This photo of Steve Aoki in his villa in Ibiza shows him in front of what looks like a practice DJ setup, with a TV for the visuals, Pioneer gear, Serato running on his laptop, and KRK monitors. To Aoki's left is the red Akai MAX49 MIDI keyboard controller. This photo is a screenshot from Aoki's documentary, ["I'll Sleep When I'm Dead"](https://www.netflix.com/title/80118930).more
Pads are great and keys are good but I must say the touch faders are a bit unusable really. Going to likely replace this with a mpk249 at some point to get knobs and faders and a better daw integration.
I use this midi keyboard and it is interestingly comfortable to me because some people don't like medium velocity keys while I am used to it. If you have synchronization issues, it depends on the computer because if the computer is laggy, of course the keyboard wont be synchronized the way you want it to be, Even the slightest lag can make the keyboard a bit off. Keep that in mind
