AKAI / KEYBOARD CONTROLLER MAX25
Control anything from any time.
MAX25 places revolutionary control at your fingertips with the ability
to command anything, from vintage analog synths via its CV/Gate outputs
to modern MIDI and USB MIDI devices. With an intuitive layout and
included Ableton Live Lite, AkaiConnect, and Ignite music creation
software, MAX25 offers instant, powerful creative capabilities. From its
25 semi-weighted keys and 8 real MPC pads, to its groundbreaking LED
touch faders and built-in 16-note step sequencer, MAX25 combines
cutting-edge Akai Pro technology with classic capability to give you an
unprecedented music-making experience.
Cutting-edge LED Touch Faders
MAX25 is one of the most unique controllers ever engineered. Right away
you'll notice one of its most distinguishing features: four banks of
four backlit LED touch faders, allowing you to assign up to 16 control
parameters. You can use MAX25's LED touch faders 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—an unprecedented, unmatched controller capability.
Built-in Step Sequencer
Akai Professional’s MAX25 and MAX49
are the only keyboard controllers available that include a built-in
step sequencer. MAX25’s touch faders combine with the built-in step
sequencer to offer even more innovative performance capabilities.
Control four banks of four steps each, creating patterns up to 16 steps.
The step sequencer can be assigned to MIDI parameters or the CV/Gate
outputs, and the touch faders give you real-time editing control over
modulation, filters, key changes, and effects. Create instant arpeggios
by swiping your finger horizontally across the faders, and easily
activate and deactivate steps using the button beneath each fader.
