The MPK49 from Akai is one serious controller keyboard by anyone's standards. With 49 keys, 12 MPC drum pads, plenty of knobs and faders to tweak and a big blue LCD but it doesn't stop there. Add performance features straight off the MPC including Midi sync'd note repeat and arpeggiator with that MPC swing, you know how it goes. See Akaipro.com from the full details
