Akai Professional make some of the most popular MIDI keyboard controllers and production controllers in the world. Their famous MPC style pads are sought after by many producers and DJs.

Akai Pro entered the electronic music industry in 1984, giving artists the tools they need to express and explore new musical possibilities. Since then, Akai Pro products have become a fixture of modern music both in studio and on stage. The refinement of their digital sampling technology has become the building block of today’s most popular music. The uniqueness of their MPC sequencing samplers has forever changed the way modern music is created by enabling digital samples to become the basis for composition. Akai Pro stands at the forefront of digital technology and remains one of the most influential manufacturers of musical equipment in the last 20 years. They have recently broken ground yet again with the Akai Force, an incredibly forward thinking standalone workstation that takes many aspects of the MPC and more modern day workflows. The drop date from Akai Australia is late May.
