    Great service as always. Called to check a couple of things and the staff were very helpful.

    Mr. Alex West30th Dec 2015

    I can't fault this product in any way. It's built like a tank and has been one of the most trouble free midi devices I've ever used. It just works, and that's comparatively rare.

    Trusted Customer20th Jul 2015

    The MPK261 is an excellent MIDI Keyboard controller that is only let down by a clumsy user interface - where is that long waited for firmware update AKAI? The keybed feel is superb and the knobs and switches exude quality. Overall a good buy for anyone wanting a basic MIDI keyboard controller.
