It comes with a custom versions of Ableton Live Lite so you can start creating right out of the box. All CC ranges can be set ie, minimum and maximum values , which is essential to prevent overshooting on filter resonance control, for instance, or limiting DAW fader throws to peak at 0dB. If you don’t need a keyboard most of them stink anyway , I would def. These can communicate transport information with software via four different protocols: I was pleasantly surprised at how useful the controllers are, as well. Rated 5 out of 5 by spycraft from Great unit!!!! In fact, our only real gripe is that no PSU is supplied.

No Longer Available Update Location close. There is a gap between the rubber pads and the underlying sensors, however, so you really have to mash the pads to get them to trigger.

Three selectable control banks extend the number of available faders, buttons and knobs to 24 each. The only real negative I’ve found so far is the lack of a power button.

Akai Professional MPD32 USB/Midi MPC Pad Controller | eBay

It comes with a aakai versions of Ableton Live Lite so you can start mpdd32 right out of the box. Long coveted for mpd23 rhythm musicality inherent in the MPC series, the unit allows for expressive and intuitive programming of percussion and rhythm material, without the expense of having to buy a full blown sampler. I must say that the installation was a breeze without problems. This thing can npd32 live performance, all the way down to a beginner, and It’s easy to learn and adjust parameters and settings as well.


Very solid build very pleasing surface view. A fully reprogrammable controller, the MPD32 is a malleable and multi-functional tool that fits perfectly within any production or performance environment.

As well as the 16 MPC-style pads, eight rotary knobs and eight faders with eight lit toggle switches beneath there are three more input possibilities: Control pad was received quick and intact.

Built around the controls and technology from Akai Mod32 industry-standard MPC series, the MPD32 is an expressive and intuitive instrument for the studio and stage. The 16 pads are extended by the four pad bank switches that allow for four sets of pad assignments – this is one of the functions that really helped the MPCs become such renowned performance tools. I was pleasantly surprised at how useful the controllers aka, as well.

Loads of controls to be assigned, you may even run out of things to assign! With the audio production market now full of control surfaces, Akai is relying on the classic look of its MPC range to make the MPD32 stand out from the crowd. In addition to Live and nearly any other MIDI software, you can also drive any MIDI hardware, such as synths, sound modules, samplers, sequencers, drum machines, and more.

See any errors on this page? All alai all, I’m very happy with this. You also get two assignable footswitch inputs and an expression-pedal input for even more ways to control and perform with the MPD Top View Show More Less.

In fact, our only real gripe is that no PSU is supplied. Image 1 of 2 A well-spaced layout means that the MPD32 is great performance tool.


I have gradually moved more and more towards doing all my production work in Logic, so I didn’t really need the MPC’s sampling capacity any more.

The MPD32 has 30 preset slots available in its memory, with each preset containing a total snapshot of the controller assignments and mpd322.


You can access four different banks of sounds from the MPC pads for mpd2 total of 64 sounds at your fingertips. Though the faders have a shorter throw than those commonly found on mixing desks, they are smooth, sturdy and have enough track to ride levels in a worthwhile fashion.

Not to mention the hassle of booting from a floppy drive this is ! Update Unrecognized Zip Code. I felt confident in the Akai brand as well as the affordability of the product over other drum machines in the market. The pads, faders and switches feel just like they always have on the MPCs, though the knobs have been altered as they can now rotate continuously.

We worried that it might be difficult to get all the akaai, knobs and faders doing what we wanted, but it turns out to be easy. Tap Tempo and Time Division switches come into play here too, though tempo can be set per preset ie, global setup or to incoming MIDI clock.

So far so good.
