Built to offer unprecedented playability in the studio and onstage, the Akai Advance Keyboard stands out for its high-resolution, full-color screen—which measures 4.3 inches across and provides advanced control of virtual instrument plugins and DAWs. The layout is built for efficient workflow, and features 49 semi-weighted keys with aftertouch, plus eight velocity- and pressure-sensitive MPC pads with RGB illumination. Make adjustments using eight continuously variable knobs, and count on the built-in note-repeat, time-division, arpeggiator, and tap-tempo features for further creative expression.
Transform your computer-based plugins into a hands-on production experience with the included Virtual Instrument Player (VIP) software. This keyboard comes with a 16-gigabyte download of more than 10,000 sounds from Vacuum Pro, Loom, Hybrid 3, Xpand!2, Velvet, Transfuser, Creative FX Collection Plus by AIR Music Tech, Eighty Eight Ensemble by SONiVOX, Toolroom Records, and more—and there are hundreds more available for purchase in the VIP store. VIP plays virtually every VSTi-compatible plugin and allows you to control your entire computer library directly from the keyboard. Best of all, the screen instantly adapts to the selected plugin’s controls, delivering 1:1 access to the instrument and various editable functions.
