CONSULTANCY: MPC Beats PCs. Modern Music Production. Minimal Outlay.

 



Powerful, fast computer music systems with a modern, beat orientated open ended production platform with masses of additional plug-ins and soundware starting from around £500*. 

PC computer music systems built around Akai Pro MPC Beats DAW (Digital Audio Workstation.) plus lots of additional instruments, effects and soundware giving you masses of creative options from day one. 

*core system with computer and software suite. Other hardware items and peripherals such as audio interfaces, microphones and keyboards are extra.

Here we'll take a look at some PC computer music systems with Akai Pro's MPC Beats as the 'core' music production platform. For a more detailed look at MPC Beats itself, check out my review below. 




If you're looking for a way into modern music production or EDM songwriting and recording then the MPC Beats is the perfect introduction, offering a modern 'beats based' way of working, on-board soundware and instruments, and an open ended architecture that supports third party instrument plug-ins.    

I provide consultancy designed to offer independent, high quality advice in order to supply the very best computer and audio hardware options for your MPC Beats based computer music setup. 

All software is installed and configured, as well as all supporting hardware drivers and software. All installed and working so you're ready to start creating instantly! 

MPC Beats offers an introductory level of sounds and instruments, but my systems come supplied with a range of additional plug in instruments and soundware that give serious creative options, and have you producing your dream tracks right from day one.  

So if you're in the market for your first or an upgraded computer music system then why not try something different to the usual 'music shop' option. Try an alternative. Someone committed to ensuring you have the right tools and system for your needs with ongoing support and updates. 

As an example, imagine a music PC with the following:

- A modern music production platform built around an industry standard MPC style drum instrument/machine
- A suite of great sounding effects processors covering everything that you need from vocal processing to guitar and instrument effects modelling. 
- Additional plug-in support so sound possibilities become endless.  
- A sample player instrument with an extensive library covering high quality versions of 'essential' sounds including piano, electric piano, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, organ, strings, etc.
- Thousands of additional drum sounds. Including 'essential electronic' sounds such as 'classic' TR606, 808, 909 as well as complete MPC collections. The collection includes:

                        Essential Electronic Drums.
                        Urban/Rap/Hip Hop Collection. 
                        Complete Akai MPC500
                        Complete Akai XR20.
                        Contemporary Production Classics. 
                        Production Kicks Collection. 
                        
                        The Ghost Machine vintage collection including.
                        Korg S3. 
                        Kawai R50/R50e.
                        Yamaha RX5.
                        Akai XR10.

- A collection of great sounding synthesizer plug-ins including:

A powerful analog monosynth for fat synth basses and cutting leads. 
Two amazing wavetable synthesizers with additional sound collections. Great for synth pads, electronic arpeggios, and plucked dance sounds. 
An analog polysynth emulator based upon the mighty classic Yamaha CS80 synthesizer. 

All this assembled and pre installed, so you immediately have creative options way beyond even the most expensive pre-packaged music production software and at a fraction of the cost. 

All achieved through years of experience and knowledge and certainly NOT through the use of cracked/illegal software. 

Akai Pro MPC Beats.


At the heart of the setup is MPC Beats. A fully featured DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) that can handle all music making applications, but is particularly geared towards modern loop-based dance music production. 






Built around an MPC style drum machine/instrument with powerful recording and editing, MPC Beats also offers a full suite of effects including reverb, delay, compression and EQ plug-ins, a really powerful sample editor for all your 'hits' and effects samples, and full integration with Akai Pro's range of controller keyboard/pad trigger units. 



The First Steps.......

In addition, you'll receive two hours of MPC Beats face to face, one to one training covering all the basic procedures and features. Once you've mastered the basics, the details come much more easily. Manuals for MPC Beats and the individual instruments are also pre-loaded onto your hard drive. 

Pricing.

Core systems are available from around £500 for laptop or desktop systems utilizing refurbished but still powerful, big brand up to date computer hardware. A desktop monitor would be an additional cost.

Brand new options are also available, with tried and tested hardware from HP, Sony, and Acer.   

Close attention is paid to computer specs including processor type, speed and age (min Core i5) as well as hard drive (256gb SSD) and RAM (min 8gb). 

Other items and peripherals would include audio interfaces, microphones, headphones, monitor (speakers) and keyboards from top manufacturers and suppliers such as Focusrite, Shure, Novation and Akai Pro themselves. Again high quality refurbished items are generally available offering incredible cost savings. 

It's starts with a conversation...........

Give me a call or email outlining your requirements and start the discussion. Once I have a solid idea of your requirements I can begin to research and suggest some suitable computer hardware alongside any additional hardware items you may require including audio interface, microphones and keyboards, etc. 

Once you're happy with my suggestions and information and give me the green light I'll proceed with obtaining the required hardware, configure your audio interface, and install and configure all your software and soundware elements. 

Two hours of initial MPC Beats training are available (if you're based in the local area) so you can confidently start on and focus on your music and art. 

But that's not the end of the story.........

Full telephone support is available for your system via my own personal mobile telephone number. 

Every quarter you'll receive my email updates with additional plug-in suggestions, new soundware and sample collections and general computer music news to keep your creative options fresh and varied. 

So if you're looking to enter the world of computer music why not contact me so I can let you know what I can offer. If you're a beginner, you'll get your own personal guide that will be with you every step of the way.
