Akai have released the new version of their acclaimed VIP software, the first piece of music software that lets you control all your VST instruments and effects from your Akai Advance Keyboard as either stand-alone software or for use with your favourite digital audio workstation (DAW).

VIP 1.0 changed the landscape for Midi Controllers, allowing users immediate control of any parameter of their virtual instruments, VIP 2.0 builds on this, with new features that allow for an even quicker work flow. Automatic plug-in parameter mapping, ‘tagging’ for quick sound recall and the addition of “Multis” (allowing you to combine up to 8 patches) make the Akai Advance the ultimate tool for live and in the studio.

VIP 2.0 is available now for all AKAI Advance Series, including Advance 25, Advance 49, Advance 61, and for a limited time contains Air Creative FX Collection Plus.
