The Akai MPC X Standalone Production Machine features a wide range of versatile connectivity, including both analog and digital connections. One of the most unique inputs this MPC boasts is the XLR / ¼’’ Combo inputs with built-in Phantom Power. This allows you to connect studio-grade microphones for capturing high quality recordings, perfect for sampling vocals as well as percussive elements for sampling. The 4 selectable inputs in total include 2 instrument level jacks as well as a turntable RCA input with ground peg for connecting your turntable for sampling capabilities.
