Akai Professional LPK25

The Great-playing Keyboard You Can Take Everywhere!

If you like to take your ideas with you and refuse to be tied down to a desk, you just can't beat the Akai Professional LPK25 ultra-portable keyboard controller. Its small format lets it travel comfortably in the outer pocket of your laptop case, and you won't even notice its light weight design when you're on the move. You don't even have to lug around an AC adapter because the LPK25 runs completely off of USB buss power. Twenty five low-profile keys with real synth action give you plenty of immediate note access and playability, while the LPK25 remains shallow enough that you can comfortably reach your qwerty keyboard without accidentally bumping notes. Even if you're looking for a desktop MIDI controller, you're sure to appreciate the extra desk real estate you'll have because of the LPK25's tiny footprint. And the super-portable Akai Professional LPK25 goes well beyond the bounds of being a mere MIDI keyboard. In addition to its petite stature it's loaded with useful features. It has a killer arpeggiator, plus sustain, octave up, octave down, and tap tempo controls. And all you need to do in order to use this little controller keyboard is to plug it in, and the LPK25 will work instantly with your Mac or PC — plug-and-play compatibility means no fighting with extra drivers!

Control HQ for Your Music Rig

Part pad controller, part control surface, and completely ready to rock, Akai Professional's MPD226 lets you set up your music-creation to fit the way you like to work. It starts off with the same 16 MPC pads that have inspired music producers to recommend Akai Professional gear for decades, and it only goes uphill from there.

On the other side of the MPD226, there are four sliders, each with an assignable button and encoder. You can use these to set up track controls, ADSR envelopes, EQs, and much more. Top it off with classic MPC Note Repeat, dedicated transport controls, and a killer software package, and the MPD226 is a creative goldmine.
