The concept is simple. We get some of the best producers and musicians across different genres to make an original track from scratch using only the new MPCs - no computers allowed. Now it’s your turn. Take the #standalonechallenge and share your creations online. We'll repost the best tracks on our social channels.


Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the MPC Live can run up to 6 hours without plugging into a power source. Whether on a plane, at the coffeeshop or in the park, professional music production power is no longer limited to the studio.
