Akai LPK25


The inexpensive and portable Akai LPK25 compact MIDI keyboard controller is a perfect companion for an iPad- or laptop-based studio as long as you don't need a mod wheel.

Small but good


In conclusion, I loved the LPK25. It has a solid feeling, and it's only about as big as a laptop keyboard. I doubt I've ever seen better value for such a price. The durable build quality(I've dropp...

User review Akai LPK25 by moosers on Audiofanzine


With certainly not the best overall MIDI controller, the Akai LPK25 doesn't aim to be. It's made for those who want the portability of a MIDI keyboard for use on the stage, in the studio, or where...
