An image posted on Reddit (opens in new tab) shows what appears to be the design of the MPC Live II. Although this doesn’t look massively different to the original, there are a few more buttons and an extra knob, and what appears to be an armrest down at the front.
What’s more, the rear view indicates that the MPC Live II will have CV outputs - as seen on the new MPC One, which was announced earlier this year - meaning that it could be used to control vintage and modular analogue synths.
Of course, there’s nothing to guarantee that this is a real image, but the fact that it suggests an iterative update rather than a wholesale redesign adds to its legitimacy. We suspect that it’d run the same software as its predecessor.
More news if and when it comes in.
