Special Pricing Coincides with Release of SynthStation25 Keyboard
Cumberland, R.I. (Nov. 1, 2010) – Akai Professional, the name synonymous with music production, announces a limited-time offer of $1.99, for its SynthStation app for iPod and iPhone to celebrate the availability of Akai Pro’s new SynthStation25 keyboard controller.
SynthStation transforms an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a portable music production studio. SynthStation gives musicians three synthesizers, over 50 drum kits and a full mixing section with multiple effects to create loops and sequence entire songs. Musicians can record song performances to .WAV files and MIDI files of the performance, capturing all modulation, mixing and on-screen keyboard playing. Through a WIFI connection, the files can then be transferred to a computer for playback.
SynthStation comes complete with seamless support for Akai Professional’s new SynthStation25 keyboard, the first ever music controller of its kind for iPhone and iPod touch. SynthStation25 is a portable, 25-note mini-keyboard that features a built-in dock for iPhone and iPod touch, and gives users two octaves of velocity-sensitive keys, pitch and modulation wheels, and physical buttons to control parameters within the SynthStation app. SynthStation25 also has a USB MIDI output that can be used to control any MIDI music software on a Mac or PC. The SynthStation25 keyboard controller is also supported by third-party developer apps including the iVoxel vocoder by Virsyn thanks to the free AkaiConnect developer SDK from Akai Pro.
“SynthStation is a full-blown synthesizer that has expanded music creation on the iPhone,” said Adam Cohen, Director of Business Development, Akai Professional. “To have a portable synth and studio of this quality at $1.99 is unprecedented, so now just about anyone with an iPhone or iPod touch can try their hand at making music.”
SynthStation is available now and can be purchased from the iTunes App Store for $1.99 US for a limited time. More information about the SynthStation25 hardware and the SynthStation app itself is available at www.synthstationapp.com.
