Akai Professional

An ultra-portable production pad and USB-MIDI controller.

The Akai LPD8 Laptop Pad Controller is a USB-MIDI controller for musicians, producers, DJs, and other music creators. The controller measures less than 13" across and weighs less than a pound so it fits easily into your laptop case, backpack, or messenger bag for extreme portability.

The LPD8 is based on Akai Professional's MPC line of iconic music production stations. Producers who love the feel of the Akai MPC and want to work with the software on their computer find that the LPD8 gives their laptop the controls they prefer to a mouse and keyboard.

The Akai LPD8 has 8 orange light-up pads that are velocity-sensitive for programming rhythmic or melodic parts. The pads can also send program-change information to software. Additionally, the LPD8 pad controller has 8 Q-Link knobs you assign to virtually any parameters in the software for hands-on control.

The Akai Professional LPD8 Laptop Pad Controller is plug-and-play compatible with Mac and PC computers requiring no software driver installation or wall power for operation. The LPD8 controller also has 4 memory banks for programming and recalling settings appropriate to the music software programs you own.

Features

  • USB-MIDI controller works with virtually all audio software
  • Eight backlit, velocity-sensitive drum pads can send note or program changes
  • Eight Q-Link knobs for controlling virtually any parameters in software
  • Plug-and-play USB connection for Mac and PC requires no driver installation

Make music in any setting when you buy the LPD8.

    Comments about Akai Professional LPD8 Laptop Pad Controller:

    I have had the lpd for a few months it works great but the instruction manule is crap! It doesn't tell you anything.. I am new to the midi world and I dont understand anthing about cc notes and numbers or how any of that works. The manule should help I thought but it doesn't. I am useing it with native instruments kore player with reactor sparks sound pack it works but I feel that it should be able to do more and I know it can I just have no clue of how to do it. I have looked online for help from akai but there is none, no help for me !!!!!! I would guess if you know how to use midi thatn this is great for you. if you are new try to learn as much as you can first so you have a clue cause the manule won't help.. after learning a few things I can put the notes I want where I want them but it is a hassle. I wish they had a octive up down feature.. otherwise the product has held up to my abuse gotten wet ect. still works great. I think it would work better with ableton ??????
