The Great-playing Keyboard You Can Take Everywhere!

If you like to take your ideas with you and refuse to be tied down to a desk, you just can't beat the Akai Professional LPK25 ultra-portable keyboard controller. Its small format lets it travel comfortably in the outer pocket of your laptop case, and you won't even notice its light weight design when you're on the move. You don't even have to lug around an AC adapter because the LPK25 runs completely off of USB buss power. Twenty five low-profile keys with real synth action give you plenty of immediate note access and playability, while the LPK25 remains shallow enough that you can comfortably reach your qwerty keyboard without accidentally bumping notes.

Even if you're looking for a desktop MIDI controller, you're sure to appreciate the extra desk real estate you'll have because of the LPK25's tiny footprint. And the super-portable Akai Professional LPK25 goes well beyond the bounds of being a mere MIDI keyboard. In addition to its petite stature it's loaded with useful features. It has a killer arpeggiator, plus sustain, octave up, octave down, and tap tempo controls. And all you need to do in order to use this little controller keyboard is to plug it in, and the LPK25 will work instantly with your Mac or PC — plug-and-play compatibility means no fighting with extra drivers!

One tough little keyboard

I've had this little puppy for several years now. It is the one controller that is always on my desktop which means it is always there if I get musical inspiration (or bored). It shares my desktop with my car keys, ashtray, tall glass of iced tea or brew, and the days junk mail. Not meant to replace a full size keyboard but has a nice feel and like I said it is small enough to share space with my desktop clutter. Is set as the default controller for all my DAWs / VSTi's since it is always right there in front of me. I tend to use it to sample pre-sets or instruments before shifting over to larger keys . Has held up well under my abuse and the abuse of two grandkids who attack a keyboard like they think they are Jerry Lee Lewis on acid.

Just what I needed

If you've never owned a MIDI controller before, the Akai LPK 25 is a great one to start with. It has really expanded my musical creativity, allowing me to use virtual instruments and trigger samples with ease. In addition, it is really inexpensive, and its compact size makes for easy travel. The LPK is also one of the few MIDI controllers that comes with an arpeggiator, which can be a lot of fun. Be sure to disconnect the USB cable after use though - the port is fragile.

Perfect controller for your macbook pro

the reason I love this controller so much is because I travel all the time. A talented producer can make hit songs with this! Traveling is a great influence on anyone's music. If you need a controller with MIDI dimms then read the box before purchasing people. 5 stars

I had a chance to play one of these at Summer NAMM and I have to say I really like the feel of the keys. The keys on the LPK25 are like the keys on the classic Casio SK-1.
