Product Description

The 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.

Akai MPD218 Drum Pad Controller 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
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.

Cheap. Responsive.

Product Review

I bought this because I needed a small controller with reliable pads and you just can't beat Akai pads. Simple if you need a 16 pad controller. This does the job. If you need more, this ain't it. I like the pads and the price. It actually exceeded my expectations because I wasn't expecting the pads to be so legit. I have had it a week. Still figuring out software and remapping situations. Not so much fun.

Nice piece of gear

Product Review

Sensitive & comfortable pads, good presets, easy to add your own samples. Took some time to get used to but it performs very nicely and it’s a great learning tool before purchasing some of the more expensive models. Would highly recommend this.

Yeah, I'm buying another one. It's great!!

Product Review

I love it. Since I'm learning finger drumming, the pads are in the right place with the right sensitivity for ghost notes. And it's easy to program.

Best 4x4 pad controller for the money

Product Review

6 midi-assignable knobs, 16 pad presets and maps. Small, solidly-built. This is the third Akai MPD218 I've owned since late 2015. Love it.
