Producers Toolkit 

This intuitive instrument distills all of the key tools required by a producer into one compact unit. From a range of pads and assignable controls, to immediate integration with your preferred music production software and a new and improved Generation 2 enhanced dynamic keybed, this controller punches well above its weight. 

Packing all of these features (and more) into such small dimensions means it's the perfect portable companion for producing on-the-move too. A durable construction, user-friendly layout and plug in and play connectivity ensures there are no barriers to getting stuck-in whatsoever - no matter where you might find yourself!  

Hands-on Creativity 

The Gen 2 keybed forms the backbone of the controller. It offers a feel and performance that rivals models with bigger layouts. Whichever virtual instrument, synth or piano sound you select, your creativity will stem from the Gen 2 keybed first and foremost. 

This is complimented by the 8 pads derived from Akai's pioneering MPC range. They're perfect for sample playback and accurate beat-making - with a velocity sensitive architecture that makes them highly reactive to your playing. 

Alter Your Sounds

Using the in-built rotary knobs, you'll be able to take full control over a variety of different assignable parameters. Whether it's altering the dry/wet setting of your reverb, or tweaking the EQ a bit, you can change a multitude of different characteristics to suit your sounds. Alongside this, you have even more options available to you thanks to an arpeggiator, note repeat function and an omni-directional joystick.

The Complete Music Production Starter Kit 

This suite consists of a host of drum and sample expansion packs, a piece of software that's based on the workflow of the iconic MPC models of the past, as well as some of the best virtual instruments currently available. 

Let's start with the MPC Beats software. mix down tracks; edit and alter your samples; apply industry standard audio effects; record audio; harness sounds found on legendary MPC's; plus a whole lot more. It works as a plug-in that can be opened in any DAW of your choosing.
