Software Features: Plugins, Effects, and Arpeggiator
The new software update gives you three brand new synthesizer plugins built directly into the new update. These synthesisers are a Tubesynth, Bassline, and Electric, all developed by AIR Technology. Accomplish aggressive, sawtooth lead lines, a soft, pulsing bassline and an 80s style Electric piano that is almost instantly recognisable.
These synthesisers also boast new, independent plugin effects. Also developed by AIR Technology, use these plugin effects independently to enhance your synth lines, bass lines, or your drum beats. From ambient reverb to crushing Tube Distortion, these effects continue to enhance your compositions and take them to the next level.
The new Arpeggiator expands upon your conventional Arp. With four modes to experiment with, use the Arpeggiator to explore your sonic capabilities and apply it to your tracks. For more indepth information on all of these new synthesisers, plugin effects, and Arpeggiator modes, please refer to the MPC 2.3 Software Update Release Notes PDF.
Software Features: Auto-Sample
This update offers the ability to sample your own favourite synthesizers. The new Auto-Sample feature will allow you to sample any synthesizer preset or VST Plugin preset and turn it into a keygroup program on the MPC. The ‘Auto-Sample’ feature offers a -C2 to G8 octave range and up to four velocity layers. So you can layer textures and build the song you want. You can also edit the note stride, note length, tail length, and loop time. Capture your chosen sounds accurately and without any kind of unwanted digital artefacts. Once these sounds have been captured, they can be saved into your MPC as a preset and integrated into your set
