Akai has announced a new FREE version of their MPC software called MPC Beats. Use standalone or as a plugin. Limited to only 8 MIDI tracks and 2 audio tracks. Use any controller, you don't need one from Akai.

Download link



By the time the pandemic is over, noone will ever have to pay for software again ;)

It's the kind of download where you need to fill in a form, give them your email address, and then hope they one day get around to maybe sending you a download link.

Tried with two different addresses now, still no download link four hours later...

Maybe it's the intern's job to go through the emails and issue download links manually, or something, because there's simply no other way to make a download link available to interested people in, like, seconds or anything...

Possibly. It does take quite some time to go a get a new fresh batch of download links off of the shelf in the warehouse... :lol:

It took two days, but one by one the emails for each of my download request attempts arrived. Now trying to figure out how it works :?
