Review: MPC STUDIO MK2 vs Maschine Mikro MK3 and full tutorial

MPC Studio is a new hardware controller for the MPC software running on a Mac or PC, meaning that it doesn’t do anything one its own, but rather gives you hardware access to many of the features of the MPC software. MPC Studio is designed to give you the best of both worlds – the hands on control of hardware, alongside as much storage and IO and as many plugins as you have on your computer.

In this video I give an overview of who it’s for, what it can do, give you a quick look at the MPC workflow overall, and also compare MPC Studio MK2 to its standalone brother, the MPC One, and its main competitor, the Maschine Micro.
