From organ volume swells to electric keyboard tremolo and more, the Expression Pedal can control a wide selection of MIDI CCs, adding another dimension to your playing. Whether you are in the studio or on the big stage, step into the big moment with the Akai Professional Expression Pedal.
The Akai Expression Pedal can be used with any keyboard or controller equipped with an expression, volume or assignable pedal input. Expression pedals give a player control over various sound parameters, such as volume, filter modulations, and effects, resulting in greater dynamic range and expression in their performances.
By setting the proper control range of the pedal, any player can control their keyboard’s or controller’s expression parameter to maximize its potential as an effective tool for live sound sculpting. The Akai Expression Pedal is a universal expression pedal, meaning it will work with any device with an expression pedal input.
However, there are a couple of different standards employed between various manufacturers, so Akai has included a mode switch on the bottom of the pedal for compatibility. When in the “Akai” position, the Akai Expression Pedal will work with all of Akai Professional keyboards and controllers.
When using the Akai Expression Pedal with another company’s device, you may need to move this switch to the “Other” position if the pedal is not behaving properly. Keep in mind that the “Akai” position may work on some non-Akai Professional products—try both switch settings to find the best match for your equipment.
