A wireless controller has been in demand for some time with many DJs and producers calling for wire-free operation. Now Akai have released two new wireless Bluetooth MIDI controllers, the LPD8 and the LPK25.

These two new controllers are easily transportable and can be fitted into a backpack or laptop case. Both are battery powered allowing users to have clutter free operation while on-the-go.

The LPK25 is a twenty five key MIDI keyboard while the LPD8 wireless is an eight pad MIDI controller.

Both controllers can be connected to iOS or other computer based software for making music and they have a USB connection.

The models are under £70 and they have four programmable memory banks. The controllers display versatility and flexibility expanding the possibilities for mobile producers.

The Akai LPK25 and LPD8 will be on sale from next month.
