The Concert Grand Expansion Pack’ (Legacy MPC Edition) is an absolutely stunning recreation of the majestic Steinway Concert Grand (Model D), packaged with an indispensable collection of MIDI resources and fully optimised for use in legacy MPCs.

The instrument features fully chromatic sampling with 4 dynamic layers per pad (velocity switched between soft, medium, medium-soft and hard) - the result is an incredibly rich and organic piano experience unlike any you'll ever hear within an MPC.

The collection includes memory-optimised programs for the MPC1000, MPC2500, MPC5000, MPC500 and MPC4000 which utilise ultra-realistic 4 dynamic levels per pad! Here’s the ‘compact’ version of Für Elise, as played in an MPC1000

And we’ve even managed to create an even smaller 10MB version for MPC2000/XL owners that uses a single dynamic layer which still sounds awesome - and we also include 20 MIDI themes in both SEQ and MIDI file format - check out the Legacy MPC Installation Guide for more details.

The majestic & expressive Concert Grand from, destined to be the new ‘go-to’ piano for all MPC producers and available exclusively from

Product FAQs

How do I install this Expansion Pack in my MPC?

MPC Live & MPC X users should just copy the provided 'standalone' folder to their MPC disk; you can then access all the programs and sequences from the Browser. Read more about transferring samplepacks to the MPC X/Live.

MPC Software users should drag and drop the provided 'XPN' installer into the MPC Software and select 'Import'. After installation the expansion can be accessed from the Expansion Browser. MIDI progressions are simply copied to the 'Progressions' folder on your system drive - read the MPC Software Installation Guide.

How much memory does this take up in an MPC X/Live?

The full version of the piano takes up approximately 180MB. The 'compact' version takes up approximately 60MB

What are multisamples and what can I do with them?

Multisamples involve sampling many notes from an instrument and mapping out these notes into MPC programs - the result is a very realistic recreation of the original instrument mapped out across the pads in your MPC. You can then create your own realistic loops, riffs and solos using only your MPC.

How easy is it to use multisamples in my MPC?

Very easy. Just load up a mulisample program just like you would any other program. Now just bash the pads and create your own unique loops and solos! And if you prefer playing with a MIDI keyboard, no problem - just connect the keyboard MIDI out to the MPC MIDI in and play the keyboard keys - your realistic multisample sounds will be output from your MPC (we've even re-ordered all pads so they match standard chromatic order on keyboards).

Do you add effects to your multisamples?

Definitely not. It is important that professional multisamples are presented 'dry', with no delay effects (e.g. reverb, chorus, delay etc). This ensures you have maximum control over the multsamples, leaving you to add whatever effects you wish to your multisample performances.
