Arturia MicroLab: Small 25-Key Go-Anywhere Controller

Here’s Arturia MicroLab, a small and portable MIDI 25-key controller targeted to anyone looking for something with either a small footprint or just being able to bring your controller wherever you go.

Besides the 25 velocity sensitive keys it got smart features like a small dent around the rubberised casing where you can safely store the usb cable when not in use, chord mode and touch strips for pitch bend and modulation.

Wireless Controllers from Akai: LPD8 and LPK25

Wireless Controllers from Akai: LPD8 and LPK25

Akai announced that they’ve updated their highly portable controllers LPD8 and LPK25 to wireless versions.

The LPD8 Wireless still sports eight pads and knobs but now comes with a full-level function that removes the velocity sensitivity if so wanted. The LPK25 Wireless keyboard now looks a little bit sturdier than before but comes with a sustain pedal input. For those of you who didn’t like the previous brown/orange-ish color scheme (me included) both of ’em now only use red/black too.

Both the LPD8 and LPK25 will be Mac, iOS and Windows friendly through USB and Bluetooth and will start shipping in December for £70 each (~USD$78)
