Boxed Akai Professional MPK 225 USB keyboard pad controller Akai Professional announces four additions to its popular MPK USB keyboard/pad controller series the 25-key MPK225, is an update ultra-portable keyboard pad controller.
Housed in a slimmer, all-new design, each full-size model features RGB backlit trigger pads lifted straight from the MPC Renaissance and a 20-character LCD screen with comprehensive parameter feedback. Designed to erase the line between hardware control and software performance, the new MPK family also includes the ability to send QWERTY-style commands using soft-controls, a low-power mode for iOS connectivity via the Camera Connection Kit and enhanced response from the refined keybed.
I am in hospital at the moment so the demo software may not be in the box (you can download it from the internet or I will send you it when I come out hospital) It offers advanced music production using Ableton Live Lite and MPC Essentials.
