Frequently Asked Questions
What is Bluetooth LE?
Bluetooth Low Energy, also known as Bluetooth LE or Bluetooth Smart, is a means to wirelessly link electronic devices. Bluetooth LE consumes a lesser amount of power than older iterations of Bluetooth.
Can I use this with my Windows computer?
Yes, but it can only be connected via wired USB connection. Transferring MIDI via Bluetooth LE is not officially supported. Although workarounds do exist, latency is typically a factor that adversely affects workflow.
Is a driver required to connect this device to my computer?
No! This device is class compliant with both MacOS and iOS devices.
How can I tell if my computer running MacOS has Bluetooth LE?
- Click the Apple symbol in your taskbar.
- Select About This Mac.
- Click on the More Info...
- Click on theS ystem Report...
- Select Bluetooth from the sidebar on the left, underneath "Hardware."
- Scan down the list of information until you find LMP Version.
If your Mac is equipped with Bluetooth 4.0, LMP Version will say 0x6. Anything lower than that is an older version of Bluetooth.
What if my iOS app does not support Bluetooth MIDI?
Many of the iOS synth and audio apps that you love may not yet support Bluetooth MIDI and may not offer any options to select input from your LPK25 Wireless. No problem! There are a few MIDI utility apps, such as midimittr that will accept the connection and route it to your favorite apps.
Wait! What if I still have more questions?
Don’t worry! You can visit akaipro.com/support for detailed FAQs and technical support.

Number one, and this is a big deal for most people, the (cheaply surface mounted) mini usb port has broken 3 times, rendering the controller 100% useless. Thankfully a good friend builts analog studio equipment for a living and has always been willing to help solder it back. But if you don't have a friend like this... well this is probably the end of your controller. It's the typical cheap production you see in controllers like this, but yeah, maybe good to know. My advice is buy a right angle usb plug!
Another potentially important note, this controller has very bad velocity sensitivity reading. Don't buy this is you're trying to write expressive piano pieces on the go. It jumps from 6 to 127 wayyyyy too easily. This won't matter if you're using mono synths or organs or whatnot, but be aware that this tool isn't going to inspire much expressive or dynamic creativity.
Other than that, 3 years later, I still use it! Super portable and easy to use, never had a problem with plug and play. Just know what you are buying!
For me, the LPK25 solves the problem. The wireless feature helps me play it anywhere within reasonable range of the iPad Pro, and it easily connects via GarageBand bluetooth pairing. While the limited number of keys makes it challenging to replicate full piano/keyboard-driven pieces, its versatility helps me greatly in writing riffs and songs, particularly with the built-in arpeggiator. Sound is great right out of the iPad; I had some latency issues with wireless headphones, but plug-in phones work great.
The BIG plus, beyond wireless connectivity and so many iOS apps that are supported, is portability - I can pack this in my mini-pack and take it wherever I go with my iPad. At that level, it's a game-changer. Hats off to Akai for this wonderful device.
The only issue I have with this keyboard is the mini-usb port. It is very cheap and was some wiggle in the port when I bought it. After carrying it in a laptop bag with the cable still inside the port (for a year or so), it stopped working. Apparently this is a common issue. Luckily, I am an engineer with just enough soldering experience to be dangerous. I followed the steps here:[...] and got it back up and running in a matter of an hour or so. I now have a USB cable hard-wired into the keyboard. Used some JB PlasticWeld to keep the joint stiff, and it has been going strong ever since. I think akai should genuinely consider hardwiring a cable as opposed to leaving an exposed port, but that's just my opinion.
Regardless, I would still recommend this keyboard.
It is very small (about the width of a 15" laptop), and very lightweight. Great for playing on the go in tight spaces (airplane, bus, etc). The arpeggiator works great, as does raising or lowering octave on the fly. The included USB cable has the same connection as a PlayStation 3 controller, making it easy to buy cable extensions if desired.
If you intend to use this in a home studio or other situation where you will not be traveling with it, I'd suggest another product. If looking for something to jam with on the bus that isn't feature-packed, however, this is the perfect unit for you.
The bluetooth works and the hardwire USB worked, too.
Keys are very cheap-feeling and have no pressure sensitivity. They are kinda stiff and it's hard to play.
The ports on the side to connect USB or power to look very sensitive and almost loose, so I would be careful about those.
For the money, this is definitely not worth it. I would save up a little more money and buy a nicer brand/model that can actually benefit you and your creation.
