Akai MPK61

The MPK61, from Akai, is a powerful combination of a 61-note semi-weighted keyboard, 16 MPC velocity-and-pressure-sensitive MPC pads, and 8 Q-Link faders with a total 72 assignable Q-Link controls. There’s also MPC swing and an arpeggiator that afford easy creation of melodic progressions. Additionally, the unit benefits from a key split function that allows the keyboard to be divided into two distinct zones for dual operation.

If all this wasn’t enough, the controller also includes Ableton Live Lite Akai Edition, which allows users to record, mix, compose, and revise musical ideas. Even more, it features USB bus power and plug-and-play connectivity, meaning it can be used in a variety of different environments without the need for additional connections or an external power supply.
