Product Description

Unprecedented Control of Your Virtual Instruments

This is the way to do it! Akai Professional’s Advance Keyboards are like nothing else you’ve ever played. The Advance 25 gives you unprecedented playability and unrestricted manipulation of any virtual instrument with our exclusive interactive full-color display complemented by performance-friendly hardware controls. Available in 25- 49- and 61-key sizes the Advance Keyboards deftly fuse the power of software instruments with the live playability of a keyboard workstation so you can create like never before. The dividing line between software and hardware instruments is finally gone!

The Advance Keyboards transform computer-based plugins into an entirely hands-on playing experience. The keyboard surface features an integrated high-resolution full-color 4.3-inch display providing real-time control and feedback of all virtual instruments. The screen instantly adapts itself to the selected plugin’s controls delivering immediate 1:1 access to the instrument and various editable functions. Better yet the Advance Keyboards work with any VSTi virtual instrument. Using the Advance Keyboard’s custom-designed Virtual Instrument Player (VIP) software application your entire VSTi library is controlled by one application. VIP operates as a plugin inside any major digital audio workstation (DAW) or as a stand-alone application on both Mac and Windows operating systems.

Sophisticated but Easy to Use

Dedicated physical controls are thoughtfully included with our RGB backlit velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads on each keyboard surface. Rubberized pitch and modulation wheels provide simple direct note manipulation with musically natural action. Easily-gripped continuously-variable endless knobs let you make adjustments with granular or dramatic effect. Our custom semi-weighted velocity-sensitive keybed supports aftertouch making it the ideal keyboard for seasoned live performers and studio producers alike.

We Give You Everything You Need

Included with each Advance Keyboard is the Virtual Instrument Player (VIP) application. VIP gives you immediate access to any virtual instrument in your collection-with or without a DAW-a powerful way to play virtual instruments live or integrate them into a recording session.

VIP software users can also create setlists that provide on-demand access to your customized instruments for stage performance and studio work. By simply pressing a single button on an Advance Keyboard you can adapt to song changes as the live performance progresses-without ever reaching for your computer. That’s what you want!

You’ll also love VIP’s facilities for hyper-fast instrument and patch browsing key zone splitting layering of up to 8 instruments per VIP instance expansive custom mapping capabilities and support for any VSTi plugin. You can run as many instances of the Virtual Instrument Player as your computer allows. VIP runs as a VSTi AU VST 32 or AAX plugin allowing you access to VSTi’s in virtually any DAW such as Pro Tools Logic Pro X and Ableton Live.

With the Advance Keyboards you get uninhibited access to any virtual instrument in your library without losing focus of the instrument in front of you. Nothing else can do that for you.
