Perfectly Practical Plug-and-play Pads

If you're after a straight-to-the-point USB pad controller, then you could hardly do better than the Akai MPD218. The MPD218 comes loaded with 16 genuine MPC pads for that unmistakably thick and fat feel, plus you can switch between three banks for up to 48 pads worth of control. The same goes for the six assignable pots, which let you take control of 18 parameters, such as volume, pan, filter cutoff, and more. One of the other MPC features on the MPD218 that the old-school music creators here at Sonido Live dig is MPC Note Repeat and everyone can appreciate the way class-compliant USB lets you hook up your computer or iOS device totally hassle-free.
