Amazing controller

  • Summary: This keyboard is truly amazing. Upon researching for a new controller I tested all of the usual suspects and landed on the Akai MPK61. Compared to the others this keyboard had the most professional feel. The pads are exceptional and the automapping to the DAW of your choice could not be any easier.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Good Quality
  • Cons: Some Mappings Are Tricky

  • Excerpt: I use the product for producing, utilizing both the keys and the MPC pads. I love the feel of the pitch bend and modulation. very solid. the knobs and all the controls are very solid as well. the keys work great and take a little getting used to if you normally use fully weighted keys.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Portable, Responsive / Good Action
  • Cons: No Speakers, Shallow Mpc Pads

  • Excerpt: This is one of the greteast buys i have ever bought. Great product for a producer. I use it with Live and i am still learning the things it does. Drum pads are a big plus especially when you are a rap/hip-hop producer, with all 16 pads like the original MPC.
  • Pros: Easy To Collaborate Across Programs, Easy to Customize, Easy to Navigate, Versatile
