Akai Pro has announced a new free music-making software called MPC Beats. Inspired by the functionality of their classic samplers and groove machines, MPC Beats is a free download and features the same swing and programming from the original as well as 2GB of sample content to get you started. 

MPC Beats also features three built-in instrument plugins and a piano roll for writing bassline and melodies and the software works with all class-compliant USB MIDI controllers. There are also 80 FX plugins to shape your sound once you’ve got the beat nailed.
