Three legendary electric pianos fully multisampled, with 80 sound patches, for the MPC X, MPC Live & all MPC Software controllers.
$29.99 USD


Electric Keys’ is a multisampled recreation of three legendary electric pianos from the 70s; the Fender Rhodes Mark II, Wurlitzer 200A and the Hohner Pianet N, containing 80 ready-to-play instrument patches for the MPC X, MPC Live, MPC Studio, MPC Renaissance & MPC Touch.

The classic electric piano sound is an essential part of any producer’s arsenal and with Electric Keys we set out to create truly usable and portable recreations of these classic machines directly inside your MPC.

Each instrument has been recorded over multiple dynamic levels to fully capture its original nuances and tone - simply load up a patch and instantly start adding authentic electric piano chords and riffs to your MPC beats.

There’s a total of 80 ready-made sound patches included, all fully configured and mapped across your pads to provide a wide range of ‘out-of-the-box’ sounds including timeless vibrato and tremolo set ups, gritty amp-driven emulations, lush chorus and phased sounds and experimental fx patches.

All patches can also be fully customised giving you control over many essential settings including tremolo and vibrato depth and rate, filters, effects and EQ. The Rhodes even includes an adjustable ‘tine’ control, a first for a native MPC Rhodes emulation.

Electric Keys is 100% ‘Certified for Standalone MPC, with all instruments built from native MPC keygroup programs utilising internal FX, filters and LFOs for all patches. All instruments perform identically in both ‘standalone’ and ‘controller’ modes, making them perfect for all MPC X & MPC Live owners.

The collection comes with two separate installers; a dedicated version for standalone use in the MPC X/MPC Live (Expansion thumbnail images supported if you run firmware 2.1) and a separate MPC Software Expansion installer for use in the Expansion Browser (compatible with both MPC Software 2.0 and 1.9), perfect for the MPC Studio, MPC Renaissance and MPC Touch.

Program previews are included for all patches, and everything is tagged for use in the MPC Software Media Browser.  Patches can be played using your pads or via an attached MIDI keyboard; all instruments are fully compatible with the MPCs ‘pad perform’ mode. Full installation & customisation instructions are given in the included 26 page User Guide.

Electric Keys is the first release in our new ‘MPC Instrument Foundations’ series, a range of standalone-friendly instruments built to take full advantage of the features available in the new generation of MPCs.
