AK-7 Core MIDI Keyboard Controller App

AK-7 Core Midi Controller App

AK-7 Core is an inexpensive wireless MIDI keyboard controller for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. It features a full-size realistic 3d piano keyboard which you can zoom and slide around to find the range of notes you want to play.

It works great with Apple’s Garageband, MainStage and Logic as well as any other DAW which supports MIDI input.

It also includes a switchable piano sound set for practicing anywhere without a MIDI connection.

There are options to change the view between 3d and 2d views, as well as standard MIDI options such as transpose, MIDI channel select etc.

Velocity is adjustable and is based on the position you hit each key. There are pitch bend and modulation sliders on the main screen too. (these only affect the MIDI output, not the onboard sound)

The wireless MIDI works using CoreMIDI so so additional drivers are needed on a Mac. Windows users will need to use a driver such as “rtpMIDI”.

On an iPad, it’s possible to use the Camera Connection Kit and a USB to MIDI cable to make a direct wired MIDI connection to your music workstation if there’s no wifi available.

Supported devices:
iPad 1 and iPad2
iPhone 3GS or newer
iPod Touch 3rd generation or newer

AK-7 Core is available for $1.99

  • iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements. My work is published by Magix Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Pakotec, Loopmasters, Acoustica, Xmix, Sound Trends, and many more.
