Experience the Difference
The first improvement agreed upon over the development cycle were the Thick Fat MPC pads, a new design that creates an unprecedented user experience. The MPD232 also has an expanded control set of eight knobs, eight buttons and eight faders in three banks, resulting in a total of 72 total controls. This enables you increased control over your sounds and effects.
MIDI information is sent over its plug-and-play USB interface for use on Mac or PC, eliminating the need for drivers. The USB connection powers the MPD232 so the included USB cable is all you need.
Along with the improved functionality, the MPD232 features iOS compatibility using the Camera Connection Kit (sold separately) and included free software. Titles include: Akai Pro MPC Essentials, Big Bang Drums and Big Bang Cinema from Sonivox, Ableton Live Lite, and Software Preset Editor.
Many years of research and customer feedback have led directly to some of the most capable pad controllers Akai has developed. It is this constant contact with the user base that makes Akai such an enduring brand. These MPDs are the perfect bridge between your creativity and your computer-based studio.

Comments about Akai Professional MPD232 Pad Controller:
The layout is pretty nice. The only objection that i have is that i cannot get the MPC Essentials software to map with this device. Granted, this is an "MPD" device.
I am not the only person that has commented on this issue. If you create hardware Akai, make software that is fully functional with that hardware.
