Product overview

• 25 velocity sensitive mini keyboard keys give you a keyboard you can take anywhere
• USB connectivity allows compatibility with your PC or Mac
• MIDI functionality allows use with a wide range of virtual instruments
• Arpeggiator, sustain button, octave and tempo controls give you flexibility of how your music sounds

How many octaves does this keyboard give me?
This keyboard comes with 25 keys which gives you two full octaves as well as an extra note. The octave control allows you to go higher and lower on the octave scale.

What does the keyboard sound like?
25 velocity sensitive keys and a series of controls present you with the ability to create whatever music you desire. Pitch bend allows you to manipulate the notes you are playing by raising and lowering the pitch. Modulation control allows for fine and accurate adjustments, enabling you to make complex adjustments to the output. Octave controls let you shift the sound up and down the octave scale, expanding the range of keys at your fingertips.

What does the arpeggiator function do?
An arpeggiator allows you to play complex synthesised sounds by just using simple chords. To do this, the keyboard listens to the notes being played and creates a pattern, played at a set master tempo to give you that electronic, synth sound, without the need for expensive equipment. This allows you to roll back the years to the electro-pop sound of the 1980’s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wanted a small midi keyboard to control a music programm (magix music maker 17) The Akai seemed to fit the bill perfectly, It's sensibly small and sits neatly behind my computer keyboard, has all the controls I need at the moment (and probably into the future as well).It's well made sensibly priced and arrived with Maplins usual swift delivery. If like me you're looking for a "first time" midi control keyboard, I can whole heartedly recommend this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This bit of kit is just so good, using it with a MAC Pro, with logic pro software and its great, have tried other software and works really well. It is small enough to sit on the desk without any obstruction. I would recommend this to everyone who into music creation and want a small input device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Purchase It worked straight out of the box, although I could not get it to work with the software provided. This was not a problem however, as I was only intending to use it with Ableton Live and Reason, with both of which it worked brilliantly. There is little latency and the arpeggiator is a great feature. Despite it's low price it feels well made and I have had no issues yet. The Maplin team were of great help, and I would recommend them and this product to anyone considering making a purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No pitch bend / mod Flimsy build, stiff keys and no pitch bend / mod, unlike advertised in the product description. Disappointed but can't be a*sed posting it back.

This item is simply a controller that you would connect to a pc and use with a music programme that supports Midi keyboard input. All cables needed are provided with the item you would just have to find and choose some software.
