Akai Professional announced the MPD26 USB/MIDI Pad Controller and introduced it at the 2010 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA.

The MPD26 is a MIDI-over-USB pad controller with genuine MPC pads.

The heart of the MPD26 is its bank of 16 velocity and pressure-sensitive MPC pads. Producers can access four different sounds from each MPC pad for a total of 64 at a time. The MPD26 also features the MPC series' assignable Q-Link controllers, enabling musicians to control a wide range of parameters in their software in real time, the company says.

The MPD26's six assignable Q-Link faders and six assignable Q-Link 360° knobs enable producers to spend less time with the mouse and more time making music. The MPD26 also has a dedicated set of transport controls for instant access to the most commonly used DAW or sequencing-software controls.

Pricing & Availability
The MPD26 will be available from pro audio and musical instrument retailers in January 2010. It has a U.S. Retail Price of $399.00 and an estimated street price of $199.00.
