Piano-Style Hammer Action 88 Keybed

As a pro keyboard player, you'll know that feel is everything. MPK Road features a Model-A premium 88-key velocity-sensitive keybed with aftertouch, designed to offer the most lifelike grand piano performance possible at a reasonable price.

Akai have spent over two years of intense engineering research and development creating the Model-A keybed. The end result is a keybed that blows the like-for-like competition away!

Intuitive Top Panel

Via a simple USB connection, MPK Road is fully capable of sending and receiving MIDI messages from your favourite DAW or software synths.

Also, with MPK Road 88’s integrated class compliant 4-output soundcard, you can easily route your virtual instruments to mixers and monitoring sources simultaneously.
