06-06-2017

Cumberland, RI USA (October 19, 2016) — Akai Professional, a leading manufacturer of music equipment for performers and producers, today announced the introduction of their LPK25 Wireless, a ground-breaking portable 25-key MIDI Bluetooth keyboard. Recognizing the need for a wireless keyboard that doesn’t sacrifice versatility and great sound, the new LPK25 Wireless takes portability and feature-rich performance to the next level with its Bluetooth MIDI connectivity, allowing players to control their plug-in instruments from anywhere in the room, providing the ultimate in studio setup flexibility.

Lightweight and perfect for the laptop musician on the go, LPK25 Wireless is full of expressive sound. At the center of the controller is a solid, 25-note mini-keybed with a sophisticated touch that experienced players will truly appreciate. Octave-up and octave-down buttons ensure that players are playing in exactly the note range they want. The powerful Arpeggiator mode turns chords into exciting and complex music phrases. The LPK25 Wireless also comes equipped with a sustain pedal input for enhanced control over every chord, riff and run.

Another advantage of going cord-free: No more accidentally disconnecting the USB connection or tripping over power cables in the middle of a performance.

Music Apps—enhanced

The LPK25 Wireless can also connect to any iOS device. Players can rip the keys on countless available music apps for truly on-the-go performance, while maintaining a truly mobile setup.

Two of a Kind

Paired with Akai Professional’s new LPD8 Wireless Bluetooth MIDI pad controller, these two controllers form an outstanding combo of wire-free musical portability. The musical possibilities for mobile producers and performers are virtually unlimited.
