Practical, high quality - Reviews Akai Professional LPD8

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.
