Is it possible, when using the MPC live without a computer, to be able to connect and use a midi keyboard controller and, if so how to connect and which keyboard is recommended?
Some of the Akai keyboards look good on paper but how good are they?
A simple 2 octave keyboard would be what I have in mind. :hmmm:

I use Akai Lpk25, very small, usb powered, 2 octaves, very nice keys.
Also check the new Novation one, also small but with some pads and faders.

Yes.

I have been looking at the Native Instruments M32. 3 octave and has a handful of buttons and encoders that can be mapped to the Live. It also comes with some software.
