Akai have announced that the MPD32 pad controller is available for purchase.
MPD32 is Akai Professional's flagship pad controller for musicians and DJs. Using a USB cable to connect to a Mac or PC, MPD32 is perfect for hardware control of popular music programs such as Reason, Ableton Live and GarageBand. MPD32 is the only pad controller to feature Akai Pro’s MPC Note Repeat with swing and gate time parameters.
Akai tell us that the MPD32 is also the only controller that can also work as a master clock for MIDI sequencers. With the Tap Tempo function, musicians can control tempo in real time during performances. Sixteen velocity and pressure-sensitive genuine MPC pads provide the industry's finest feel and expression.
Assignable MIDI controllers include eight assignable faders, eight assignable switches, and eight assignable 360-degree knobs. Three selectable control banks extend the number of available faders, buttons and knobs to 24 each for a grand total of 72 controllers. Four pad banks equate to 64 total pads.
MPD32 also features transport controls for interfacing with DAW/sequencing applications like Sonar, Cubase and Logic. To summarise, Akai say thatMPD32 is a fully programmable controller and multifunctional control surface that fits perfectly within any production or performance environment.
