OVERVIEW

Catalog, control and map all of your favorite VST instruments with the Advance 49.

Akai's Advance 49 gives you unprecedented playability and unrestricted manipulation of any virtual instrument with its exclusive interactive, full-color display, complemented by performance-friendly hardware controls. This 49 key version fuses the power of software instruments with the live playability of a keyboard workstation, so you can create like never before. The dividing line between software and hardware instruments is finally gone.

The Advance Keyboards transform computer-based plugins into an entirely hands-on playing experience. The keyboard surface features an integrated high-resolution full-color 4.3" display, providing real-time control and feedback of all virtual instruments. The screen instantly adapts itself to the selected plugin's controls, delivering immediate 1:1 access to the instrument and various editable functions. Better yet, the Advance Keyboards work with any VSTi virtual instrument. Using the Advance Keyboard's custom-designed Virtual Instrument Player (VIP) software application, your entire VSTi library is controlled by one application. VIP operates as a plugin inside any major digital audio workstation (DAW) or as a stand-alone application on both Mac and Windows operating systems.

Sophisticated but Easy to Use
Dedicated physical controls are thoughtfully included, with RGB backlit, velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads on each keyboard surface. Rubberized pitch and modulation wheels provide simple, direct note manipulation with musically natural action. Easily-gripped, continuously-variable endless knobs let you make adjustments with granular or dramatic effect. Akai's custom semi-weighted, velocity-sensitive keybed supports aftertouch, making it the ideal keyboard for seasoned live performers and studio producers alike.

Everything You Need is Here
Included with each Advance Keyboard is the Virtual Instrument Player (VIP) application. VIP gives you immediate access to any virtual instrument in your collection-with or without a DAW-a powerful way to play virtual instruments live or integrate them into a recording session.
VIP software users can also create setlists that provide on-demand access to your customized instruments for stage performance and studio work. By simply pressing a single button on an Advance Keyboard, you can adapt to song changes as the live performance progresses-without ever reaching for your computer. That's what you want!

You'll also love VIP's facilities for hyper-fast instrument and patch browsing, key zone splitting, layering of up to 8 instruments per VIP instance, expansive custom mapping capabilities, and support for any VSTi plugin. You can run as many instances of the Virtual Instrument Player as your computer allows. VIP runs as a VSTi, AU, RTAS or AAX plugin, allowing you access to VSTi's in virtually any DAW, such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro X and Ableton Live.

With the Advance Keyboards, you get uninhibited access to any virtual instrument in your library without losing focus of the instrument in front of you. Nothing else can do that for you.

      Comments about Akai Professional Advance 49 MIDI Keyboard Controller:

      I love this keyboard. It is very easy to learn and use. There are more sounds included with the keyboard then I can use. I make my own sounds and the controller is perfectly design to meet my needs. The keys are very responsive. I use it with Logic Pro X and AKAI has good documentation (on their website) how to hook it up. Although the controller is new, there is a lot of help on line how to use it.

        Comments about Akai Professional Advance 49 MIDI Keyboard Controller:

        In terms of really playing keyboard im a novice, i can use all the help i can get. It came down to this or the N.I. komplete keyboard. I chose this because of VIP, however I will admit that the on board features for chords and scales on the NI is better suited for the novice.

        I like this board, it can certainly better. I'd expect a tap tempo function that sends out to the DAW to work on a board of this caliber and price point.
