AKAI & INMUSIC SUPPORT YOUNGSTARS
Receiving support from leading organisations of any industry always comes with an extra sweet touch. So when JR reached out to Akai Professionals’s distubtror InMusic for some help with music equipment for our music production workshops and they kindly supplied Sirlute with affordable MIDI Keyboards, it meant the world to the charity.
The affordable MPK Mini MK3 controllers meant that we was able to get started with our new round of music production workshops for young people. Seeing as the controllers came right in time for the school half-term in October, we got started right away.
Five YoungStars who had never made music before took part in a week long workshop with Sillky, JR and Amani. Using the brand new MIDI controllers by Akai Professional as well as MacBooks and headphones the YoungStars all produced individual beats using Logic X. They learned how to quantise, change the velocity, use note repeat as well several key short cuts. The controllers will continue to be put to good use in our creative programmes offered to our YoungStars with after school club, Tuesday - Thursday, 3pm - 6pm..
