New Akai MPC KEY 61 leak, Photos show packaging of the new MPC Synthesizer Keyboard


Akai MPC Key 61, a five-octave portable MPC production studio appears to be on the way


Synth Anatomy has been following what is a fairly lengthy trail of leaks pretty closely, the latest of which focuses on what appears to be the packaging for this “standalone MPC synthesizer keyboard”. Presumably, this will run the same software as the pad-based MPCs, and could be useful for both studio-based beatmaking and live performance.


As well as the 61 keys, this new addition of the MPC family looks set to include the familiar bank of pads, a screen and various other controls. It’s also appeared in Instagram posts from producer Scott Storch, who we assumed has a pre-release unit for beta testing.


We are waiting for Akai Pro to make an official announcement. The big reveal might happen soon, so watch the Akai Pro website.
