Akai MAX49: NEW From Akai Pro - MAX Intuition

Published: Wed January 25, 2012  News Feed

Akai MAX49

Revolutionary Control

Akai MAX49 Keyboard Controller. The Akai MAX49’s intuitive layout includes what seems to be one of the most attractive features of this controller, CV and Gate ouptuts. The inclusion of vintage CV and Gate outputs enables you to use the MAX49 to control analogue synths. With 49 semi-weighted keys, 8 groundbreaking LED touch faders and 12 of the familiar, velocity-sensitive MPC trigger pads, the MAX49 provides an intuitive (there’s that word again) way of programming percussion parts and triggering live samples.

The MAX49 comes together with AkaiConnect automatic mapping software, offering an instant, fully immersive experience with your favourite music software, and virtually all VST plugins. This keyboard controller combines cutting-edge Akai Pro technology with classic capability, equaling an unprecedented music making experience.

The Akai MAX49 is fully equipped to handle pretty much anything you have to throw at it, yet it possesses some special features that set it apart from other mini controllers. This controller features the swing and note repeat features like those in the popular MPC range of production samplers.

Key Features

  • 8 LED touch faders
  • 12 MPC trigger pads
  • USB socket for connection to a host computer
  • MIDI socket for connecting to other keyboards, sound modules or MIDI equipment

… And we can’t forget the colour. You can say goodbye to the bland greys and blacks in the studio, because with the show-stopping red Akai MAX49, you’ll have both style and revolutionary control at your fingertips.
