Akai MPD32 Performance MIDI Pad Controller
MIDI-synced note-repeat with MPC swing, 16 MPC pads with velocity & pressure-sensitive response, sliders and endless knobs for a total of 72 controllers
The Akai MPD32 Performance Pad controller is the controller you've been waiting for. The MPD32 is a MIDI-over-USB performance pad controller for DJs, programmers, producers and others musicians. Built around the controls and technology from Akai Professional's industry-standard MPC series, the MPD32 is an expressive and intuitive instrument for the studio and stage. The heart of the MPD32 is its bank of 16 velocity and pressure-sensitive MPC pads, an Akai Pro exclusive. You can access 4 different banks of sounds from the MPC pads for a total of 64 sounds at your fingertips.
The MPD32 also borrows the MPC series' assignable Q-Link controllers, enabling you to control nearly any parameters in your software in real time. You get 8 assignable Q-Link faders, 8 assignable Q-Link 360 degree knobs, and 8 assignable Q-Link buttons so you'll spend less time with the mouse and more time making music. Even better, each Q-Link can access 3 different parameters for a total of 72 real-time Q-Links. You also get 2 assignable footswitch inputs and an expression-pedal input for even more ways to control and perform with the MPD32. The MPD32 also gives you a dedicated set of transport controls for instant access to the most commonly used DAW or sequencing-software controls. While the MPC pads and Q-Links might be the heart of the MPD32, its brain is transplanted directly from the MPC. That's because it is not just a control surface; it contains some of the key MPC technologies that have made the MPC the de facto standard it is. MPC Note Repeat is a capability that enables the MPD (or MPC) to automatically play a rhythm pattern, such as 16th notes on a hi-hat, for accuracy and speed of entry. MPC Swing is sometimes referred to as 'the heart and soul of hip hop' because it turns perfectly aligned sequences into human-feeling time alignments. You can specify exactly the degree and timing of swing you want to apply for the perfect feel.
The MPD32 also has MPC Full Level and MPC 16-Level on its pads. The MPD32 sends MIDI information over its plug-and-play USB interface so you can use it with your Mac or PC without installing any drivers. The USB connection even powers the MPD32 so the included USB cable is all you need. It comes with a custom versions of Ableton Live Lite and FXpansion BFD Lite software so you can start creating right out of the box. 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. Whether inspiration strikes you in the studio or on stage, the MPD32 gives you a comprehensive compliment of input and control devices matched with the peerless feel of the MPC, only from Akai Professional.
