Categories > Keyboard Controllers > AKAI > Akai MPK-49 Semi-Weighted 49-Key Kybd/Pad Control USB & Midi Keyboard Controller

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 A great live midi keyboard.
Pros: -Very sturdy
-Perfect for a live setup, doesn't take too much table-space, yet has everything you'd want jammed into the interface.
-Key action is very solid, been pounding the hell out of them, and they're holding up well.
-Drum pads are nice for using samples whilst playing.
Cons: -Setting up your macros can be confusing and difficult for beginners.
-The USB cord that comes with it is *very* short. You'll probably need to get a longer one.
Other Thoughts: I bought this keyboard as a controller/keyboard combo for a live group I started up with some friends and it has not disappointed. A very solid construction, this thing was made to jam. Having the controls so tight together makes jumping around on it very natural feeling, and while setting it up to work with your DAW may be a little bit of a learning curve, it's VERY worth it.
I'm very satisfied with this one, and I recommend it to those musicians who are delving into the electronic world and want a keyboard controller than can cover a lot of bases.

Categories > Keyboard Controllers > AKAI > Akai LPK25 Laptop Performance Compact Keyboard Controller

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 lpk25
Pros: solid firm keys, wide range for velocity, compatibility with DAWs, and decent length usb cord.

low price for a good quality keyboard that won't break within a month
Cons: keys are small but expected,
needs "breaking in" I feel like
no pitch bend
slightly more expensive than a nanokey, but much better quality
Other Thoughts: I feel Newegg needs to sell more affordable midi controllers and PC music gear. I think it "fits" Newegg's "style", and would attract a wider group of customers that may be shopping elsewhere for a product such as the Akai LPD8, which isn't found at newegg (to my knowledge).

3 day UPS shipping during the holidays turns into 7 days or more sometimes, so plan accordingly. (I miss Newegg-FedEx free shipping)
