Akai Pro just announced firmware updates for its Force standalone music production system, and MPC X and MPC Live beat pads. The updates add the ability to access your Splice loops and samples library directly from the Force, MPC X and MPC Live units via WiFi, letting you audition sounds without the need for a laptop. All updates come with a free three-month Splice trial subscription.
The Akai Pro Force is a beast of a production system, and is now even more powerful thanks to the Splice library access feature. We think it’s clever, and it really brings home the concept of it being a true standalone system. Watch out for our review of it soon.
• Firmware updates for Akai Pro Force, MPC X and MPC Live are now available. Check the Akai Pro site for more details.
