Akai have officially lifted the lid on their new MPD MIDI controller series.

The new launch is a culmination of six years-worth of product development, customer research and feedback – Resulting in Akai's most user-friendly line of pad controllers to date.

The new range features three new models; the MPD218, MPD226 and MPD232 respectively.

-The MPD218 has red light-up MPC pads and a greatly expanded control set of 6 knobs in 3 banks vs. one control on the previous MPD18 model.

-The MPD226 has an expanded control set of 4 knobs, 4 faders, 4 buttons in 3 banks for 36 total controls vs. 12 controls on the MPD26.

Each controller features ultra-sensitive chunky MPC pads for great response. They also have an expanded control set to maximize the sounds and effects available to the user, iOS compatibility using the Camera Connection Kit and over $400 of free software (Big Bang Drums and Big Bang Cinema from Sonivox, Ableton Live Lite, and Software Preset Editor).
