Product Description

  • 18 assignable 360-dgree potentiometers accessible via 3 banks

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.

Goodies
Along with the improved functionality we’ve added iOS compatibility using the Camera Connection Kit (sold separately) and included over $400 of free software. Titles include: Akai Pro MPC Essentials, Big Bang Drums and Big Bang Cinema from Sonivox, Ableton Live Lite, and Software Preset Editor.

Have plenty of harddrive space and watch tutorials
What is your opinion of this product?
In order for it to work, you need to have plenty of space on your harddrive and watch the video to get it right;also you have to download MPD218 Editor. I believe that it should come with a DVD for Novice users such as myself for ease of frustration.
