Akai launches mini MIDI controllers
Competition for Korg's nanoSeries
The LPD8 (top) and LPK25.
Akai has launched two miniature MIDI controllers in the shape of the LPK25 keyboard and the LPD8 pad controller. These will make their debut at this week's Summer NAMM show.
It probably isn't too unfair to suggest that these have been at least partly inspired by the success of Korg's nanoSeries devices, but there are some noteworthy differences.
For a start – and most importantly – the keys on the LPK25 are said to have a proper synth action, and they're velocity-sensitive. They're still mini- rather than full-sized, but this potentially makes them more playable than the laptop-style keys on Korg's nanoPad.

Other features on the LPK25 include an arpeggiator and sustain, octave up/down and tap tempo controls.
The LPD8 is said to be based on Akai's MPC range of grooveboxes and features eight blue light-up pads that are velocity-sensitive. It also comes with eight Q-Link knobs that can be assigned to parameters of your choosing.
Both controllers come with four memory banks that can be used to store settings for different software. Each device is less than 13 inches wide and weighs less than a pound.
Commenting on the launches, Akai Professional's Director of Business Development Adam Cohen said: "Today's music is in constant evolution, and that requires the tools for music creation to evolve similarly.
"The computer has entrenched itself as the new core of the music studio, and we are now seeing more live performance with computers than ever before. The LPD8 and LPK25 are the perfect extensions of the computer for making music in any setting."
Prices for the LPD8 and LPK25 haven't been confirmed, but they're expected to be released in the third quarter of 2009.

PRESS RELEASE: Akai Professional, the name synonymous with music production, announces the MPK61, the fourth model in the company's unique line of keyboard/MPC performance controllers.
The MPK61 will make its debut at Akai Professional's booth, number 400, at the Summer NAMM Show held at the Nashville Convention Center, July 17 – 19.
The MPK61 is a keyboard performance MIDI controller that expands the popular MPK line. Each MPK controller combines a piano-style keybed with a bank of genuine Akai Professional MPC pads, assignable Q-Link controllers and some of the technologies from the icon MPC. Producers, performers and DJs will appreciate the MPK61's mix of 61 semi-weighted keys with aftertouch, 16 MPC pads with velocity and pressure sensitivity, 72 assignable Q-Link, MPC Note Repeat, MPC Swing and an arpeggiator. The MPK61's size is ideal for performers who need a larger range than the original 49-key MPK49 offers, but also prefer the lighter weight and associated portability of a semi-weighted keyboard. The MPK61 retains the key split features from the MPK88, enabling the performer to divide the keyboard into two zones for performing with two different programs at once.
Like its 25, 49 and fully weighted 88-key siblings – the MPK25, MPK49 and MPK88, respectively – the MPK61 empowers musicians to create and manipulate melodic, harmonic and rhythmic content and manipulate quickly with its arpeggiator, MPC Swing and MPC Note Repeat technologies. The MPK61 comes with Ableton Live Lite Akai Edition software, one of the most popular and powerful performance and production programs worldwide. Ableton Live Lite enables musicians to spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise, and edit musical ideas in a seamless audio/MIDI environment. The MPK61 is a MIDI controller that sends MIDI values over USB for plug-and-play performance with Mac and PC. Because they are MIDI compliant, the MPK series works with virtually all MIDI recording, sequencing, and performance software for musical performers from keyboard players to producers to DJs and VJs.
"The MPK61 was designed to meet the requests of many keyboard performers," said Adam Cohen, Director of Business Development, Akai Professional. "They loved the MPK49's portability and ease of integration into their setup; they liked the large scale of the MPK88, and requested something in between: the MPK61."
The MPK61 performance keyboard controller will be available from professional audio and musical instrument retailers Q3, 2009.
