Akai Pro MPK ROAD 88 MIDI Controller


Akai Professional Midi Controller Road 88



The new full size controller keyboard from Akai’s Professional was unexpected. The Akai Pro MPK Road 88 is designed for touring and gigging.


With 88 hammer-action keys, velocity sensitive and aftertouch response and a built-in four-output USB interface so with this plugged into your laptop you do not need any other gear. The MPK Road also comes with a bundle of useful software including Akai Pro VIP, AIR Music Tech DB-33, AIR Music Tech Velvet plus AIR Music Tech Mini Grand for Road 88.


Other connectivity options include dual expression and sustain pedal inputs. Pitch and modulation wheels sit alongside a volume control, and you also get transpose functionality and split modes.


As we know most MIDI controllers of this size have features including knobs and pads, sliders and buttons whereas this has less features. The Akai MPK Road is not complicated and it is not trying to control your DAW and you can handle any situation with ease. It is just there to let you get the best playing performance out of your virtual instruments or MIDI gear. An integrated travel case with handle means that your MPK Road will stay protected and be easy to carry.


Akai MPK Road 88  is available and amazingly priced at $628.58
