MPX8 packs proven Akai Professional technology into a compact, durable design that’s built to perform.
Load virtually any sample via standard SD or SDHC card and assign it to any of the MPX8’s eight back-lit velocity and pressure sensitive pads.
Use it in the studio.
Use it live on stage or on air.
The Akai MPX8 also has USB MIDI, plus standard MIDI inputs and outputs, enabling you to control everything from music software on your laptop to outboard MIDI gear.
The included USB cable and 1/8" to MIDI adaptor make it easy to connect.
With the included sample kit editor, you can easily arrange, tune, and add reverb to your samples on your Mac or PC before loading them onto the MPX8. The editor’s drag-and-drop functionality saves you time, instantly converting your samples to compatible .wav files
The MPX8 also comes with a free Loop Library download from Akai Pro, plus a large library of standard samples built in, which can be used for live performance in front of a crowd, on a radio show, or for in-studio production.
It’s compact, easy to load, and ready to go.
