"Many, many bug fixes" und mehr Akai hat heute das langerwartete dritte Software-Update für die MPC Renaissance und die MPC Studio veröffentlicht. Das bringt nicht nur “Many, many bugfixes”, sondern auch diverse neue Features, unter anderem den neuen Vintage Mode “SP1200 Ring” (allerdings nur auf der Renaissance) und einen umgestrickten Mixer mit besserem Plugin-Handling.

You can route multiple tracks to the same plugin. ◾ ProTools transport control (see Help menu for setup instructions). ◾ New vintage emulation mode: SP1200 Ring. ◾ Hardware zoom control (press shift + cursor keys). ◾ Project archive facility, to easily move projects between computers (File>Export>As Project Archive). ◾ Facility to delete all unused samples in a project (Edit>Delete Unused Samples). ◾ File import of MPC2000 and 2000XL format APS and ALL files. ◾ Support for custom program edit UIs for plugin programs. The bundled instruments now have tailor-made editors.
