Akai Professional - Groove Sampler, Master Keyboards, DAW-Controller, Recording-Equipment

Akai, founded in 1929, manufactured motors for film projectors ever since. Through contact with the US manufacturer Roberts, Akai has been manufacturing and selling tape recorders since the 1950s, later under the Akai brand. In the 1980s, the Akai Professional division was developed. Under this label Akai became famous for their samplers. Akai's breakthrough in the field of musical instruments came with the S-series samplers - at the time the most famous representative was the S1000, followed by the still extremely popular music production stations of the MPC series and shifted to the field of MIDI controllers.
