Classic functions such as MPC Note Repeat, Swing and transport controls feature on board, as well as an integrated pop up display. The MPC Renaissance features a four channel USB 2.0 audio interface, as well as two XLR-1/4" combo inputs and a dedicated turntable input. The output of the MPC Renaissance can be modelled to offer the vintage output character of the MPC3000, MPC60 and much more.
