Add real MPC pads to your setup.

The MPD18 is the easiest way to add genuine MPC pads to your setup. This MIDI-over-USB pad controller for DJs, programmers, producers, and other musicians is built around the pads and controls from Akai Professional's industry-standard MPC series. The MPD18 is an expressive and intuitive instrument for the studio and stage.

The heart of the MPD18 is its bank of 16 velocity and pressure-sensitive MPC pads, an Akai Pro exclusive. You can access three different banks of sounds from the MPC pads for a total of 48 sounds at your fingertips. The MPD18 also borrows the MPC series' assignable Q-Link controllers, enabling you to control nearly any parameters in your software in real time. You get an assignable Q-Link fader for natural, hands-on control of your most-used parameters, and MPC Note Repeat enables you to quickly input patterns such as hi-hat parts or drum rolls. The MPD18 also has 16 configurable presets so you can program it for the way you work with different hardware and software.

The MPD18 sends MIDI information over its plug-and-play USB interface so you can use it with your Mac or PC without installing any drivers. The USB connection even powers the MPD18 so the included USB cable is all you need for portable production. The MPD18 can control nearly any MIDI software, as well as MIDI hardware, such as synths, sound modules, samplers, sequencers, drum machines, and more.

The MPD18 gives you the control feel of the MPC in a super-portable instrument with a compact footprint that's easy to fit in any setup.

This product is very hot. Thanks for all the hot extras. Delivery perfect. Ordered Monday came Thursday all the way to Elmira NY from Canada. Already doing hot beats and don't even know the half of it yet. So keep doing what y'all do. I will be getting that keyboard next.

I bought the APC40 after weeks of looking for the right vendor (and waiting for my money to be available.) ended up being perfect. Not only is it in Toronto, but the owner is extremely helpful. The free sample packs that come with most of the gear here is a great bonus as well. Lots of high quality samples. I will definitely buy here again (MPC 500 is probably next for me.)
