Akai Professional MPK249 USB MIDI Controller Keyboard at a Glance:
Juice your productions with authentic MPC functionality
With the Akai Professional MPK249, you can juice your productions with authentic MPC workflows, using the familiar tools producers have relied upon for years. MPC Swing delivers that tight, organic groove that made MPC units instant classics. MPC Note Repeat and 16 Levels make it easy to build beats and construct short melodic sequences using the MPK249's 16 RGB-illuminated MPC-style pads. Also onboard is an arpeggiator that lets you easily explore more complex melodic ideas with its adjustable resolution, range, and patterns.
Addictive keyboard feel and plentiful performance controllers
At Sweetwater, keyboard feel is a big deal. (We're a picky bunch.) The MPK249's semi-weighted action is an ideal middle ground, working well for piano parts as well as fast synth leads. Akai Professional has also equipped it with assignable aftertouch - perfect for adding tasty vibrato and other modulation without having to disengage your hands from the keyboard. In addition to its assignable faders, buttons, and rotary encoders, the MPK249 is also fitted with sustain/footswitch and expression pedal jacks, as well as the de rigueur pitch and mod wheels.
Enhanced hardware control over your software = greater productivity
Seamlessly bridging the gap between hardware control and software performance, Akai Professional's latest generation of MPK controllers gives you the enhanced response of a refined new keybed, new RGB-illuminated MPC-style pads, the ability to send QWERTY-style commands via soft-controls, and a low-power iOS mode. It all adds up to enhanced hardware control over your software - which translates to greater productivity for you. The MPK249 is plug-and-play with your Mac or Windows computer, and it also sports iOS compatibility via Apple's optional iPad Camera Connection Kit. It even comes with free software, including Ableton Live Lite, Pro MPC Essentials, Hybrid 3 by AIR Music Tech, and SONiVOX Twist 2.0

The Pioneer Pro Audio BULIT series is designed for great audio feedback while practicing, producing, and creating music.
These studio monitors are offered in three models with varying size drivers – five, six, or eight inch – to fit your taste and environment. Each model features excellent sound quality, improved bass response and reliability, three types of inputs, and built-in equalization, useful if you want to achieve the highest accuracy in sound reproduction.
For maximum audio performance, increased bass output, and reduced unwanted resonance, each speaker utilizes a highly rigid medium density fiberboard (MDF) for its enclosure and bass reflex ducts. To optimize sound quality and reliability, the woofers are made with aramid fiber cones and soft dome tweeters infused in magnetic fluid.
To improve airflow through the port of the enclosure, the port hole was engineered with grooves to help direct the sound waves smoothly. The technique decreases standing waves from the mouth of the port, resulting in smooth bass and mid-bass output with more impact.
Matching the bass output of the speakers, the soft dome tweeters are set in the center of a convex diffuser optimizing output and dispersing the sound energy in both left and right directions for wider imaging. For a cool cosmetic look, the diffuser illuminates in white when the speakers are powered on.
Class AB Bi-Amp
A highly efficient Class AB amplifier drives the speakers in a bi-amp configuration to power the tweeters and woofers separately.
These monitors also enable you to adjust high-pass level output via the built-in equalizer from the back of the speaker. The equalizer adjusts the high frequency range in one decibel increments (-2dB to +1dB), tailoring the audio output to your listening preference.
All models feature three types of inputs - XLR, TRS, and RCA - for connection to different devices, such as external sound cards, computers, DJ equipment, and portable devices.
For convenience and power conservation, the speakers include an Auto Standby mode that automatically turns itself off when there is no input signal sensed after 25 minutes, and powers back on when signal input is detected.
