Akai is quite busy this week. After the MPK mini the hardware manufacturer announces the SynthStation25 for iPhone and iPod touch. With this midi keyboard you can transform both devices into a music production studio, Akai promises.
The SynthStation25 has a built-in dock for the iPhone and iPod touch. After placing one of these handheld devices into the dock you can play the app SynthStation (three synthesizers) with the 25 velocity sensitive keys and pitch and modulation wheels. The SynthStation25 has a headphone output and a stereo RCA line-output for recording and connecting to audio systems.
You can also play software synths on your computer by the usb/midi-connection. The SynthStation will soon be available in the stores. For more information visit the Akai website.
