Akai Professional MAX49 Quick Start Manual
Red letter days Rendered in a slightly darker version of pillar box red, MAX49 is, as its name suggests, a four-octave controller keyboard featuring velocity and semi-weighted aftertouch control which also offers 12 rubberized drum pads, eight vertical ribbon-control sliders, transport control buttons, Pitch and Modulation Wheels, and a fairly comprehensive collection of buttons hinting at extended functionality. You can either wrap plug-ins individually or wrap everything in a single pass. Performance is encouraged from the sliders too. Whilst these can be used to write automation in your chosen DAW, they can also be used to spit out data to control, for instance, LFO speeds within synths. As you can tap to jump positions on each slider, it would therefore be possible to use these as a wobble-bass speed control, among many other performance possibilities, triggering those jumps on the fly. Speaking of both the pads and the faders, as there are Bank buttons for each of these, there is a total of 48 pad assignments and 32 potential slider targets, providing control over 80 parameters directly from the front panel as a result, which should keep you busy.
