Akai entered the electronic musical instrument world in 1984 with a purpose:
to give artists the tools they need to express and explore new musical ideas.

Built on Akai's advanced technology and long-standing expertise in music, our instruments have become powerful creative tools for musicians, engineers and producers all over the world.

In 1984, Akai decided to expand its technological focus to the field of electronic musical instruments. In the ensuing years, Akai has introduced breakthrough products in the areas of sampling, synthesis and digital recording, many of which (such as the legendary S-Series samplers and the MPC series) have become industry standards in music and post-productions studios around the world.
