Akai MPC Key 61 - Standalone Synthesizer Keyboard

Combining the legend of MPC, a massive plugin instrument offering, and a semi-weighted 61-key keybed, the first-ever MPC keyboard is a monumental achievement in standalone music technology and a powerfully versatile tool for the music creative of today.

The MPC Tradition
MPC has been a mainstay of contemporary production for decades. The lock-tight sequencing and precise
sampling workflow have defined chart-topping hip hop, pop, and electronic music throughout the years. The standalone MPC platform has built on that rich history with innovative mixing and instrument plugins, an intuitive user interface, and a wealth of technology that embraces the modern music producer. MPC Key 61 takes that rich history and innovative spirit to write the next chapter of MPC.

The Power of Sound
At the heart of MPC Key 61 are the sounds including 25 unique plugin instruments with the most modern sound design textures and tonality for all genres of music. From timeless acoustic to futuristic synth, the full sonic capability of MPC Key 61 runs the harmonic spectrum.

Fabric XL is the flagship power synthesizer offering the most dynamic and powerful synth-engines and sampled acoustic instruments for contemporary music production. Fabric XL’s wide selection of presets are powered by a revolutionary multi-sample based synthesis engine for cutting-edge performance and sound.

OPx4, a powerful 4-operator FM Synthesizer engine gives you the classic sound of FM at your fingertips. Built around an elegant interface, you can dive into a whole new world of sound design, effects and parameters to truly make it your own.

Stage Piano, Session Strings, Stage EP, and Organ offer world-class sounds of acoustic and electromechanical instrument plugins. Stage Piano is an extraordinary collection including a Steinway® grand and Bechstein® upright for a complete lineup of rich piano tone. Session Strings is an elaborate group of orchestral instruments destined to be a secret weapon in the composer’s toolbox. From delicate solo violins to formidable ensembles
of bowed instrumentation, Session Strings delivers everything needed to create stringed layers of depth and dimension. Stage EP’s tone is meticulously true to all the classic keyboards such as Rhodes, FM Electric Piano, Wurlitzer® and more, while the Organ plugin screams through its Leslie speaker simulation with the very soul and spirit of the mighty B3.

The Complete MPC Package
MPC Key 61 is the first MPC to introduce a 61 semi-weighted keybed with velocity and aftertouch, making the new plugin instruments come to life. With 2 onboard high-end mic preamps and AD/DA converters along with phantom power, MPC Key 61 delivers the full MPC sampling experience while also introducing new ways to morph, shape and define your signature sounds with the assignable Touch Strip controller and Q-LINK knobs.
From customizing personalized sounds, to composing and fully recording harmonic and melodic ideas, to delivering final productions—MPC Key 61 is the most complete music production tool in the industry for modern music creators.

16 velocity-sensitive RGB drum pads with aftertouch offer the world-renowned MPC beat making and rhythmic experience that is second to none. With an onboard Transport, lay down rhythms and sequences with an effortless workflow. Go from intuitively browsing the thousands of sound presets on the beautiful 7-inch multi-gesture colour display, to quickly sequencing ideas and finalizing them with premium effects from award-winning AIR
Music Tech. Assign and control all effect parameters with the (4) 360 rotary Q-LINK knobs, perfect for writing real-time automation.

With a wide selection of I/O, MPC Key 61 integrates seamlessly into any studio environment. Use the Class Compliant USB ports to connect devices such as MIDI controllers, audio interfaces, or removable storage. (8) 3.5mm CV/Gate outputs provide plenty of room to plug into your modular and synth gear, and dedicated Pitch Bend/Mod Wheels add expanded control, depth and texture. The onboard TRS ¼” audio outputs can be configured as dual-stereo or four-mono signal paths while the two XLR/¼” inch combination inputs enable sampling and recording from Mic, Instrument, or Line-level sources via the ultra-clean preamps and premium AD/DA converters.
