The LPK25 is the perfect portable keyboard controller to use with your laptop. It's super small and light with 25 miniature velocity sensitive keys as well as some nifty features to give you plenty of ways to create your music.
Wireless Bluetooth Connectivity
One of the best things about the LPK series is its Bluetooth connectivity. Connect to your laptop PC or Mac quickly and without wires; no need to install drivers or connect power. This quick and easy wireless operation is amazing if you're always on the go and creating music in your spare free minutes!
It's natural to think that such a small device will be short on features. However the LPK keyboards have a few tricks hidden. The classic octave up and down controls make sure you're making the most of the keyboards compact keyset. The coolest thing however is the powerful Arpeggiator mode, which turns chords into exciting and complex music phrases. there's also a sustain pedal input for additional control over every chord, riff and run.
