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

Solid MIDI Keyboard

MindPhlux, B&H Photo
25 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Have been wanting a MIDI keyboard for ages, and was debating between the Novation SL49 MKII and this one. Finally decided on this one because A. I wouldn't have to use external software for ableton (IE, Automap) and B. Price. I think I would have been happy with either unit.
  • Pros: Ableton compatibility, Easy to Use, Portable
  • Cons: Poor Action

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

Mr. Pwn, amazon.com
21 December 2011
  • 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.

Matthew Brown "Thew", amazon.com
27 October 2011
  • 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.
