Akai 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. Its smaller, more portable size makes the MPK25 the perfect travel companion. Its small footprint can fit in your lap on the couch or on a plane, enabling you to create tracks whenever inspiration strikes. All you need is your laptop and the MPK25.

MPK 25 features

  • 25-key semi-weighted keyboard with aftertouch for expressive melodic creativity.
  • MPC-pad section of 12 genuine MPC pads with pressure and velocity sensitivity.
  • MPC pads access four banks each for instant access to 48 samples.
  • Assignable Q-Link controller section for flexible control of most software parameters.
  • Two banks of 12 Q-Link knobs and four buttons, two banks each.
  • Dedicated transport controls for tracking and editing.
  • MPC Note Repeat, MPC Swing, and arpeggiator aid in creative process.
  • MPC Full Level, MPC 12-Level, Tap Tempo, and Time Division assist with tempo and dynamics.
  • MIDI output over USB, bus powered, class compliant: plug and play with one USB cable.
  • Comes with Ableton Live Lite Akai Edition software.

    I’ve used one of these and the pads really are like the MPC’s but the knobs feel a bit cheap.
