I Feel Bad for Loving The AKAI MPC Key 61

This is my review of the AKAI MPC Key 61 and I feel bad for loving it. I already have the MPC ONE & MPC Live 2. So who asked for this. Well, the keyboard workstation market is flooded with great workstation (Triton, Motif, ASR 10, Fantom, etc.). However, they lack in 2 areas. Which are the sequencer and the sampler! Some how AKAI manage to take the balls to put this on the market. Now you can decide on what's more important. Wait, did I mention there's new plugins too? Oh yeah!!! They manage to revamp the OS too while hiding that detail.

The Roland J-6 Synth & MPC ONE are a Problem!

Roland just released a $200 compact sized chord generator with Juno-6 sounds called the J-6. It's great but with the MPC ONE (and with a DAW) it's a whole problem! Love this combination to death. Let's take a deep dive into the features and what it can do with other stuff.

How "Epic" is the Captain Plugins VST?

Mixed in Key dropped a pretty huge update to their Captain Plugins bundle. Which includes Chords, Beats (drum lines), Bass (bka Deep), and more. I'll try Chords & Deep in FL Studio (it works in Ableton Live, Logic X, and few other DAWS on both Windows & MacOSX). Let me know how you feel about it in the comments below.

OP-1 Field - WTF is Teenage Engineering Smoking!?!

Teenage Engineering announced the OP-1 Field for $2000. Not that I have a problem with it but sheesh. They must of forgot they have serious competition now that didn't exist in 2013. Basically all the new features (minus the new speaker, screen, and type - c port) could be added to the older version. Last but not least, there's no time-stretching, dedicated undo function for the sequencer, & it barely has any internal memory (only 256 mb's in 2022). This would be a great deal in 1991..... What do you think??

Native Instruments linked up with Noah James Shebib (bka 40 Drake's producer & engineer) with his "Very Own" Kontakt play series expansion. It works in all DAWs both Windows & MacOSX. So, I'll show you how to use these sounds on my AKAI MPC Live II & MPC software. Both expansions are on sale right now for $100 (for both btw). Hurry up and get it because that's not a bad deal.
