The MPD18 is described as "the smallest-sized model in Akai Professional's line of MPD pad controllers."

The heart of the MPD18 is its bank of 16 velocity and pressure-sensitive MPC pads. Users can access three different banks of sounds from the pads for a total of 48 sounds at once, the company says. The MPD18 also borrows the MPC series' assignable Q-Link controllers, enabling users to control nearly any parameters in their software in real time on an assignable Q-Link fader and an assignable Q-Link button.

The MPD18 can send MIDI information over its plug-and-play USB interface for use with Mac or PC without installing any drivers. The USB connection also powers the MPD18 so musicians can use the controller with no power supply. The MPD18 can control virtually any MIDI software, as well as MIDI hardware, such as synthesizers, sound modules, samplers, sequencers, drum machines and more, Akai assures.

Pricing & Availability
The MPD18 is available from musical instrument and professional audio retailers and has a U.S. Retail Price of $199.00 with an estimated street price of $99.00.
