PERFECT TUNE & HARMONY

Fully record and mix the perfect vocals directly inside MPC Key 61’s standalone environment with 2 onboard high-end preamps. From modern-day vocal tuning FX, to doubling, to adding 4-part harmonies to your vocals—the AIR Vocal Suite delivers.

TOUCH STRIP FOR HANDS-ON CONTROL

The onboard assignable Touch Strip Controller is a catalyst for new ways to control, create and interact with your own signature sounds.
