AKAI LPK25 Midi Keyboard

16 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Portable and durable. I am a producer/songwriter that travels a lot and the size and weight of the Akai LPK25 is just perfect. The Akai LPK25 has a built in sustain, and arpeggiator. I use it for logic pro x and connectivity was extremley easy. Also comes with a Akai LPK25 editor cd program to edit every sequence in your midi keyboard. Overall its a great product for on the go music creators.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: none, No volume control

Seriously Handy

R.V., B&H Photo
30 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Just plug and play. The-built in arpeggiator is a pretty spiffy touch. The software you can install with the controller is --on a graphics level--really shabby but otherwise functions well. Having little opportunity to use the bigger M-Audio Axiom controller I have meant I had to get something that would appear and dissappear as fast as possible. And I found the LPK25 to be the most affordable, highest rated mini keyboard controller possible.

Perfect small USB keyboard!

18 April 2013
  • Excerpt: If you're looking for a small USB keyboard to use for home recording, look no further. The LPK25 is perfect to use when space is limited or you're on the go. I've been using an M-Audio Axiom 25 for some years and bought this little gem to replace it in my home studio because of space constraints. I couldn't be happier. My primary use for this keyboard at home is to lay down drum, bass, and accompaniment tracks in Reason.

Great Entry Tool

  • Excerpt: I am just entering into the world of using VST samplers to build parts to songs that I will sing and play guitar over. This was an economical choice that I bought based off of other reviews. It was instantly recognized by my Windows computer and Reaper making setup very easy. The biggest adjustment is learning the touch response fo the keys.

25 Reasons To Buy

LorneR, B&H Photo
8 November 2012
  • Excerpt: I am not a musician, but I bought this 25 key mini-midi keyboard because I mess with audio programs. I didn't know how to evaluate it. It was easy to use, just plugged it in and started playing (well kind of playing). Then I had a musician friend try it. I was afraid that because it was so small and inexpensive, he would criticize it. He immediately started playing (really playing) and we both were impressed.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to store, Easy To Use, Lightweight

LPK25 USB LAPTOP PERFORMANCE KEYBOARD

  • Excerpt: I use this product to compose music from my laptop. It is fantastic! It is small, lightweight and fits inside of a laptop bag. I can access instruments stored in my laptop that require midi information. I have nothing against it at all. The sensativity of the keys is fantastic. I would recommend this to any musician of ANY skill level.

This little keyboard

  • Excerpt: I love my lpk25, i've had it for no more then a month now and i love it! It was super easy to use, plug it in and bam, change the setting in the program you are using and you now have keyboard. Awesome awesome awesome... and it came pretty quick so i couldn't wait to use it. I would definitely recommend it, if you are just looking for a basic attachment to your setup, a quick keyboard to use or if you are on the road and wanted to produce.

Bang For the Buck

17 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I'm using this as a keyboard controller for Ableton Live. This is quite an improvement over fiddling with my laptop's keys to check out various notes / sounds. The workflow is definitely much smoother with this keyboard. The action on the keys is a little tricky to get used to. They seem to be single-sprung, but the springs are rather stiff. I hope they loosen up a bit over time. Of course, I'm new to the world of keyboards, so maybe this is normal.

Works Great!

Sumo Blanco, B&H Photo
18 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The reason I gave the LPK25 - USB Laptop Keyboard 5 stars is because it lives up to what it is supposed to do. It is compact, durable, and the keys have a reasonably professional feel for a MIDI keyboard in this price range. I needed LPK25 so I could compose and remix electronic music on the go. I am a DJ and I needed something compact to connect to Ableton Live so that I could more easily add synth, pads, etc.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Limited Functions
