Akai has just released the new 2.0.5 update for its MPC Live and MPC X. The new firmware introduces a number of powerful production and performance features, including: audio warping and time-stretching on the individual drum pad level for manipulating loops and hits on each pad within a drum program, improved Program and Audio editing, Bluetooth® 4.0 MIDI capability and enhanced support for storage expansion/external drives.
Another huge new addition to 2.0.5 is Ableton Link support, the first time ever on a standalone hardware unit. MPC users can now synchronize and play back audio in real time with other Link-enabled music making devices and apps (including iMPC Pro) using a shared Wi-Fi connection.
