  • Excerpt: To be brief, This keyboard has lots of goodies on it, arpeggiator, plenty of switches and stuff, and the wheels feel nice... HOWEVER:It's really cheap. The knobs and sliders feel like they might break off in your hand, and the keys on the keyboard feel kinda inconsistent, some of them are harder to press than others sometimes, it just feels a little stiff.

Akai MPK49 USB/MIDI Controller With Drum Pads

27 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Akai have released another high end entry into the MIDI controller fray in the form of the MPK49 which boasts 12 MPC Drum Pads and a 49-key semi-weighted keyboard with aftertouch in addition to the usual combination of knobs and faders totaling up to 76 assignable controls. It’s in the same ballpark as the Novation Remote SL series and those drum pads could just place it first for many musicians.
