Akai Advance 25

The Advance 25, from Akai, offers extensive control over a user’s entire VSTi library, enabling unprecedented control of all crucial parameters by way of a full-color display and intuitive front panel controls, including a 25-note keyboard and both pitch bend and modulation wheels. Combined, all of these features enable the Advance 25 to adeptly blur the boundaries between hardware and software. 

The Advance 25 is an efficient and compact means of transforming one’s relationship with virtual instruments by freeing the user from the tyrant of the computer/mouse configuration. Instead, parameters can be manipulated using any of the unit’s 8 variable control knobs and/or 8 pressure-sensitive pads. There’s also a color 4.3 inch display for instant visual feedback, with the screen changing in accordance with whatever plugin it is interfacing with. Even better, the unit is compatible with any VSTi and can be used in tandem with its Virtual Instrument Player software in order to grant access to the user’s entire VSTi library!
