Product Description

THE POWER OF SOUND
Introducing the Akai Professional MPC Key 61, the revolutionary new standalone production synthesizer keyboard powering the next chapter of the MPC legacy. Building on the history of powerful sequencing and revolutionary sampling, MPC Key 61 adds the most advanced next-generation virtual instruments and effects to MPC, adding to its arsenal of industry-leading music production tools. And now, with the addition of a 61-key semi-weighted keybed with aftertouch, the MPC experience ascends to an unprecedented level of creative interaction and expression, delivering the world’s most powerful and complete standalone workflow.

KEYS TO EXPRESSION
The MPC Key 61 features an incredibly expressive and playable semi-weighted keybed with aftertouch to drive its world-class sounds with dynamic responsive control. With players and producers in mind, technology and artisanship were combined to breathe inspiration into every performance. The MPC Key 61’s keybed is designed to deliver the highest performance experience possible connecting the dots between sound and feel.

PLUGIN TO A WORLD OF EFFECTS
MPC Key 61 includes over 100 state-of-the-art effects ready to load across your music productions for mixing and mastering. Insert lush and spacious Reverb & Delay effects to your tracks, add bounce and punch to your drums and mix using modern or vintage style compressors and limiters. Experience plugin FX like never before only inside MPC Key 61.

PERFECT TUNE & HARMONY
MPC Key 61 is the world's first production synthesizer incorporating modern day vocal FX plugins which can also be used for the most creative sound design. Fully record and mix the perfect vocals directly inside MPC Key 61’s standalone environment with 2 onboard high-end preamps. From modern-day vocal tuning FX, to doubling, to adding 4-part harmonies to your vocals—the AIR Vocal Suite delivers.

TOUCH STRIP FOR HANDS-ON CONTROL
The onboard assignable Touch Strip Controller is a catalyst for new ways to control, create and interact with your own signature sounds. Bend, warp and manipulate sounds in real-time in ways no other synthesizer can. Touch capacitive assignable real-time Q-Link controls also allow for endless artistic ingenuity opening worlds of new creative energy for production and performance.

DYNAMIC EXPRESSION
Dedicated Pitch Bend and Modulation Wheels mean an added touch of expression to elevate your compositions. Bend the notes of your synth and lead sounds in Fabric XL, add gentle vibrato to your stringed instruments in Session Strings, or dial in the speed of the Organ’s rotary Leslie cabinet and hear your parts swell with a wide chorused tremolo. The Mod and Pitch wheels bring depth and dimension to any MPC Key 61 keyboard part.
