At NAMM 2013 Akai have announced a new 25-note controller keyboard, which is set to join the larger MAX49. The compact MAX25 features 25 semi-weighted keys with aftertouch and most unique of all, four LED touch faders. Simply assign these fader to the software parameters of your choice and swipe your finger(s) up and down over them to make real-time changes. This approach has its advantages over traditional hardware faders because the LEDs will always show the current value of an assigned parameter even if you switch banks.
The Akai MAX25 comes with AkaiConnect software, which intuitively automatically maps the controls of the MAX25 to your VSTs. In terms of the hardware, the MAX25 also features 8 MPC pads, MPC Note Repeat and Swing, 4 pad panks and 4 fader banks, giving a total of 64 assignable pads, faders and buttons.
The Akai MAX25 also features a step-sequencer and arpeggiator, plus CV and Gate outputs, as well as Mackie Control and HUI modes.
If you're after a compact MIDI controller keyboard that is packed with features and controls then look no further than the Akai MAX25.
