Akai Pro Audio MIDI Controllers

An Akai Pro Audio MIDI controller is a hardware or software platform that generates and transmits Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) data. The most common type of MIDI controller is the electronic musical keyboard.

Why do I need to use a MIDI Controller?

MIDI controllers are keyboards that transmit MIDI information to your computer/device. It is important to note that MIDI controllers do not create sounds by themselves, as they are meant to control your preferred music software program.

A MIDI controller:

  • Creates high quality sounds and beats
  • Is easy to use 
  • Is an affordable musical device
  • Is relatively light and portable

It is, however, important to remember that physical MIDI controllers are accessories. You can create music through computer software, even though it will not sound exactly the same, and the process will not be as quick and effortless as if you had used a hardware MIDI controller.

How do I use an Akai MIDI Controller?

Akai MIDI controllers are usually plugged into your computer or any other MIDI-enabled device. Before connecting a MIDI keyboard to your personal computer, you need to make sure it has a MIDI port.

Once that has been established, you need to acquire a USB-MIDI cable if you want to connect it to your computer. Some soundcards already come equipped with MIDI ports and if that is the case, you should buy MIDI to MIDI cables. 

Newer keyboard models come equipped with USB MIDI ports, meaning that you only need a standard USB cable to connect.

What should I look for in a MIDI Controller?

MIDI controllers that do not come equipped with play, stop and record buttons are rare, but you should double-check the device you choose has them as they smoothen your workflow and provide you with easy to access shortcuts.
