    150 new, will still have to report the level dpanner but otherwise, I'd rather mediocre (because of the many cheap finish and the differences between type controllers)

    No, in fact I'm bientt replaced either by an Ohm Wood / metal (see for finishing) or a launchpad
    (Although it is not at all the same budget ^^) view. All coupled with a Russian tank named beatstream x 3 (which be replacing my old xboard 25 or at least 16 knobs that remains)

    No on-off button ??? have to unplug the usb, not great in the long run I think.

    I went to the MPD32 because it has a large number of knobs / faders, a total of 16 physical and 48 assignable on a preset, which is very aprciable recording and also live. It meets all my expectations and I was never problem up here, so yes I would do this choice without hesitation.

  • A worthy controller, but not the best

    Akai Professional MPD24Published on 05/15/12 at 17:57
    The MPD24 is a Midi controller from Akai featuring 16 pads, 6 faders and 8 knobs. It has USB and midi in/outs. It's pretty easy to use, and the quality is nice. The pads feel good under your fingers and are responsive, featuring velocity and aftertouch and such. There are four available pad banks. It also has a set of transport controls. The thing is well built, but not as good as some of the other pad controllers out there, and rather small. The big pads are nice, but you only have 16 which means you can pretty much only use it to record drums. If you have the cash, you should spring for the APC40 or the Novation Launchpad, my favorites.

The big pads are nice, but you only have 16 which means you can pretty much only use it to record drums. If you have the cash, you should spring for the APC40 or the Novation Launchpad, my favorites. I wouldn't really recommend it unless you need more pads than come on a lot of midi keyboards, and only want to do drums. Set up and installation are easy, factory presets work fine. The sliders are actually of exceptional quality, and the knobs are pretty smooth. I'm still not sure how useful or economical the thing is though. It's only use is playing drums and samples. It's basically a midi version of the MPC. If you need an MPC type thing, save up and get one, way worth your money compared to this. Also, one thing is that the pads are square, but the sensors below are round! This can cause some velocity and feel issues that can actually be pretty annoying, whereas something button based like the novation launchpad is a better option. I sold this not long after owning it, as it just sat in my unused junk closet gathering dust and taking up space. It's really not a good alternative to the MPC type approach to making music, though I don't like that approach anyways, so you may want a second opinion.

    Specifically, I like the 16 pads that have a very good sensitivity (this is practically the pads of MPC). 127 velocity levels and meet the entire surface of the pad.
    I like the 8 knobs and 360 ° 6 faders that make a good control surface for crushing the various options for the sequencer or any VST.
    I like the transport buttons MMC that allows me to control some sequencers, which reduces the "shuttle" between the controller and the PC.
    I like the large display (70mm * 38mm) super-blue backlight the most beautiful effect! In urban lit as in complete darkness, it's still very readable and flash it well!
    All important information are simultaneously displayed on the screen: name and number of the preset, MIDI channel, CC note, velocity, aftertouch, bank, gauge ... All this together! Super convenient!

    on the other hand, which I find unfortunate is that there is no pedal footswitch input and the absence of a power button ... Anyway I will not quibble too ...

    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    I have tested the M-Audio Trigger Finger I found well below ... At any point ...
    For the Korg PADKONTROL, I have not tried yet ... But that does not tempt me at all to swap my 8 knobs, 6 faders and LCD pad against a single X / Y (which for me is optional) ...

    - How would you rate the quality / price?
    A AKAI drumpad of such quality for only 199 €: excellent quality / price!
    We pay for and more!

    - With experience, you do again this choice? ...
    Oh yes! Rather than 2 times!

    ================================================== ===========

    Finally, I consider the AKAI MPD24 as the reference in terms of controller drumpad!
    I am totally satisfied with this product and I can only recommend it highly!
    The MPD16, PK and TF are now good to be relegated to the dustbin of abyssal depths ...

    I own this wonder for 2 months now. What I like most? The robustness of the craft and the ease of use. This is my first MIDI CONTROLLER but I've tested the Novation Remote 25SL, Novation is a toy next!

    Assigning MIDI is extremely simple and saving presets too. Just read the manual once and go! In addition here is super versatile and used in all stages of production: the creation of beat to final mastering.

    And frankly the price is given saw the possibilities and quality workmanship.

    Go for it!

    the pads are enjoyable but asser c less than an mpc 2000 n the matter is not the same and can give ca bulbs to take off the nails and fingers (yes I m used lol) gift ca c the weak point of No matter which is not all enjoyable, but otherwise it passes c c clearly not the crap either. quality faders feel we see that it will not you stay ds hands on first use they can be a hard and are very well to mix tracks Sparer but neither are only 6 c so quickly. knob the rotary can be configured and also good quality but does not serve a m fact, only an emulation of tb 303 c and then all eight amplemet enough for me, they are endless which is very well thought as the otherwise t would debile on one controller midi.l edition is simple asser in ableton is a midi learn when we not take more akai head and made a preset for live really think so c D elsewhere I would have m more used for the edition of my smpler or otherwise.
    In any case I find that c is a very beautiful remote control for DAW to compose (I do not know piano) surment again I think that choice may be, but that I will go about the 32 mpd because there is a note and repeat c is an option which I used a lot on the mpc but there is a way around this problem with ableton c so not really vital to have the 32. over a 200 euros it's going to ruin it is not the branch and c usb party.
    sinonj I try to fly with an old sampler (Roland S 330) is ca nikel it works like a mpc with an old sound because there is a sequencer integrate S 330. ca is the mpc the poor lol.
    good little controller and frankly I do not see that J will have to buy another this one apart. (Except for 32 100 euro, but again I do not know if it's worth it).
