NAMM 2012: iZotope Partners with Akai Professional to provide Loop Slicing and Time Stretching Technology for Next Generation MPCs

iZotope has announced a new partnership with Akai Professional to provide iZotope’s Radius time-stretching algorithm and Loop Slicing Engine for future products in the MPC line, including the new MPC Renaissance and MPC Studio. Combining MPC hardware with new MPC software, these are the first MPCs designed to harness the processing power of a user’s Mac or PC.

“The MPC is a giant in music production history.” says Alex Westner, iZotope’s Director of Business Development, “iZotope is very excited that our technology can make the MPC a more powerful and flexible hybrid of hardware and software.”

“Top-notch audio is essential when updating a beloved product line like the MPC Series,” adds Dan Gill, Akai Professional Product Manager. “iZotope's loop-slicing and time-stretching technology were critical to making the new MPC products sound great.”

iZotope’s Loop Slicing Engine
The Loop Slicing Engine provides an extended suite of slicing tools, compatible with both Chop Shop and REX file formats. The engine’s unique algorithm maintains high quality audio throughout real-time loop manipulation while remaining lightweight in terms of processing power.

The MPC line takes advantage of additional features such as:

  • Manual and automatic loop slicing.
  • Slicing and stretching with per-slice stretching options.
  • Triggering of individual slices or the entire loop from beginning to end.
  • Transient detection.
  • Pitch shifting via cents or semitones.

Availability

Akai Professional unveiled the new MPC Renaissance and MPC Studio at booth #6400 at the 2012 NAMM Show from January 19—22 in Anaheim, California. Both will be available for purchase in Q3 2012.
