Akai Advance 61

The Akai Advance 61 grants users intuitive control over their favorite VSTi programs in a single, compact controller. The unit features a 61-note keyboard, traditional pitch bend and modulation wheels, 8 continuously variable control knobs, 8 velocity-and-pressure-sensitive pads, and various transport and control buttons. It is an inherently playable and intuitive device that successfully blurs the gap between hardware instruments and software applications.

The Advance 61 boasts a 4.3 inch display for immediate control and precise visual feedback. The screen instantly configures itself to the plugin’s controls, allowing players to dive in and immediately make use of the device’s intuitive editing functionality. In terms of compatibility, the Advance 61 is compatible with any VSTi virtual instrument. For even more enhanced functionality, the unit comes bundled with a custom Virtual Instrument Player software, which affords singular control over the user’s entire VSTi library.
