Which drivers & software needed to run Advance 25 midi keyboard with MacBook Pro?

Hi all, I have an Akai Advance 25 midi keyboard. Which drivers and/or software do I need to download from Akai professional site to be able to hook up the keyboard to my Macbook Pro? It's not super clear which I need. Thanks for the support! -Jason

  • Hey Jason,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Advance 25 is class compliant and does not require a driver to interface with your macOS. While capable of being used with many DAWS, the Advance is specifically designed to implement hardware control of the VIP Software. VIP comes with your purchase of the Advance and can be downloaded directly from your Akai account after registering the controller.

    Here is a helpful guide to get you up and running with VIP as well as your additional included content:

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
