Akai MPC2000 App For iPad

Akai MPC2000 App For iPad

Retronymns is working together with Akai to bring an authentic MPC2000 app to their app Tabletop. It will run within the app along with many other useful virtual instruments.

Here is what they said, “The MPC on iPad is going to be a blast with classic MPC beat making features, sweet effects, and a killer sampling workflow, and now you’ll be able to work this legendary device into your Tabletop sessions! Possibly the best part is how it works: owners of the stand alone MPC app will automatically unlock the MPC device in Tabletop for free — no need to purchase it twice!”

Additionally they have partnered up with iZotope to bring a suite of real-time vocal processing tools to future versions of the Tabletop app.

“By partnering with iZotope, we’ll be able to offer Tabletop users the distinctive pitch-shifting vocal effects heard in so many popular songs. Use them to polish & perfect your tracks, or push the envelope and pitch-shift your live vocals to somewhere entirely new. No matter how you choose to use the iZotope tools, you’ll benefit from the same ease of use and modular design that makes all Tabletop devices work so well together.”

These features are coming soon. My guess is they will be in app purchase as additional kit but I hope they are including in the initial price.

Tabletop is available for $9.99
