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. It is the tool of choice for beatmakers across the globe. 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. The Akai MPC Key 61 takes that rich history and innovative spirit to write the next chapter of MPC.

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 multisample 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.
