Need a tiny MIDI keyboard controller for working on music projects on the go? The Akai LPK25 is the perfect match for these requirements. It features miniature keys which, despite not being the full-size, are extremely playable, due to their full-sized width. And given the unit's tiny size, added to its USB power source, it’s perfect for a backpack or overnight or laptop bag, and therefore a lifetime on the move.
Alongside the standard Octave up and down buttons and a tap tempo button is an Arpeggiator, which outputs actual MIDI data. A Sustain button is another addition, saving the impractical alternative of carrying a sustain pedal around.
The keys are velocity sensitive, and easily good enough for recording dynamics into a MIDI sequencer.
If you need something ultra-portable, the Akai LPK25, your laptop or iPad, and a pair of headphones may be all you need to lay down ideas away from your home or pro studio.
