    Akai MPD218 Drum Pad Controller Product Description

    The Akai MPD218 is a MIDI-over-USB pad controller perfect for producers, programmers, musicians and DJs alike. Its intuitive blend of MPC controls and technologies mesh with easy USB connectivity to bring the feel of classic beat making into the world of computer music production.

    Experience the Difference

    First, Akai stepped up their game by adding new, ultra-sensitive Thick Fat MPC pads, creating an amazingly responsive user experience. The MPD218 also has an expanded control set of six knobs in three banks versus one control on the previous MPD18 model. This will enable you to maximize your sound and give you increased control over effects.

    MIDI information is sent over its plug-and-play USB interface for use on Mac or PC, eliminating the need to install any drivers. The USB connection powers the MPD218 so the included USB cable is all you need.

    Features:

    - 16 Thick Fat backlit MPC pads
    - 48 assignable pads accessible via 3 banks
    - 18 assignable 360-dgree potentiometers accessible via 3 banks
    - MPC Note Repeat and Full Level
    - iOS compatible using the Camera Connection Kit (sold separately)
    - 16 configurable presets
    - USB powered, no AC adapter required
    - Includes Ableton Live Lite, Akai Pro MPC Essentials, Sonivox Big Bang Cinematic Percussion and Big Bang Universal Drums
