Product Description

The LPK25 laptop performance keyboard is a USB-MIDI controller for musicians, producers, DJs and other music creators. It measures less than 13 inches across and weighs less than a pound to easily fit into a laptop case, backpack or messenger bag for extreme portability.

Features:

- USB-MIDI controller works with virtually all audio software
- 25 velocity-sensitive mini-keyboard keys
- Arpeggiator, sustain button, octave up and down, and tap tempo controls
- Plug-and-play USB connection for Mac and PC requires no driver installation
- Small enough to fit in a backpack or laptop bag
- Four programmable memory banks
- Send note information or program changes from keys
- Comes with editor software for Mac and PC
- USB bus powered - no additional power cable needed

Keyboard players who want to work with software on their computer will find that the LPK25 gives their laptop the keys they need to express themselves anywhere.

The LPK25 is a scaled-down relative to the MPK series of keyboard performance controllers. The diminutive keyboard is made up of 25 miniature, velocity-sensitive keyboard keys with synth action.

The LPK25 contains an arpeggiator, which steps through chords automatically, assisting musicians with creating quick melodic ideas. Sustain, octave up and down and tap tempo controls round out the LPK25's easy-to-learn layout.

The LPDK25 works plug and play with Mac and PC and requires no software driver installation or wall power for operation. It has four memory banks for programming and recalling settings appropriate to different software programs you use.

Create melodic and harmonic riffs in seconds, anywhere, with the LPK25.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. Akai LPK25 Keyboard Customer Review
Sound: This Keyboard Controller is a really good product. I was looking for a controller that was small and compact so that I could easily carry it around with my laptop. I went with the smaller more compact Korg Nano keyboard controller at first. I was not satisfied with that product because it was just too flimsy and it didn't have a real keyboard feel to it. I then purchase the Akai LPK25 and realized it should have been my first choice. Even thought it was a little larger and bulkier then the korg, it was still very portable and had a much better feel to it. It's still a very basic controller, but it dose that job very well at a price that I can appreciate. The only negative experience I had with it was that the keys are small and the pressure sensitivity of the keys are sometime non responsive. Quality: Well Built

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The Great and Amazing Akai LPK 25"
Sound: Received the Akai LPK 25 on February 16, 2011. Not a novice to music and music performance but I had never really got into midi controllers and using DAW software. So this is my first experiment into the world of midi. For the price of this midi controller I am extremely amazed! This little controller is solid, and the velocity sensitive keys are wonderful and helps create that more "human sound" when playing. I have been using it with Ableton Live and it's really a lot of fun how simple but great this product sounds. Feature: The Akai LPK 25 was a snap to install! Actually there is really nothing to it, just plug it into a usb port and you are done! Just that simple. It did come with little piece of software for setting up the arpegiattor which can be set to external control so it can sync with your DAW's timing or you can set it independently. There was no fuss setting it up in Ableton, in fact there was nothing to setup. I just plug in the LPK 25, startup Ableton and it automatically just works. Ease of Use: Very easy to use, small and portable. Great as an added piece to your 'mini studio' setup, or for taking on the road so you have an easy device to record ideas anytime/anywhere inspiration may hit. Quality: Great quality, the keys feel great, it definitely doesn't feel cheap when you play which surprised me to be honest. Value: The price is what blew me away. As a person that wanted to get into midi for the first time I was always a bit put off by the higher priced controllers and was specifically looking for something that not only offered what some of the higher priced controllers did but for a nice low price. If and when I do upgrade to a more elaborate setup, this LPK 25 will still definitely be used as a wonderful tool that is portable, and great for testing out musical ideas on the go. Manufacturer Support: Not applicable... not had to contact support for anything yet "knock on wood" it's worked 100% since I've had it and just been a lot of fun. The Wow Factor: Small, portable, yet the feel is very professional, the velocity sensitive keys and the feel of the keys is done very well, which shocked me that the price wasn't much higher.
Style of Music: Ambient, Triphop, Trance
