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.
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.
