User reviews on MIDI Keyboard Controller products

Very good, but lacks features (Akai - 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?

Superbe qualité prix (M-Audio - Code 61)

By Ullie Swan, 22/06/2019
Je ne me sers personnellement pas des pads ni des fonctionnalités de contrôle je l’ai Choisi pour son nombre de touches et sa vélocité assez intéressante pour jouer du piano pour une version plus transportable que mon piano électrique. Je l’ai depuis deux ans, aucun problème avec. Je ne m’en lasse pas.

Expecting allot but flaws in design (Akai - 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 :(
