Introducing Akai MPK Road 88 Hammer-Action 88-Note USB Keyboard Controller.

With exclusive Model-A 88-key velocity-sensitive keybed, 4-output USB soundcard, MIDI in/out connectors and 3 pedal inputs with road-ready case, MPK Road 88 is the ideal solution for touring professionals.

Seeking the ultimate in pro keyboard controller performance? Look no further than the MPK Road 88 - a keyboard controller with Akai Professional’s all-new exclusive Model-A premium 88-key velocity-sensitive keybed with aftertouch, plus a 4-output USB soundcard, MIDI in/out connectors and three variable pedal inputs, all neatly integrated into a tough road-ready travel case with carrying handle. This is the ideal keyboard controller for the touring professional, combining both the great feel of hammer action keys and the creative versatility of a built-in soundcard so players can incorporate their virtual instrument libraries seamlessly into their performance.

Model-A Keybed, an Akai Professional Exclusive, for Amazing Feel For the serious professional keyboardist, feel is everything. That’s what separates truly great instruments from ordinary ones. Akai Professional—a recognised industry leader in keyboard technology and innovation — has spent over two years of intense engineering research and development creating the Model-A keybed. This hammer-action, velocity-sensitive keybed delivers an incredibly natural and responsive feel, absolutely unmatched by any instrument anywhere near its price.

Getting the Most Out of Virtual Instruments

Virtual Instruments play a pivotal role in both studio music production and live performances, offering players countless sounds and effects to shade and colour their music. With MPK Road 88’s integrated class-compliant 4-output soundcard and superior player-centric response, players can route their virtual instruments to mixers and monitoring sources simultaneously for a truly hassle-free setup. This keyboard enables players to manage and employ their VI collection to maximum effect, with a keybed designed for optimum expressive capability.
