Working seamlessly with Akai Professional's heralded SynthStation software, SynthStation49 provides unparalleled music creation capabilities, including direct in-app MIDI recording from its velocity-sensitive keyboard, nine MPC-style drum pads and array of transport controls.
In addition to its integration with the SynthStation app, SynthStation49 is also completely iOS CoreMIDI compatible, making it instantly compatible with dozens of music apps already in the App Store and hundreds more on the way.
Dock, power and position your iPad perfectly using the adjustable-angled cradle, or establish commanding control over your favourite computer software using SynthStation49's USB/MIDI port. Professional 1/4" outputs and extreme portability ensure you'll be able to take your sequences straight to the stage at a moments notice.
SynthStation49's keyboard, pitch/modulation wheels and sustain pedal input provide great feel and the essential controls for musicians and producers to compose, record and perform. The nine drum pads of SynthStation49 give users immediate, intuitive beat-creation capabilities over the 50 classic and modern kits available within the SynthStation software. Program, Sequence, Song Select and Transport buttons also provide quick navigation to the SynthStation App's most used components for a seamless, efficient workflow.
SynthStation49 also contains a stereo pair of professional 1/4" TRS outputs with volume knob for easy connection to other pro audio equipment on stage or in the studio. A headphone output also lets users practice and compose in private. The SynthStation49's USB port can be connected directly to a Mac or PC computer to receive power in addition to transmitting MIDI to and from music software - a great way to turn the SynthStation App or other CoreMIDI compatible App into a sound module. You can even use SynthStation49 as a traditional USB MIDI controller with your computer - no iPad required!
AkaiConnect SDK allows third-party developers to take advantage of all the professional controls and capabilities of Akai Pro's SynthStation49 keyboard controller and incorporate support for those controls within their iPad applications, giving you more options than a standard MIDI controller the minute your iPad is docked.
