The Akai MPC Live II Retro is battery powered, so you can create whenever inspiration strikes and features in-built monitors so instant mix feedback is achieved. If you then wish to integrate this into a more extensive studio setup, you can connect full-sized studio speakers for even precise mixing functionality. The ‘Retro’ design aspect is in the name, sporting a colour scheme deemed as retro, an old school look and feel.
