Akai announces MPK 25
Akai Professional has announced the MPK 25, the latest addition to its MPK series of keyboard controllers with MPC pads.
The MPK25 is a portable keyboard controller with MPC production controls. The MPK25 scales down the keyboard by 24 keys, retaining the utility, capability, and flexibility that makes the MPK series one of a kind.
