Akai Advance 61
The Advance 61 is a 61-key MIDI keyboard that gives you unprecedented play-ability and unrestricted manipulation of any virtual instrument. This keyboard features full-color display, complemented by performance-friendly hardware controls at an easily portable 12.13 lbs. 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 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.
