Producers, performers and DJs will appreciate the MPK61’s mix of 61 semi weighted keys with aftertouch, 16 MPC pads with velocity and pressure sensitivity, 72 assignable Q Link controllers, MPC Note Repeat, MPC Swing and an arpeggiator. The MPK61’s size is ideal for performers who need a larger keyboard than the original 49 key MPK49 offers, but also prefer the lighter weight and associated portability of a semi weighted keyboard. The MPK61 retains the key split features from the MPK88, enabling you to divide the keyboard into two zones for performing with two different programs at once.

Like its 25, 49 and fully weighted 88 key siblings – the MPK25, MPK49 and MPK88, respectively – the MPK61 empowers you to create and manipulate melodic, harmonic and rhythmic content and inspires creative production with its arpeggiator, MPC Swing and MPC Note Repeat technologies.

The MPK61 comes with Ableton Live Lite Akai Edition software, one of the most popular and powerful performance and production programs worldwide. Ableton Live Lite enables musicians to spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise and edit musical ideas in a seamless audio/MIDI environment. The MPK61 is a MIDI controller that sends MIDI data over USB for plug and play performance with Mac and PC. Because they are MIDI compliant, the MPK series works with virtually all MIDI recording, sequencing, and performance software for musical performers from keyboard players to producers to DJs and VJs.

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
My 13 pound cat jumps all over it, nothing has broken. Going to get one of those pad upgrade kits, hear it's a major improvement on pad sensitivity.
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The new model came out today, and I looked it over and decided that this one is better and more useful. This one has the old school analog look and feel and seems to have more easy access features that the new one is missing.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Easy to pick up and move around. Still feels like it's made well, but not so heavy as the 88 key.
Value
Was this item an overall good value?
Kind of pricy, but compared to one $250 I'm happy to get this. I had a cheap one before and talk about problems.
