Product Expert MIDI controllers

Are you looking for a MIDI controller with which you can edit and play drums and samples? Then the Akai MPD226 is for you. On the screen you see which parameters you adjust from a sample. This keeps you overview during production. The MIDI controller is also ideal for the traveling producer or live DJ. Because the pads are illuminated you also work in a dark environment on the MPD226. The 16 drum pads are velocity sensitive. This makes the controller stand out from soft touches. You link the 4 faders and knobs to effects or other parameters within your DAW.
