Akai MPC on your iPad and iPhone. Akai Professional, the name synonymous with music production, announces the immediate availability of the SynthStation music production app for both iPhone or iPod Touch in the iTunes App Store. SynthStation also works on the iPad.

Get iMPC here:

SynthStation transforms an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a portable music production studio. While the SynthStation app is powerful enough for professional musicians, virtually anyone can use it to easily create music. Built around Akai Professional’s history in synthesis and drawing on the company’s newest MINIAK synth, the SynthStation app sounds great and offers wide-ranging sonic flexibility with its virtual analog synthesis. The app gives musicians three synthesizers for creating melodies, chords and bass lines. For creating melodic and accompaniment parts, the SynthStation contains an on-screen keyboard complete with an arpeggiator and an XY control interface for expressive control of key parameters.

SynthStation also contains over 50 drum kits containing all the classic sounds of the past, legendary MPC samples and most popular modern samples. An onscreen MPC-style pad interface offers a trusted method of drum performance, while individual sample controls for Pitch and Volume enable tweaking the drums to fit the mix just right.

SynthStation contains a full mixing section to provide immediate control over the individual synth and drum parts. Adjust volume levels, mute tracks or route instruments to the internal effects processor to quickly create dynamic and engaging mixes.

SynthStation users can create and save sequences and complete songs. Once sequences have been programmed and organized, SynthStation can record a performance of the song capturing all modulation, mixing and keyboard playing. Through a WIFI connection, download both an audio (.WAV) and MIDI file of the performance for further editing, or uploading online and sharing newly composed tracks with others.

“The SynthStation app transforms the iPhone or iPod Touch into a professional musical workstation in a streamlined, all-in-one program,” said Adam Cohen, Director of Business Development, Akai Professional.

The SynthStation app is available now from the iTunes App Store for $9.99 US.
