Bought it here for the lowest price I could find in a good quality. Grade B was deserved, as it was like new, as it should. Completely functional unit, no scrapes or marks. Using it to control VoiceMeter Banana and it is brilliant, completely plug and play behaviour (meaning no drivers, VMB detected it as soon as I connected it - VMB needs training to assign controls which is no great hassle).
i bought this for using as a midi controller for serato and have to say im very happy with it..works well easy to use, good price
I bought this Akai LPD8 product for 2 reasons, the first was to use for triggering samples/cue's and controlling volumes while Dj'ing. The second was for use in FL studio. Whats great about this controller is it combines a midi controller AND a drum pad into one unit. So you can map the assignable knobs to virtual faders etc in your chosen software. Each knob and velocity sensitive pad has 4 memory banks giving you even more options. The bundled mapping software is simple and easy to use. allowing you to change the midi channels with ease to stop any conflicts between controllers happening. Finally the build quality of this product is fantastic, especially when compared to other similar devices in this price range
