Akai have a long and highly distinguished history in the design and construction of drum machines and samplers going back to the mid 80’s and the birth of the MPC line. The LPD8 distils the very essence of this line into a well featured yet low cost drum pad solution, designed to accompany your laptop wherever you choose to perform.

Akai LPD8

The 8 backlit pads are highly responsive and fully velocity sensitive making them perfect for playing in or programming both rhythmic and melodic parts. The additional 8 Q-Link control knobs can be mapped inside your software to allow an extra level of control, allowing tweaking that is far more hands on than using just a standard mouse and keyboard.

Akai MIDI Controller

Measuring a mere 13 inches in size and less than a pound in weight, this ultra-portable beat programming solution can easily fit into any laptop case or bag, giving you high quality controller within reach for whenever and wherever the inspiration strikes.

The controller is both USB bus powered and fully class compliant, which means no extra drivers or power adaptors are needed, just plug in and assign it in your sequencer and you’re ready to rock.
