    Great Pads

    Akai Professional LPD8Published on 03/12/14 at 09:17
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    My problem was to play finger very precisely supplements driving rhythms DHS Sonic Core and sounds of madness, and save them in DAW, so I wanted very reactive pads, instant. I play the djembe and darbuka, so it has to follow. Already have several DAW controller, the knobs and sliders other dedicated I was not interested.

    The LPD8 fulfill all these conditions, his pads respond excellently, very fast, accurate on the velocity and firepower.

    For € 38 and 1 year warranty, what can one want more? The construction is solid and I broke out like crazy. This is an excellent complement when did want to play a machine without breaking the bank.

    For less, changes in banks are zero, completely …

    For less, changes in banks are zero, completely ornate, at least 4-5 seconds manipulation is unusable on the same track, so you must tell the DAW that cares. But if you work like me in successive recording layers, it does not matter.

    How long have you use it?
    2 years

    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    No

    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    More:
    - It has assignable knob and pad 4 times (8x4 + 8x4 pad knobs)
    - It is easily recognizable as the daw
    - It is lightweight and fits easily in a bag
    - The pads are nice, backlit, good response

    Less:
    - No quick passage through a single button on a preset (prog) to another (you must enter a combination of three buttons to access another program assigned)
    - No separation knob / pad for the assignment, ie when a program passes to the other, all the buttons (+ pad knob) change registry.
    - Knob is not endless (ok for the p…

    How would you rate the quality / price?
    A little expensive in my opinion ....

    With experience, you do again this choice?
    With a little more money, combined Korg nano 1 (16 pad and 9 fader two separate controllers) is more convenient and allows greater ease of handling.
    But he gave me quite a lot of services for small compositions trip!
    So I keep it and I'm glad! ;-)

    I've had three years, I do not use it at all for what it is intended. With I control guitar rig, serving me knobs assigned to those pedals / amps, and DRUMPADS to control activation / deactivation effects. To do this, it is very convenient, the LEDs remain lit pads when the effect is on and you can have a set of 4x8 knobs to control four separate effects.

    You understand that I have a quiet use. Yet the knobs quickly took the game and the No. 5 and not two in a somewhat random works. Damage elsewhere, because everything is really handy, USB powered, with a dedicated software and setting queles pads look good réactigs.

    I know there is no equivalent avols I kept it but I strongly advise against buying are, especially to serve as controller for drums Laquel just too fragile.

    Simple and tasteful, and more solid

    Akai Professional LPD8Published on 07/31/13 at 12:03
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I use it at least 3 years.

    I also had a Korg nanoPAD which proved useless.

    This is a product that is strong, simple, works with any computer or operating system. Quite interesting to trigger samples and manage associated effects.
    A little less usable for patterns of rhythm, for example, but I'm not very good at it.

    The value for money is unbeatable. I remake this choice without problem.

    To stay in the same price range and type of controller,
    I tried nanoPAD of Korg.

    The more picture is not his strength! I abused my LPD8 long and it still works like the first day! the pads are reagents there are no worries at the velocity is nickel.

    The least that would be the small size of the knobs, and possibly to have been an endless more.

    Without any hesitation! When the quality of the pads compared to its cousin the nanoPAD we see is not a file (many posts on the forum for their yelling korg pads that fall quickly rad ...).

    Personally I use it to manage live and Turnado Effectrix and it's very very good job :)

    I board carefree people willing to invest in a small controller really cheap and very good quality
