User reviews rated 5/5 : Akai MPD16 – Audiofanzine
With its compact form factor, great feeling pads and affordable price, the MPD16 is a excellent addition to your mps16 rig. Once correctly mapped to your sequencer, the slider works great for controlling high hats. I dont know about PCs but for mac it was a breeze to get working. To the left of the pads are mld16 buttons, each with a status LED, and a single slider to send continuous control midi information.
USB jack is poorly designed and will loosen.
My only issue with it has been that sometimes the usb connection will go offline when you send too much information through the controller. When I brought it home, I was surprised when I pulled it out of the box.
Our members also liked: Instead, I had 16 perfectly spaced levels to work with. Helpful Info about the Manufacturer Phone: Akai is releasing the MPD24, which has a lot more features which will be more expensive. When it comes to pros and cons, there were only pros.
I dropped the CD ks my drive, and it read and installed in a matter of a minute or two. It only has one bank, one slider, no note repeat button, and some horrible pads.

Summary The MPD16 greatly enhances the experience of working with percussion soft samplers and synthesizers, as well as traditional hardware sequencers. The pads were soft and thin, sensitive, too. In we moved to a full product offering and page catalog, which over the years has grown to pages. The fader was nice to control the volume in my DAW.
I decided that I was going to take the bit of money I had and pick out a pad control device. Akai stuff works with most computer programs. The days of programing drum sequences via a keyboard are gone forever.
