Product Description

The feature packed Akai MPD218 has been designed for producers, programmers, musicians and DJ's and is a MIDI-overUSB pad controller. The MPD218 is the perfect bridge between your creativity and your computer based home or professional studio. It features 16 thick fat backlit MPC pads.

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.

Experience the Difference
First, we stepped up our 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.

These MPDs are the perfect bridge between your creativity and your computer-based studio.

Reason Lite
Combining plug-and-play support for Akai Professional MIDI controllers, a comprehensive selection of studio grade production and mixing tools, 9 premium instruments, 11 effect processors, Softube powered guitar & bass amplifiers, an immense genre-spanning 2+GB sample library and expansion options via VST and Rack Extension Plugins, Reason Lite provides the ultimate platform for immersive production, hard-wired for immediate creative exploration with Akai Professional's industry-standard controller line-up.

Here we have the Akai MPD218  in new and B-Stock. The B-Stock versions would have been on display at a training evening or trade exhibition only and will come boxed 'as new' with all accessories and a 1-year warranty.
