iPK25 is now SynthStation 25


I found this at the Akai site, which makes me a bit more hopeful about the SynthStation and the keyboard formally know as the iPK25:

The SynthStation app transforms your iPhone or iPod touch into a portable music production studio for mobile music creation. SynthStation gives you three powerful synthesizers for creating and modifying sonic textures used for melodies, chords, and bass lines. drawing on Akai Professional’s rich history in synthesis and taking a page from the newest miniAK synth, SynthStation sounds great and offers wide-ranging sonic flexibility with its virtual analog synthesis. To take full-performance advantage of its power, SynthStation mates perfectly with Akai’s Synthstation 25 docking synth keyboard. SynthStation enables you to create and produce music anywhere on your iPhone or iPod touch.
  • Three virtual-analog synthesizers, each with three oscillators
  • Range of drum kits and sequencer
  • Create melodic and accompaniment parts using arpeggiator with preset patterns
  • Unlimited creativity with effects and filters
  • Seamlessly compatible with Akai’s Synth
  • station 25 docking keyboard controller

Really looking forward to this. Only problem will be resisting the temptation to buy the app for $9.99before the keyboard comes out (with voucher to get the app for free)...

Any devs got the API yet from Akai and planning to incorporate it into your apps?

They are actually two separate products. The iPK25 was the hardware and Synth Station is the software.

But does anyone know when the app will actually release? They said January, but there's only 2 days left, and it's Akai so I really don't believe them. Guitar Center is listing the keyboard at $99 for an early April release, we'll see I guess.

What a strange product intro. They must have a short-staffed marketing department!

First the NAMM demo of the keyboard with the app, with info on their website. Then it all disappears. And now, the app shows up on their website, referencing the keyboard, but there is no info on the keyboard!

WTF?

I wish Akai would give us some news on where this is

Can't wait!
