Akai MPK49 review

The Mechanic, B&H Photo
7 April 2013
  • Excerpt: PROS right out the box I was impressed with the construction and feel of the mpk49. It felt very sturdy and a good hefty feel to it. The semi weighted keys are nice and solid good response. The sliders and knobs have a good tactile feel and all the buttons have a nice click to them. The design and layout of very things flows very nicely CONS of course having the maschine Mk2 comparing the pads to the mpk49 they are just not up to par.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys
  • Cons: Pads No Good

is very nice

  • Summary: First off, this guy seems to be put together by people who make tanks. Build quality is, in a word, substantial. The keys feel good, though I've gotten used to my girlfriend's digital piano, which has fully-weighted keys. Along that same line, I found the velocity curve on the keys a little funky compared to the piano's, but it isn't something I can't get used to. Would be nice to have more control over it than a simple On/Off toggle.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Good Quality

It doesn't matter what handicap you have

  • Excerpt: First and lasting impressions: Solid, weighty controller definitely confirms it is a quality unit. Sturdy knobs and sliders, the keys have a delightful solid weight to them. Plug and play in most cases. I use it to produce music in FL Studio. Does not come with any FL studio presets, but after a short learning curve (first controller ever bought) getting my own preset mapped out did not take more than a few minutes.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Responsive / Good Action, Solid, Touch Sensitive Keys
