Akai MPKROAD88 88-Key Stage Piano Controller
Akai MPKROAD88 88-Key Stage Piano Controller proves that feel is everything with your keyboard controller. The Akai MPK Road 88 keyboard controller builds on a long history of keyboards and midi controllers from Akai and the result is the sensitive response you need for expressive performances. And, with its built-in USB audio interface with four audio outputs, it’s the perfect match for your software instruments. With dedicated volume controls on its front panel, solo performers can manage their signals from the Road 88 without having to mess with a separate interface. Complete with an integrated travel case, the Akai MPK Road 88 keyboard controller is a smart solution for gigging with your software instruments.
Designed for the touring professional, the Akai MPKROAD88 88-Key Stage Piano Controller is a high-quality keyboard with a built-in audio/MIDI interface neatly integrated into a tough road-ready travel case with carrying handle. The MPK Road 88 utilizes the hammer-action Model-A keybed with velocity sensitivity and aftertouch to provide a remarkably natural and responsive feel.
The audio interface is plug-and-play, allowing you to simply connect your computer with a single USB cable and output two stereo mixes from the controller to the main PA with a separate set for monitors. The front panel features pitchbend and modulation wheels plus, dedicated volume control and a headphone output. Six buttons offer transpose and split controls, as well as preset browsing. The controller includes two expression pedal inputs, a sustain pedal input, as well as a pair of 5-pin DIN MIDI I/O connectors for controlling hardware instruments and effects. The bus-powered Akai Pro MPK Road 88 ships with a USB cable and includes a software instrument library.
