Solid gear as promised.

  • Excerpt: This is an excellent keyboard. It was in good shape when delivered, and I found the online support outstanding for it (got it working with SONAR X2 in no time). The weight of the keys is satisfying, and the controls and build quality are what I'd expect from a piece of gear labelled "pro.

Top of the Line MIDI Controller

14 February 2012
  • Excerpt: use the Akai MPK88 to develop ideas for songs, as well as to perform live. The MPK88 has some of the best features out of all the MIDI controllers I've seen. It has 88 keys for a huge range of sounds, and these weighted keys have a very good feel - not like some of the other controllers out there...
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys

the only real choice for 88 keys

  • Excerpt: This has everything you need as the previous review mentioned. I am using this with sonar x1 and tried everything I could that was an 88 key MIDI controller and not a workstation. I wanted knobs sliders and buttons as well as light weight so I could mount it under my workstation on sliders.
  • Pros: Versatile
  • Cons: Pads not funtional

watch out for buzzy case

Thomas A. Witten, amazon.com

  • Summary: I purchased this as the ultimate Midi controller - and in my opinion it is. There is only one issue - no templates for Logic - come on AKAI - you can do better. A little bit more work for your customers goes a long way!!!

Great, but not perfect.

Phil, amazon.com
8 June 2011
  • Summary: Just a couple of things to help you figure out if this review is actually going to be useful: I'm reviewing this in a vacuum, so to speak. I don't have a lot of experience with midi controllers, and in fact this is my first purchase to not only learn on a piano-like instrument, but to start making...
