Akai Professional MPC KEY 61 Product Details

The Akai Professional MPC Key 61 is a revolutionary synthesizer keyboard, marking the next chapter in MPC history. Combining powerful sequencing with revolutionary sampling and high-quality virtual instruments, the MPC Key connects the world of production with the demands of professional live performance. From warm, natural piano sounds, to expressive string sections, to complex and deeply layered synth sounds, the MPC Key 61 delivers everything you could want from a state-of-the-art workstation. Combined with a large arsenal of modern and classic effects, ranging from simple channel strips and sidechain compression to complex pitch effects like Half Speed, the result is an unprecedented synergy for producers and live performers. The high-quality, semi-weighted keyboard reproduces even the finest nuances and, thanks to aftertouch and the comprehensive stand-alone workflow including touch strip, offers maximum control over your performance.

With Akai MPC Key 61, you'll experience a new dimension of sound. With 25 plug-in instrument engines at your disposal and more than 6000 innovative and classic presets, MPC Key 61 offers a deep and expressive selection of sounds integrated into a standalone production synthesizer. Each plug-in instrument offers advanced synthesis, deep parameter editing, and modern effects designed for an inspiring musical experience - all with a fast and dynamic touch interface for an intuitive and compelling workflow. Immerse yourself in a new world of sound.

This instrument features an expressive and playable semi-weighted keyboard with aftertouch for dynamic response and premium sound. Designed for musicians and producers, the MPC Key 61 combines cutting-edge technology and best practices from studio and stage situations to breathe inspiration into any performance. Created to create the best possible experience, the MPC Key 61 keyboard ingeniously blends every sound with the optimal feel. The 16 velocity-sensitive RGB pads on MPC Key 61 are the same award-winning pads found on MPC One. In addition to the legendary MPC Time Correct quantization, the MPC Key 61 now also features an easy and intuitive keyboard split system that allows you to distribute and layer different sounds on the keyboard.

Akai MPC Key 61 includes more than 100 state-of-the-art effects that can be used not only for mixing and mastering, but also for creative sound manipulation. Add spacious reverb & delay effects to your tracks, increase the punch of your drums with various compressors or use limiters or maximizers to refine your mix. Texture your sound with modern saturation and distortion effects like Flavor or Diode Clip. Experience plug-in effects like never before, only with MPC Key 61. MPC Key 61 also gives you modern vocal effect plug-ins that can be used for even the most creative sound design.

The built-in, assignable Touch Strip controller offers new ways to control, create and interact with your own distinctive sounds. Pitch bend and modulation wheels allow for more expression and take your compositions to a new level. Influence the notes of your synth and lead sounds in Fabric XL, add a slight vibrato to your strings in Session Strings, or set the tempo of your organ's Leslie speaker and modulate the tremolo effect for a wide-ranging, natural and expressive sound.

MPC Key 61 combines modern and classic studio features with an intuitive workflow. Connect up to 32 MIDI devices via USB with MIDI Multi, expand your audio I/O with 32 inputs and outputs using class compliant audio interfaces, or connect your vintage synthesizers via MIDI In/Out/Thru. 8 CV/Gate ports allow you to connect your modular accessories and more. Built-in WLAN/Bluetooth allows wireless syncing with Ableton Link as well as MPC OS updates, and an additional SATA drive bay expands storage for sounds and tracks virtually indefinitely.

It features an integrated 24-bit audio interface with high-end preamps and AD/DA converters. Individual gain knobs control the feed to the 6.3mm XLR/TRS combo inputs, including phantom power for condenser mics. 2 Main outputs, 2 Sub outputs, and an additional headphone output expand the connectivity options even further. Record pristine vocals and process them with the built-in AIR Vocal Suite, or record guitars, basses or any other instrument and take advantage of the extensive recording and sampling capabilities.

Get the most out of your MPC with the included MPC2 desktop DAW for Mac and PC, featuring increased track count and support for third-party AU/VST plug-ins. MPC2 is the optimal platform for limitless creative versatility with unprecedented precise control and integration with the MPC Key 61 system. Use it as a DAW or as a VST/AU plugin in third-party DAWs such as FL Studio, Logic, Ableton, Pro Tools, Studio One and more.

The powerful features of the Akai MPC Key 61 are designed for a seamless, standalone creative workflow. With 4GB of RAM, the MPC 2.11 operating system, a 32GB internal SD, a premium 16GB factory library, extensive connectivity, and a dedicated SATA slot for SSD expansion, the MPC Key 61 includes everything you need for modern music production.
