That crazy scream. That epic kick drum. That creepy movie monologue, classic robot voice, or piercing violin interlude — MPX8 puts the sound samples you need at your fingertips. With MPX8, you can load virtually any sound sample via standard SD or SDHC card (sold separately) and assign it to any of the eight backlit velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads.

Overview:
Sample simplicity

Load virtually any sample via standard SD or SDHC card and assign it to any of the MPX8’s eight backlit velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads.

Use it in the studio. Use it live on stage or on air. MPX8 packs proven Akai Pro technology into a compact, durable design that’s built to perform.

Control Software & MIDI Gear
MPX8 also has USB MIDI plus standard MIDI inputs and outputs. Control everything from music software on your laptop to outboard MIDI gear. The included USB cable and 1/8"-to-MIDI adapter make it easy to connect.

Edit with Ease
With the included sample kit editor, you can easily arrange, tune, and add reverb to your samples on your Mac or PC before loading them onto MPX8. The editor’s drag-and-drop functionality makes loading your samples as easy as possible.

Get in the Loops
MPX8 also comes with a free Loop Library download from Akai Pro, plus a large library of standard samples built in, which can be used for live performance in front of a crowd, on a radio show, or for in-studio production.

Lose the Luggage
It’s compact, easy to load, and ready to go. MPX8 packs the sounds you need under great-feeling pads inside a solid Akai Pro design. You get quick and convenient one-touch access to a virtually unlimited number of sounds, shots, stabs, and drops. It’s that simple.

This unit makes sample playback a snap. I use it live to play various audio clips. It is great because it is very easy to hit the pads on the fly. The pre-loaded drum samples are fun for playing around with in my headphones, too.

If you are like me and got tired of how much time it takes to setup an MPC for your music production, then this is the unit to buy! I love it because, I can take my samples that Ive already created inside of Protools and load them onto a SD card. It really makes creating music quick and easy! For the price this unit is a must!
