Compact 8-pad controller with built-in sound library.

The MPX8SD from Akai takes everything Akai is known for, and packs it into a compact 8-pad controller with a built-in library of popular sounds, samples, and bumps. The 8 velocity-sensitive pads give you plenty of room for expression, and creativity. USB MIDI and standard MIDI I/O gives you all the connection options you need to start making music. Drag and drop samples via the included sound editor program for Mac and PC, or load in sounds through the SD card slot from your SD cards. The MPX8SD has all of the beat-making possibilities of it's larger cousins, but in a size that can move as freely as you do.

  • Neat idea but...

    As reviewed by John Hanks on 8/29/2013

    Bought this a week or so ago to check it out. Nice idea, in my opinion. I was able to load some samples into my SD card. They played great and the pads are responsive. However, when I hooked up MIDI it ran into trouble. It would transmit for a few seconds and then stop. I tried everything, thinking I had done something wrong on my end. I ended up returning it. However, I will probably give this unit a second chance because I think it will be useful and handy. I wish they would go ahead and make a 16 pad version of this - simple pads that play samples and can send MIDI. By the way, the sales folks were great and very helpful.

  • Amazing Amazing Amazing!!!!!!

    As reviewed by Ben Demers on 9/9/2013

    Wow!!! What can I say? Amazing!!!! I can believe they finally made a sampler at the right price and great features. You can change tone of sample with reverb and the up and down pitch feature. This is simple to navigate through. First you have to buy sd card and format it. Its nothing hard. Then you have to run update of firmware but the website offers simple easy to do instructions. The triggers are durable and sensitive. The lcd screen is easy to find sounds. You can even do one shot, hold, or loop on each pad. The one feature missing is a metronome with looper feature for beats. The fact that it can be used as midi controller or analog makes up for that missing feature. Its worth $100.00 easy. Must buy and must try!!!!!

  • Alternative Use for MPX*

    As reviewed by Jay on 2/2/2015

    Our group is non-musical. We are a volunteer organization operating a publicly owned outdoor shooting range. To manage a safe place to enjoy shooting sports, we have a PA system and make announcements (aka issue commands) to 'cease fire' or that 'the line is safe to go downrange' and 'shooting is resumed' etc. Using a mic and a live voice is OK, but recently a volunteer created a very professional recording of these 4 routine announcements. All we needed was an easy method for the tower officer to play back the mp3/wav files with the simple push of a 'button' (aka pad). This works exactly as we had hoped and has performed flawlessly thus far. Easy to configure, a great solution for our alternative use of this sample player.
