Akai Professional MAX49 USB/MIDI/CV Keyboard Controller

Akai Professional's MAX49 conveniently places revolutionary MIDI and CV control at your fingertips. The MAX49's intuitive layout and included AkaiConnect automatic-mapping software provides you an instant, fully immersive experience with your favorite music software and virtually all your VST plug-ins. With its 49 semi-weighted keys, 12 real MPC pads, groundbreaking LED touchfaders and vintage CV & Gate outputs, the MAX49 combines cutting-edge Akai Pro technology with classic capability for an exceptionally solid music-making experience.

Cutting-edge
One of the MAX49's most distinguished features is its four banks of eight backlit LED touch faders which allow you to assign up to 32 control parameters. Use them just like analog faders by simply dragging your finger along their touch strips, or you can perform instant leaps in any MIDI value from zero to maxed out and everything in between with a simple tap exactly where you want it. Making changes on the fly is now easier than ever.

Classic
The MAX49 is also equipped with four banks of 12 backlit MPC pads, giving you a total of 48 assignable pads, allowing you to integrate legendary Akai Pro production capability into live performances and recording sessions alike. These backlit, velocity sensitive pads come with classic MPC Swing, Note Repeat, Full Level, and navigation controls to give you all the tools you need to create music at your highest level. On top of that, it has USB MIDI, traditional 5-pin DIN MIDI and even Control Voltage and Gate outputs onboard, allowing you to control everything from today's most advanced music software, to analog modular synths from as far back as the 1960s. Built-in Mackie Control and HUI protocols also give you instant compatibility with many industry-standard DAWs.

Complete
When you're ready to get down to business, MAX49 delivers essential controller features with excellence. Its 49 semi-weighted keys with Aftertouch provide you with professional feel, perfect response and full musical expression. Large, centrally positioned transport controls give you straightforward track navigation, and rubberized pitch and modulation wheels allow you instant creative flourishes. MAX49's expanded arpeggiator includes a Latch button as well as eight different time divisions to create sweeping and endlessly varied melodic cascades. A built-in step sequencer allows you to get the music in your head laid down with exacting detail.

Maximum Control
The included AkaiConnect automatic-mapping software has you up and running in your favorite DAW and VSTs in seconds. AkaiConnect has been designed to eliminate the guesswork and give you more time creating and less time setting up controls. Instantly assign MAX49's MPC pads, touchfaders and buttons to your favorite music software plug-ins by simply clicking on the software element you want to control, then touching the knob, pad, fader or button on this special controller.
