native VST support, you will port only some modified version of those plugins strongly made up for using built-in on both software and hardware.
However - you should not miss the DSP market. As MPC Live / X supports an onboard USB 3.0 controller, you could easily build a native support for UAD Satellite DSP gears (of course the USB-versions) and a solution for hooking up registered UAD plugins onto the hardware. Imagine the possibilities! :)
Maybe a distant and utopic idea but I would be the happiest people in the world if it would come true.

  • Hey Brian,

    Thanks for posting!

    Sounds like a great idea - I'm sure that would bring a whole new dimension of sound design to the MPC workflow! Be sure to submit this as a feature request with the MPC 2 Software's built-in feedback module. The feedback module is represented by a smiley icon at the lower right side of the software next to the browser icons. This information goes directly to the Akai team for consideration!

    If you need an alternative method of submitting feedback, you may use the following links:

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Well it would be great if Akai creates its own platform for plugins, a VST style Mpc extension so different brands could develop plugins for standalone in the same way AIR created the three synth plugins on 2.3 update.
    I would buy these MPC plugins.
    It could be not only synths but also effects.
    Is this also utopic?
    Maybe.
    Maybe not.

    Hi Brian,

    that reads interesting and look good on the UA website. It's not an utopic idea, the DEV team should really know about this possibility. If a partnership with UA will come
    true might be another story, since theUAD Satellite DSP is simply UA only.
    Since Akai has just teamed up with Air Tech, it might be very realistic to check what
    they have to offer in their portfolio ..which might find its way into the MPC series.

    Would be dope if we could put effects like sausage fattener in MPC Live or x. A dream unlikely to happen

    • No I would never use mp3, it doesn't make sense nowaday. Mp3 was a workaround for less powerful computers of the past, the sound quality of mp3 is not good .
    • Can't agree on that :-) for background percussion and ambient noises MP3 is ok.
      Anyway, it was an idea to save RAM/to make the MPC a more powerful tool. It
      actually has been a subject already and may not fit this DSP extension thread.
      Finally we post feature requests for external DSP support + audio file "savings".
