Akai Professional MPC Key 61 Standalone Sampler and Sequencer

Hybrid Standalone Hardware DAW with Touch-screen, Velocity/pressure-sensitive Pads, Extensive I/O, 16GB of Storage, 61-key Controller, and MPC Software
Akai Professional has combined their legendary MPC platform with a keyboard workstation for the first time! The new MPC Key 61 is one of the most feature-packed standalone production tools ever produced. Akai's MPC changed music forever in the late '80s once pop and hip-hop luminaries got their hands on it, and this MPC Key 61 features refined versions of MPC tools with additional pressure-sensitive velocity pads, pad memory, 63 function buttons, and much more. Use the MPC Key 61 as a standalone workstation; a controller/input for DAWs, MIDI devices, or hardware synths; as a sampler; and almost anything else. The onboard LED display features a spacious 8.5-inch x 5.5-inch touchscreen that can be set flat or upright to suit your playing, and the MPC’s 16GB flash storage comes loaded with 10GB of pre-installed content ready for use right out of the box. Plus, it’s easy to expand the MPC’s storage thanks to a built-in drive bay for solid-state or hard disk drives
