Product Expert samplers

With the Akai MPX8 you play drums and samples live or in the studio. Because the 8 MPC pads are velocity sensitive, you play the samples with dynamics. You adjust the samples to taste with the rotary knob. This adjusts the note length, determines the pitch and adds your reverb. On the LCD screen you can see exactly which parameters you adjust. The sampler works as a standalone, but also as a MIDI controller in cooperation with your DAW. The MPC comes with an extensive sample library. You have access to 8 kits with 21 sounds, including 808 and 909 drums.
