[NAMM] Akai MAX25 mini USB, MIDI & CV controller

Akai Professional exhibits at NAMM 2013 MAX25, a compact version of the MAX49 USB/MIDI/CV keyboard controller that was released in 2012.

MAX25 has all of the same features as MAX49, including CV/Gate output, semi-weighted keys with aftertouch, a built-in step sequencer, expanded arpeggiator, and LED touch faders for gradual or instant parameter value changes. 

The difference between MAX49 and MAX25 only lies in the number of onboard controls. Where MAX49 has 49 keys, 8 faders, and 12 pads, MAX25 has 25, 4, and 8, respectively. 

Like MAX49, MAX25 will come with AkaiConnect automatic-mapping software and Mackie Control and HUI modes for instant compatibility with many DAWs.

In short:

  • 25 semi-weighted keys with aftertouch
  • 4 LED touch faders
  • Included AkaiConnect software automatically maps to VSTs
  • 8 MPC pads, MPC Note Repeat, and MPC Swing
  • 4 pad banks, 4 fader banks: 64 assignable pads, faders, and buttons
  • Step sequencer and arpeggiator
  • CV & Gate outputs (1V/Oct)
  • Mackie Control and HUI modes
