    MPC x Keyboard Synthesizer 

    The now-legendary MPC's sample-based workflow is widely regarded as one of the most innovative music production tools ever created - and it's all available to you here in its modern, standalone guise. Utilise the velocity-sensitive 16 RGB MPC drum pads (featuring note repeat and aftertouch) to craft booming beats with unrivalled ease. Then shape your sounds further with a range of instrument/mixing plugins and editing functions. 

    Complimenting the MPC is a 61 semi-weighted keybed, featuring aftertouch and velocity. This is the bedrock of the instrument, allowing your musical ideas to really come to life. The keys are bolstered by an assignable touch strip, opening up entirely new creative avenues for sound generation and manipulation. 

    Sound Library 

    You'll be able to harness a wide variety of sounds, choosing from 25 entirely unique instrument plugins. These run the gamut from more traditional acoustic sounds, to bleeding-edge, futuristic tones. You'll be more than prepared for any kind of music-based curveball. 

    From the Stage Piano selection - including astounding recreations of a Bechstein upright and Steinway grand -, Stage EP - with its Wurlitzer, Rhodes and FM electric piano - or Session Strings - offering violins and other orchestral instruments (in both solo and ensemble formats) - there's plenty of sonic material here for you to play around with.  

    And if you're more synth-inclined, explore the possibilities of OPx4, delivering that iconic FM sound, or dive head first into Fabric XL and its versatile sampled acoustic instruments and synth-engines.  

    Studio Integration 

    Thanks to an incredibly flexible selection of I/O, you'll be able to make the MPC Key 61 the centrepiece of your studio. Hook up your audio interface, storage device and MIDI controller via the class compliant USB ports, or connect synth and modular equipment using the CV and gate outputs for some sensational sound design.

    Brilliant. Much better than the sun if it’s parts. Had an MPC Live II and a high end workstation keyboard. Traded both for this. So much better! Only niggle is quite spring keybed action but soon got used to it and now I love it.
