Akai APC 20 Review

Live at your Finger Tips With the APC40, a control surface fully dedicated to Ableton Live, Akai created an extremely successful tool, so the launch of the APC20 comes as no surprise: an APC40 amputated of its right section and sold at half the price, to beat all competitors. read more…

Akai Miniak Review

Miniak On The Floor After having repositioned Alesis on the market, Numark seems to have entrusted Akai with the fate of the synth/drum machine product range. The Miniak is the first Akai synth "in the modern era". read more…

User reviews on Akai products

Very good, but lacks features (MPK61)

By Godly75, 18/06/2019
Pro
- Very good keyboard, perfect action and real semi weighted
- Solid built
- Overall quality is top

Con
- No CC on the pads
- No panic/all notes off button
- No software editor
- missing a 9th fader
- Top screen should show more data


I was looking for the MAX version, but that seems to be discontinued.
Especially for the touch faders. Why Akai?

Expecting allot but flaws in design (Max49)

By Godly75, 09/07/2019
I so loved this keyboard,
- Looks good
- great quality feel keybed
- good functions and controllers

But unfortunately:
- I had my second gig with it, now in open air and the touch faders began to jump around (and so did my settings/sound). I guess the touch response system works with warmth? So the cold screwed it over.
- the quality of the pitch/mod wheel is very bad, a known problem all over the akai keyboards

Please Akai, upgrade your products or stop calling yourselves Professional ! :-(
It's with pain in the heart I have to let this keyboard go because it was very practical and an eyecandy :(
