A killer I tell you!!

By LooLoo13, 16/12/2013
Used for about 1 month
I have tried many models of midi controllers (DJ \ Production)
most: Duty (to those seen in the size and concurrency could've ca not be the case)
But ultra-ultra simple to use set
Ultra mobile
-4 Banks controls easy noon to edit parametrer
EVERY-series more encoders pads has its own MIDI channel

least I do not see too ... ah if
The mini-usb plug which seems a little fragile
Encoders, a bit flat (provided that you have normal fingers it does not pose a concern)
And c is

AKAI first as controller (MPC 2000XL) I am excited to finish a qualitée of materials through the use of price and integration with various apps (perfect with live 8 for me very well for managing traktor decks remixes )
c is flawless
Frankly c's all good and not expensive more why deprive
Like everything that is good he did that a default
"We want more"
It makes you want to buy the next size desus
and I do it again this choice without hesitation

Great Pads

By bazzzoukk, 12/03/2014
My problem was to play finger very precisely supplements driving rhythms DHS Sonic Core and sounds of madness, and save them in DAW, so I wanted very reactive pads, instant. I play the djembe and darbuka, so it has to follow. Already have several DAW controller, the knobs and sliders other dedicated I was not interested.

The LPD8 fulfill all these conditions, his pads respond excellently, very fast, accurate on the velocity and firepower.

For € 38 and 1 year warranty, what can one want more? The construction is solid and I broke out like crazy. This is an excellent complement when did want to play a machine without breaking the bank.

For less, changes in banks are zero, completely ornate, at least 4-5 seconds manipulation is unusable on the same track, so you must tell the DAW that cares. But if you work like me in successive recording layers, it does not matter.

Practical, high quality

By PriXL, 16/04/2014
I have the machine for 2-3 years.

I quite uses mpd and apc.

It is a practical tool, its small size allows it to carry around everywhere, and it is a good complement for particular live (I used to run my samples to scratch on my plate, or to launch effects).

According to dial is another thing, the pads are not necessarily useful for me, but they are quite responsive to what I could try. In the studio he can fill the holes depending on the hardware you have.

Another positive point is the ability to expand the number of pads 32 through an internal bank, but the selection manipulation is not the easiest, so ultimately it is fairly limited, especially when you have a live set a little "tight" ...
Small bonus, the pads have a bright orange contour lights on when support is gadget, but it can take effect.

Negative point, the size of the knobs is a bit small, which sometimes complicates the grip, but it is possible to change them.

The price is clearly affordable, but it is not essential tool, I buy for myself as a backup machine to complement my keyboard or add missing knobs CPA 20.

I do not know if I would do this choice, not for the quality of the material, but its lack of use in my home studio.
