Akai introduces 'MPC Beats' music-making software for beginners

  Akai introduces 'MPC Beats' music-making software for beginners If you’re looking for free music production software, Akai might not be the first name that comes to mind, but today it’s announcing exactly that — a streamlined digital audio workstation (DAW) called MPC Beats. You likely know Akai more for its button-mashing production gear like the MPC series, but it does have software chops too. Not only do the higher-end MPCs effectively come with a DAW built-in, Akai already offers desktop software that’s similar to the likes of FL Studio and Logic Pro, albeit at a cost.MPC Beats looks like it takes the guts of Akai’s existing desktop software and boils it down to the essentials, but for the price of free, it looks pretty good.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Walkoff grand slams are becoming such old hat for the Oakland Athletics this season that they have learned to celebrate in a more socially distant manner.

Stephen Piscotty hit Oakland's second game-ending slam of the year and the A's beat the Texas Rangers 5-1 Tuesday night for their fourth straight win.

MLB's first extra-innings game under new rules produced a walkoff grand slam

  MLB's first extra-innings game under new rules produced a walkoff grand slam The MLB has made several changes to the game for the 2020 season, from the new expanded playoffs system, to the adoption of a universal designated hitter, to a new extra-innings format designed to prevent games from stretching on for too long. In 2020, each half of an extra inning will begin with a runner on second base. With the Angels and A’s tied 3-3 after 9 in Oakland, Los Angeles was unable to drive in Shohei Ohtani from second base, handing the advantage back to the A’s.

Piscotty suffered an intercostal strain in late February and had been in line for a possible injured list stint had the season started on time, but he looks good to Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that an MRI on Stephen Piscotty ' s left intercostal muscle came back "a little worse" than expected.

''It's a lot of fun,'' Piscotty said. ''Pretty unique for that to happen in such a short amount of time. It's a lot of fun celebrating like that.''

The A's even toned down their celebration after getting some heat for failing to socially distance when mobbing Matt Olson after his opening night slam against the Angels.

Piscotty got some high-fives and a Gatorade shower but his teammates mostly kept their distance.

''I think we'd all seen a few walkoff homers and the way other teams were doing it,'' Piscotty said. ''Trying to be a little more distant there. Hard to control the emotions but we did a decent job I think.''

The late-game theatrics helped the A's win on a night when prized pitching prospect Jesus Luzardo pitched five scoreless innings in his first career start for Oakland and Texas starter Lance Lynn allowed first run of the season.

Edinson Volquez (0-1) got into trouble quickly in the ninth inning when he walked two batters and gave up a hit to load the bases with nobody out.

Volquez retired Robbie Grossman on a popup before Piscotty hit a first-pitch drive off Jesse Chavez over the wall in center to help the A's become the 17th team with two walkoff slams in the same season.

Stephen Piscotty homered and Oakland rallied from an early three-run deficit to beat the Texas Rangers 7-3 on Sunday, the Athletics' fourth straight win and sixth in seven games. Matt Olson had two hits including a double for the A ' s , who are 30 games over .500 (87-57) for the first time since closing

''It stings a lot,'' manager Chris Woodward said. ''We had a lot of our best pitchers pitching, obviously Lance threw a heck of a game. ... Unfortunately we didn't get it done in the ninth inning.''

The Rangers had taken the lead an inning earlier on an RBI double by Todd Frazier.

The ending helped make it a celebratory night for Luzardo. The 22-year-old lefty was the youngest A's pitcher to start a game since Brett Anderson in 2010 and lived up to the hype.

The wait was worth it as he was dazzling in his debut. He overpowered the Rangers at times, striking out Joey Gallo on a 96 mph to end the first.

''He was terrific,'' manager Bob Melvin said. ''He certainly did his job. Comes as advertised. Three plus plus pitches. Terrific velocity and terrific movement.''

Luzardo also showed off his athleticism in the field with a nifty play on a high-hopper to retire Scott Heineman to end the second.

Luzardo allowed just two hits and two walks with five strikeouts.

UNCONVENTIONAL STRATEGY

The Rangers opened the scoring in the sixth with a bit of an unconventional strategy. With two outs and nobody on, No. 3 hitter Gallo bunted away from the shift for a single off Yusmeiro Petit. The move paid off when Todd Frazier followed with an RBI double.

SOUVENIR

Bird ended up making a nice play even after going on the injured list. He caught a foul pop in his hat while sitting in the stands during an at-bat by Frazier in the sixth inning.

UP NEXT

Rangers RHP Kyle Gibson (0-1, 0.00 ERA) took a tough loss last Tuesday in his first start of the year as the Diamondbacks scored three unearned runs in a 4-1 victory. The A's oppose with lefty Sean Manaea (0-2, 7.00), who tries again for his first victory of the season.
