Introducing MPC Stems: Akai Pro’s Breakthrough Audio Extraction Technology Now Integrated into MPC Desktop Software, Standalone Operation Coming Soon

Akai Pro has recently released their MPC Stems technology, which is designed to help music producers and beatmakers separate different musical elements in mixed audio. This technology is now integrated into the company’s MPC Desktop Software, promising a new era of sampling and precision. The technology is powered by zPlane’s stem separation engine, which promises superior sound quality and minimal artifacts.

Once separated, the stems can be assigned to pads within the MPC software. Producers can assign sample slices to different pads and isolate specific parts of the original track. The workflow is simple – just select the Create Stems option and choose the layers you want to extract. Volume, pitch, pan levels for each stem can be adjusted individually or collectively for all four layers. Audio can also be cropped on an individual or global basis.

At present, MPC Stems only works in the desktop version of the MPC Software and is fully supported when used with MPC Live Series, MPC One, MPC One +, MPC X, MPC Xse, MPC Key 61, MPC Key 37, or MPC Studio Mk2 in Controller mode. To use stems in standalone mode, they must be created in the desktop software and then opened in standalone hardware using the saved project. The timeline for full standalone support has not been announced yet.

Unfortunately, this update is not free for existing users of the MPC Software; it requires a one-time payment of $10 through the Akai Store before it can be installed onto your device along with version 2.14 software/firmware update.
