Akai

Akai Professional entered the electronic music industry in 1984 with one purpose: to give artists the tools they need to express and explore new musical possibilities.

Akai Pro gear is a fixture of modern music both in studio and on stage. Their refinement of digital sampling technology has become the building block of today's most popular music. The uniqueness of their MPC sequencing samplers has defined the way modern music is created, enabling digital samples to become the basis for composition. Akai Professional stands at the forefront of music production technology, leading the field of software control devices. While many engineers, producers, and musicians use computers and software as their composition medium, Akai Pro is a specialist in the interface between the creative mind and the computer. Because, simply put, the mouse and computer keyboard are not inspiring musical instruments.

Akai Professional is and has been one of the most influential manufacturers of musical equipment for 25 years.
