Great pads but not a MPCPublished on 10/15/12 at 21:01
Setting the AKAI MPD 18 up is really easy. There are no hard instructions to follow it is pretty much plug and play as long as your system meets all of the requirements. The MPD 18 is very portable which is a plus, you can pack it up and put it in your bag to take with your laptop setup and have your drum pads anywhere you go.
The issue with AKAI MPD 18 to me is that you can go out and purchase a MIDI controller keyboard that has drum pads already on it. So you are really only purchasing 16 MPC “like” pads and that’s all you are really getting. You would be much better off if you can just save up some money for the MPC 1000 then you will have the pads and sequencing or if you just want pads just get a keyboard controller with drum pads on it. It makes a lot more sense, but if you are sold on the AKAI MPD 18 then buy it because it is a great quality product. But after a while it got kind of pointless for me to keep it around.

The hit of the pad is nice, not too expensive, good quality, and simple hyper. To change the rating of each pad must pass through the small program, we made it, it works fine. Listed use it thickens. My very personal opinion as a drummer is this lack of sensitivity. (Unless I missed something QLQ, apart from the full level. I corrugerais if I find something) the ghost notes, and other mini roullements really do not pass all tappoter not enough ... too bad for me, that's what I expected (such tappotter burreau on the job with 10 fingers without effort). I tested it with EZdrummer and other classic sounds normal velocity from plusgins Cubase ... However to launch loops, do some live, or schedule quiet, it is more than enough, and that's better than a heavy touch keyboard (like I own).
-I Have 2 weeks.
-I like its simplicity, its 18 pads that allow a diverse game. Good design, the power supply via USB.
-I have not tried other, and I should have! As there was no prior notice, I started.
I had BAR roland tr, Yam ry, which not respond so bad. the akai done a little better.
-Report Very good value following the use made of it.
-I'll See to part with it because not sensitive enough for my taste. Would agree to many users hom-studio owner, but I was expecting a little more sensitive to pad strikes like me. (I'll have to put more expensive damage)
I put him anyway 8 because it is a good product for its price, and you have to buy if the sensitivity is not your main expectation.
Zic good to all, and a good choice!</span>
