Featuring Akai’s VIP software, which pulls you away from your computer screen and towards a more hardware-centric studio environment, the Advance series really marries your software instruments to your playing and production style.

We hope that Akai stands by this, as it could be a control standard. We said: “It offers a very successful mix and integration of both software and hardware, and one that will have you turning from your computer to your hardware and, what’s more, using your ears to mix rather than your eyes.”
