    Akai MPD18 - "Full sized pads in a small, super portable package"

    01/22/12

    What I love most about this unit is it is quite small and light compared to my MPD 24. I can put this in my laptop case with my MBP and still have room to spare. It also is much better when you are traveling (car/plane) to have this smaller unit as…

    Akai MPD24 - "Almost perfect."

    05/03/11

    What I like most about the MPD 24 is the super great feeling knobs on this machine. I know that the most important aspect should be the pads, but I will get to those. The knobs are endless encoders and feel like they belong on a unit three times th…

    Akai MPD24 - "Quality Product. Good Choice. "

    04/04/11

    Great for bangin out some drums, samples, or whatever you choose to put on the pads. It’s even a pretty useful midi controller when you take advantage of the faders and knobs. I got a great product for the price, which isn’t too bad either. …
