    Akai MPD18 - "Full sized pads in a small, super portable package"

    01/22/12

    What I love most about this unit is it is quite small and light compared to my MPD 24. I can put this in my laptop case with my MBP and still have room to spare. It also is much better when you are traveling (car/plane) to have this smaller unit as…
