When you want to put on a world-class performance, it calls for world-class hardware. That's why Akai Professional MIDI controllers and equipment are worth your attention. This company started up in 1984, right in the thick of the MIDI revolution, and quickly began leading the way with the new standard. Since then, they've never let themselves fall behind, and Akai still makes cutting-edge professional MIDI hardware today.

Akai is especially well-known for their line of wind controllers. By giving woodwind and brass players a familiar and natural way to control it, these devices prove that MIDI isn't just the realm of keyboards and sequencers. It's true that MIDI allows any instrument to be simulated with any controller, but it takes a wind controller to make it truly come alive with legitimate breath control. If you're interested in a straightforward, accessible controller for practice or hobby use, take a look at the EWI USB. For professional studio or stage performances, consider the EWI4000 S.

Something a little more "mainstream" in the MIDI world would be pad controllers, and Akai has a lot to offer here. Specifically, their flagship pads are the MPD series, starting from the compact and simple MPD18 USB MIDI Pad Controller. It's a perfect choice when all you need are some quick triggers to set off your cues. If you want to add sliders, knobs and other assignable controls to take things even further, all you have to do is step up to the MPD26 or MPD32. Just choose the level of control you need, and you'll be ready to play.

Of course, the Akai professional MIDI lineup wouldn't be complete without its biggest segment: keyboard controllers. There are plenty to choose from, such as the MAX49, which offers semi-weighted keys and 8 pads for cuing up effects and sequences. It's also available in bundled packages with some really great accessories to help you get up and running even faster. Looking for a full-range keyboard? No problem; the MPK88 has it handled. How about portability? Check out the LPK25 - it's small enough to slip into a backpack.

The bottom line is that whatever you're looking for in a professional MIDI controller, Akai is ready to accommodate you. They've been a mainstay of the stage and studio for three decades, and it's the performance of their equipment that's made them so successful. When you want to make the most of what MIDI has to offer, look no further than Akai.
