Perfect combination of size, quality, features, and price
TheGreenDino, 10.01.2021
I have this keyboard for two months now and I am super happy about it. I use it as a small and mobile input to my MIDI setup and to create short melodies and sometimes just to have fun.

The quality (for the price) is quite high. I really like the feeling and the response of the pads. The whole thing is fully programmable and with 8 pads and 8 knobs it's completely enough for my use case to also act as a MIDI controller for my AUM setup on iPad.

Pros:
- quality for the price
- size
- programmable (the note and command code of all pads and knobs can be changed)
- No driver needed (Mac and iPad)

cons:
- the software package that comes with it is amazing, but the only thing is that somehow Akai makes it hard to download them. I had hard time finding the program editor, but once you get them, you are all set.

Nice little starter keyboard
digitally_equivalent, 14.07.2021
Good intro to midi keyboards, enough for me to plug in to Ableton and start music. Box feels a little plasticky, no real weight to it, but otherwise does the job well.

Keys and pads velocity works well. Supprised with the force required to register max velocity, I have no experience as to whether that's normal or not for these things. Pads and keys do respond well to subtle touches, so happy for normal playing. Jut have to really mash the pads/keys for it to register as a hard strike.

Software is a bit limited and dated, and single licence means I cant install simultaneously on my PC and mac.... However the voice library with the AKAI software is pretty comprehensive.

All in all, happy with the product.

Great beginner's MIDI Controller!
the_end, 04.12.2020
This was my first MIDI controller. I was looking for a cheap, quality controller with pads and knobs and this one was new on the market. I can't compare it to other brands but compared to the previous version it's a lot better, or so they say on Youtube. It has endless encoding knobs which is a big plus if you're trying to control parameters in your DAW and the keys feel good (considering the price and what this is meant to be used for). Very portable and looks nice, I don't regret buying it! At the end of the day this is only as good as you are at messing around with the options your DAW provides. I bought it kind of blindly but have since learned a lot of tricks and ways to use it that blew my mind. For a beginner I wouldn't recommend anything else.

Superb keyboard for the price.
Handreas, 04.12.2020
I’m not a professional pianist, but I am a professional sound engineer.

I mostly work with live instruments, but most projects I do these days include at least some software instruments. So far I’ve got by with an old M-Audio keyboard, but I needed something better for a theatre-project I was working on. I wanted a portable and nice feeling keyboard that could make playing and recording synths and especially percussion easier, and this one ticked all the boxes for me: Small and light weight, pads, rotary encoders and a nice price.

Pros:
Keys feel nice. I like that they’re a bit stiff.

The rotary (endless) encoders are a huge plus.



The pads are very good. Velocity sensitivity is very good.

Excellent portability. Low weight and small frame means this will fit in the smallest of bags.

Cons:
Keys are a bit on the small side, but it’s not a huge issue unless you’re expecting real piano keys. I don’t play “real” piano, so I don’t care much, but my significant other, who’s a pianist, absolutely hates the size of the keys.

The joystick, instead of separate mod and pitch wheels, is so-so. It’s not a dealbreaker for me, but I would prefer wheels.
