Akai MPK88 Midi Controller Keyboard  - Information

Akai MPK88 is the daddy of the MPK range of USB Midi Controller Keyboards. Akai MPK88 features an 88-note, weighted hammer action keyboard that provides the feel and response of a true piano. MPK88 retains the same, stunning feature set developed for the rest of the MPK range, but offers a full size key-frame, which is ideal for composition and for playing huge virtual piano libraries.

MPK88 also features a keyboard split point, which enables the division of the keyboard into two zones for performing with two different programs at once. With 12 genuine MPC trigger pads, 12 controllers and a host of assignable buttons, the Akai MPK88 is the ideal Midi controller keyboard for driving your software sequencer, for playing virtual instruments and for composing.

The MPC-style trigger pads on the Akai MPK88 offer 12 function levels and MPC Swing, which can be applied to both Note Repeat and Arpeggio functions. Tap Tempo and time-division buttons allow for real-time control of Note Repeat and Arpeggio clock speeds.
