AK-7 Core is a 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.
Due to the smooth 3d graphics, it needs fairly modern hardware...
iPad 1 and iPad2
iPhone 3GS or newer
iPod Touch 3rd generation or newer
If you are using an older device, we'd recommend you use our older "AK-7 Midi Keyboard" app instead.
Great Little Keyboard
App works well. I use it for sibelius and logic when I am somewhere I don't have access to a proper midi keyboard. Took a little bit of effort to get it to talk to my mac but it has proved invaluable. The reviewer that says it doesn't make sound is correct. This app acts as a keyboard for music programs on my Mac. It is useless on its own! Great App
Very Good App
I read a review that gave this app no credit. In fact, I took a risk to buy it because it looks so good and much more visual to play than most midi keyboards. Well, i don't regret it. It does what it says on the tin. Very good with a 3D keyboard! I love the colour of the keys . Well done.
Excellent just needs Audiobus
Great little App just what I were looking for to control and layer my Apps , any chance of making this app Audiobus compatible
