Excellent Piece of gear!!!!

Akai Master, 29.12.2017
This is a phenomenal piece of hardware and a great piece of software minus the kinks that need fixing with updates. The key bed is the first thing that stands out. These key are beautiful to play and very responsive which you can adjust to your liking. his is probably the best controller that I've ever used. It is extremely well-built, with thick rubber coating on the pitch and mod wheels, and the best pads that I've ever played. The pads are made of thick rubber (possibly mixed with plastic to make them more sturdy). They are very responsive and I can actually play finger rolls on one pad. It took me some time, several videos, and a review of the manual to figure out the basic operation of this controller. Having the VIP software is a great addition. I use a Mac both at home and in my studio, with Pro Tools 11, Logic Pro X 10.2, and Reason 8.3. Between Pro Tools and Logic, I can access hundreds of plug-ins, but it's nice to be able to add the ability to use VST plug-ins as well through VIP.

Unfortunately not for me

Harry aus I., 27.12.2016
Basically everything was super and a valuable Tatstatur. The concept of the Virtual Instrument Player is also great. As already some customers before me this very positive. So why not for me.

ASIO does not go. But only with me? No, according to the AKAI Forum there are probably some manufacturers whose ASIO drivers can not load or the software crashes. Have also everything tried what was proposed in the community as a possible solution. Without success.

I use the RME Firecface UC. Without ASIO, the latencies are simply not acceptable because there is a noticeable delay between keystroke and sound playback.

Other applications have no problems with the ASIO driver from RME
