Akai Professional Advance 61 overview

  • 1Description

The Advance 61 from Akai Professional is a 61-key, USB MIDI controller that also features eight MPC drum pads with RGB back-lit illumination. The keyboard boasts an integrated high-resolution full-color 4.3-inch display, which in tandem with the included Virtual Instrument Player (VIP) software application, provides real-time control and feedback of your favorite VSTi virtual instruments.
