Akai has announced the availability of the MPC Key 37, a dynamic standalone MPC desktop synthesizer. It features onboard sampling, plugin instruments, insert effects as well as Splice integration.
Akai designed the MPC Key 37 with a three-octave full-size keybed to provide users with a balance between playing chords and performing melodies.

According to Akai, the MPC Key 37 offers flagship power and performance with a robust processing core for sampling and sequencing. It has a 7” touch screen to chop loops and samples users can easily drag and trim samples with a finger. For expressive beat-making, the MPC Key 37 features responsive velocity-sensitive RGB pads laid out in an iconic four-by-four grid. For connectivity, the MPC Key 37 offers stereo ¼-inch inputs and outputs, Direct USB Midi, 5-pin MIDI In/MIDI Out, four TRS CV/Gate output jacks, and a USB Host port. Since it is both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled, users can control playback across mobile, laptop, and standalone hardware devices without the need for cables.
