is very nice

immerohnegott, music123

  • 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.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Good Quality

Akai MPK49 Rocks

29 January 2012
  • Summary: The Akai MPK49 is a controller, so it doesnt come with presets which is fine if you have FL studios or some other software installed onto your computer! It links with your software and completely cotomizable, so if you want your an Abino synth or something in your track, its easy to set and teak the...

Great build quality, easy to use, UPGRADE the pads

Brian, amazon.com
23 January 2012
  • Summary: As many other reviewers have been saying, the build quality of this product is great. Very sturdy, no rattling or flex. Connection and setup with FLStudio was a breeze (though I did need to hunt down some custom midi mappings). The feel of the keys is in line with what I expected.

Solid and Dependable

  • Summary: This is a great unit for the money. I've had mine for a few months now without any problems. The drum pads are a bit stiff, but I rarely use them so it's not a bother to me. The keys do feel a bit cheap, but they're very responsive. The wheels and knobs are what make this unit though.

Not what I thought, but in some ways better than I'd hoped for.

  • Summary: This device is most definitely NOT for any sort or amateur musician. When I bought this, I'm guessing there was either a great commission on the sale, or the employee at my local retailer just didn't know what he was talking about.

Akai controller

E. Johnson "high flyer", amazon.com
12 January 2011
  • Summary: Great product. Make sure you understand that it is a controller and nothing more. It must be connected to a laptop and an amp but cannot be used as a separate instrument.

Great keyboard, and the pads are much better than some would have you believe

Rob, amazon.com
24 November 2010
  • Summary: Out of the box, I admit that the pads feel pretty damn stiff. However, as I mentioned in a comment on another review of this product, you can work with this. You can turn up the sensitivity, lower the threshold, or change the pad curve.

Not very user friendly, not for a novice programmer.

Twiddly Diddly, amazon.com
18 April 2010
  • Summary: I spent 2 days reading and working with this unit only to send it back. Sonar 8 and the MPK49 should be easy to set up as they are supposed to 'support' each other but they don't. You need to map this yourself and even then it isn't able to realize it's full potential because Sonar doesn't play well...
