AKAIs mini MIDI Keyboard w/ MIDI drumpads

Great for those just getting into music production - this midi keyboard is easily the best choice over similar entry level midi keyboards. Ideally, you want something 1st of all to input notes into Fruity Loops, Ableton or whatever DAW you have chosen to use. The mini keys are velocity sensitive, and can cover 5 Octaves using the up /down keys. Easy to set up - and is auto detected by any DAW as soon as its midi to usb lead is plugged in. Its USB powered too so no mains power needed. The built in Arpeggiator has a tempo key, as well 4 built in programs can also be easily set up how you want it - it just a click or two - as is the drum pads - 8 velocity sensitive pads, in 2 banks - give you 16 separate assignable pads to any midi command. Also are 8 MIDI assignable rotary knobs again easily assignable to any function in the DAW or any VST instrument as a plugin - or in a standalone version - such as Arturia's Spark Drum Synthesizer. Also as all midi can be remapped, its possible to map it to dj software - like to trigger cue points/ loos / samples etc, with the pads - 1 bank for cues, one for loops and the keys remapped as sample triggers. Anyway - a versatile entry midi keyboard - but as its by AKAI - you know its going to be anything but basic. Great. 5 Stars ******

This is good if you go around with your equipment a lot because i don't think it is studio equipment, it is more a carry round for messing around when your away or something, If you want studio equipment then get a proper midi keyboard but if you are after a carry around then choose this or the novation impulse 25 or the novation ultra/mini nova.
