This is Akai's flagship pad controller with genuine MPC pads.
The MPD32 Control Surface is Akai Professional's ultimate velocity-sensitive pad controller for musicians and DJs. Modeled after the industry-standard MPC series, it's one of the most expressive software beat controllers available.
Sixteen velocity and pressure-sensitive, genuine MPC pads provide exceptional feel and expression. It has 4 selectable pad banks for a total of 64 playable pads. Eight assignable faders, 8 assignable switches, and 8 assignable 360° knobs transmit MIDI Control Change data and combine for unprecedented creative freedom. Three selectable control banks extend the number of available faders, buttons, and knobs to 24 each. Two assignable footswitch inputs, and an expression pedal input, take the total assignable controller count to 75, for an amazing degree of control options.
The Akai MPD32 MIDI Controller also features transport controls for interfacing with your DAW and sequencing applications. It is a fully programmable controller and multifunctional control surface, that fits perfectly within any audio production or performance environment.
