Dock, power and position the iPad perfectly using the adjustable-angled cradle, or establish commanding control over your favourite computer software using SynthStation 49's USB/MIDI port. Professional 1/4 inch outputs and extreme portability ensure you'll be able to take your sequences straight to the stage at a moments notice.
SynthStation 49 is the only full-featured, professional keyboard controller allowing direct MIDI performance recording onto an iPad. Bridging Akai Professional's popular MPK controllers with the previously released SynthStation 25, SynthStation 49 provides immense software control with forty-nine, full-size velocity-sensitive keys, nine backlit MPC-style drum pads and full transport buttons. An adjustable-angled dock for iPad allows the user to easily slide their tablet into the SynthStation 49's cradle and position the screen to their preference.
SynthStation 49's keyboard, pitch/modulation wheels and sustain pedal input provide great feel and the essential controls for musicians and producers to compose, record and perform. The nine drum pads of SynthStation 49 give users immediate, intuitive beat-creation capabilities over the 50 classic and modern kits available within the SynthStation software. Program, Sequence, Song select and Transport buttons also provide quick navigation to the SynthStation App's most used components for a seamless, efficient workflow.
SynthStation 49 also contains a stereo pair of professional 1/4 inch TRS outputs with a volume knob for easy connection to other pro audio equipment on stage or in the studio. A headphone output also lets users practice and compose in private. The SynthStation 49's USB port can be connected directly to a Mac or PC computer to receive power in addition to transmitting MIDI to and from music software – a great way to turn the SynthStation App or other CoreMIDI compatible App into a sound module. You can even use SynthStation 49 as a traditional USB MIDI controller with your computer - no iPad required!
