Akai Professional MPC Key 37 Standalone Production Keyboard

Introducing the Akai Professional MPC Key 37. It’s a standalone keyboard workstation that has everything you need to produce music out of the box. The iconic MPC range has been the centerpiece of beatmaker and producer studios for over three decades. Now, MPC Key 37 delivers an advanced production platform that combines sampling, sequencing, and synthesis into a lightning-fast workflow.

Additionally, the MPC Key 37 combines the familiar 16-pad grid layout with a synth-action 37 note keybed. It’s fueled by legendary MPC sounds and instruments along with all the connectivity you need.

Sound

MPC Key 37 ships with a core collection of sounds and samples from Akai MPC’s industry-standard plugins. Enjoy 8 plug-in instruments out of the box including Hype, Odyssey, Mellotron and more. Also, there are over 8GB of production-ready samples and drum kits, offering over 1000 production-ready presets.

Each plugin instrument features advanced synthesis, deep parameter editing, and effects for programming the exact sounds your productions need. With 32GB of internal storage, there is enough space to expand your sample and instrument library. Furthermore, add removable media via SD Card and USB.

Effects

MPC Key 37 includes over 100 powerful studio-quality effects for creative production and mixing. Insert lush Reverb & Delay effects into your tracks. Furthermore, add bounce and punch to your drums and mix using modern or vintage-style compressors and limiters. MPC Key 37 also ships with cutting-edge vocal FX plugins. Specifically, they’re great for straight vocals or creative sound design.

MPC Key 37 Control Surface

The MPC Key 37 features a synth action key-bed with aftertouch, alongside dedicated pitch and modulation wheels. In fact, the synth-style keyboard action has been designed with players and producers in mind with responsive feel for tracking basslines, rocking out synth leads, and more.

The 16 velocity sensitive RGB pads are the same as on the award-winning MPC One+ with access to the renowned MPC Time Correct, Swing, and Quantize features that continue to inspire producers at the top of the industry. Tweaking and editing take place on the 7” multi-touch display and 4 Q Link knobs, giving you fine control as well as quick access to the parameters you need at your fingertips.

Connectivity

MPC Key 37 is a powerful hub for your outboard gear. Connect MIDI devices via USB or using the MIDI DIN In/Out ports seamlessly. Integrate modular rigs into your MPC workflow via the 4 TRS CV/Gate outputs. Onboard Wi-Fi/Bluetooth allows for wireless synchronization with Ableton Link, wireless MIDI on supported iOS devices, and MPC OS Updates.

Also, expand your storage capacity with the SD Card Reader for convenient access to your growing library of sounds and tracks.
