"Absolutely Remarkable"

By Phil N in Uniontown, PA, zzounds.com
9 March 2012
  • Excerpt: The semi-weighted keys are a significant plus. They allow for the most expression with strings/pianos but still have great flow for guitar/synth leads. The pads are also velocity sensitive, but I feel (as most others do) that they are very stiff. I only use them on the "Full Level" setting for drums and samples though. The stiffness in this regard means nothing to me, but may effect some others opinions of the board.

Akai living up to their expectations

  • 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. IF you are even thinking about buying this item. Dont hesitate buy it.

Great Keyboard Controller

Ed, B&H Photo
27 November 2011
  • Excerpt: I bought this Keyboard to use with Reason and It works better than I expected. I just plugged it into my Mac selected the MPK 49 in the Reason Akai instrument list and everything worked great. The faders and knobs are already functional for many of the reason instruments (MPK49 instrument selection). I do agree with other reviews that the Pads could be more sensitive; however, I didn't buy it for the Pads. B&H has the best price that I could find and their service is #1.

  • Excerpt: I am new to the world of MIDI and took some time in deciding which keyboard to go with. I'm glad to say that I think I made the right choice. This keyboard has many quality functions that are easy to learn. The included Ableron lite software is also very easy to understand and powerful! As always, the best price by far was found here at B&H!

Akai MPK61 Keyboard Customer Review

By a customer from yahoo.com, zzounds.com
11 September 2011
  • Excerpt: hands down, this a very dynamic midi controller. Akai has really stepped up their performance and durability in this machine. the shipping packagewas very secured and it looked so fresh and new. its very easy with the plug and play and hooks up very easily. the controller is a bit heavy but if it was to ever drop on the floor for any reason it would withstand the impact with its great durabilty. couldnt have asked for a better controller.

Best mid controller ever!

Poundrowdys, B&H Photo
28 August 2011
  • Excerpt: This controller has everything you need in a controller. The keys are semi weighted which gives the controller a realistic feel to a grand piano. It is very sturdy and the size is perfect for a 61 key. I was a bit scared it was going to be lengthy, but the size is equivalent to a 49 key axiom controller, which I previously owned before. The 16 pads are great,but literally feels like a akai mpc 1000.
  • Pros: Easy To Collaborate Across Programs, Easy to Customize, Easy to Navigate, Great with ableton live, Versatile
