Akai keyboards, samplers, MIDI controllers and more

Akai entered the electronic music industry with one purpose: to give artist the tools they need to express and explore new musical possibilities. Now, standing at the forefront of digital technology, Akai remains one of the most influential manufacturers of music equipment in the past 20 years.

The Akai MPC (Music Production Controllers) series has continued to break new ground, from the seamless hardware/software integration of the MPC Renaissance to the iPad compatibility of the MPC Fly.

The Akai MPK range of music product keyboards caters to every producer's MIDI and triggering needs, from the tiny MPK Mini (ideal for use with a laptop on the go), through 25 and 49-key versions right up to the monster MPK 88-key edition with hammer action.

Dr. Dre

Rapper, record producer, record label executive, entrepreneur and actor, a man of many talents is Dr. Dre. The doctor has collaborated with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Missy Elliott on huge tracks like ‘The Next Episode’ and ‘I Need a Doctor’, and has produced for a number of artists including 2Pac, Nas and NWA. The entrepreneur has achieved a staggering 6 Grammy Awards throughout his career and an MTV VMA for best rap in a video for the hit ‘Forgot About Dre’ Featuring Eminem.

It was reported that Dre is a devoted customer of Akai and that his primary instrument in the studio is the Akai MPC 3000 drum machine and sampler. Dre claims that he often uses as many as four or five different MPC 3000s to produce just a single recording.
