The MPK49, the first performance controller to merge MPC pads and MPC technologies with a chromatic keyboard, is the hottest keyboard controller for musicians and producers. Now, Remix Magazine's 2009 Technology Award winner has several new siblings.
PIANO-ACTION PRODUCTION POWERHOUSE
The Akai Professional MPK88 is a professional performance keyboard controller with MPC production controls. The MPK88 draws on the design of the popular MPK49, the first keyboard ever to feature MPC pads. This first-of-its-kind keyboard is ideal for performance, starting with a premium, fully weighted, hammer-action keyboard, adding MPC pads, Q-Link controls, and a selection of MPC technologies. The MPK88 is born for the stage and is equally at home in the studio. Learn more about the MPK88 on its page.
USB/MIDI KEYBOARD CONTROLLER
Fully loaded for studio and stage.
Producers, performers and DJs will appreciate the MPK61ís mix of 61 semi-weighted keys with aftertouch, 16 MPC pads with velocity and pressure sensitivity, 72 assignable Q-Link controllers, MPC Note Repeat, MPC Swing and an arpeggiator. The MPK61ís size is ideal for performers who need a larger keyboard than the original 49-key MPK49 offers, but also prefer the lighter weight and associated portability of a semi-weighted keyboard. The MPK61 retains the key split features from the MPK88, enabling you to divide the keyboard into two zones for performing with two different programs at once. The MPK61 web page has more details.
PERFORMANCE CONTROLLER WITH 12 MPC PADS
The MPK49 turns heads in studios and on stage because it takes some of the best technologies and controls from the legendary MPC series and houses them in a 49-key keyboard controller. You can quickly create melodies, bassline, and more with the semi-weighted keyboard with aftertouch for expressive melodic control. Create great-feeling drum and other sample-based tracks with the 12 genuine MPC pads, which are pressure and velocity sensitive to capture every nuance of your creativity.
