What can I do with the Akai LPD8?
Make musical masterpieces on the go with the Akai LPD8. Eight velocity-sensitive drum pads and eight knobs, compatible with all MIDI software on Mac OS X or Windows, give you a wealth of options. Intuitive controls make this controller feel more natural than a keyboard and mouse and are suitable for any musician.

Is it easy to carry around?
The Akai LPD8 is a very lightweight and portable MIDI controller that will fit easily into laptop and messenger bags, making sure it’s at hand when inspiration strikes. Plug and play through USB into your Mac OS X or Windows computer and use with virtually any MIDI compatible software such as Ableton. No additional power supply required.

Can I customise this MIDI controller?
The eight assignable drum pads can be used to make beats and melodies, while eight 270-degree knobs can be used to change virtually any parameter within the software, from tempo and pitch to bass control. If the 16 controls are not enough for you, the LPD8 provides four memory banks that you can quickly swap between to provide you many more possibilities.
