Akai Mpd16 Midi/USB Mpc-Style Drum Pad Unit System Manual – Questions (with Pictures) – Fixya

Modeled after the industry-standard MPC series, the MPD32 delivers the most expressive software beat control available. You can also change the value the slider sends Pitch bend, CCs are supported which makes it easy to use the slider to sweep aoai, volume, pan, effects on your destination device. I have owned this for a while for trying to do really good acoustic drum emulation for my band but once I saw RJD2 mahual ripping on his MPC production thingy, I fell back in love with this thing.

There is a dedicated button for “full level”.

Call a gear expert now! No application to mail or fax, no bills to pay. I barely ever use 16 levels or full level, which basically simplify the velocity of the midi signals it produces. It is really simple to use and the software that comes with it is perfect.

Possibly, you could route this in your sequencer. Its light and only takes up about a square foot of studio real estate, but you do need manuwl close to you, obviously. But in the balance, the MPD16 makes me smile. The active pad note number is the last pad played just before the Level key was pressed.


Let me start off by saying I have never owned an MPC No sounds actually come with it Feature: No hidden npd16 or hassles on returns. Sorry, this product is no longer available on zZounds We recommend this alternative: You can play it on a table, or if you are out of space, tuck it away and bring it out when you need it, and play it on your lap.

It isn’t mpx16 attractive and it is really simple.

This set the velocity of every pad tono matter how soft or hard you hit the pad. Finally, there is the “active” button which turns the slider on and off.

Just wish it would stay still more.

Its cool because you don’t have to use up a MIDI port on your existing interface. I cannot seem to find a midi implementation chart anywhere.

I can’t recommend them enough. Need it now but short of cash? We’ll refund you the difference for 45 days, so you’ll never regret buying from zZounds.

Our gear experts manuall help! Manusl, with it grooving all over the table when I play it, I think it could suffer some falls and such but I was very surprised with its construction when I got it. Fast, reliable delivery We have warehouses on both coasts, so most shipments arrive in 3 days or less. Mankal a better price after buying from us? I’m glad I got this one although I wish I had had the extra money to splurge and get the padKontrol.


This takes the last pad you hit and assigns it to all 16 pads with each having a different velocity level from soft to hard. In a sequencer setup, there are two ways that the MPD16 can be connected.

It is difficult on a smooth surface to really rock out with this thing and have it stay in one place. Your mp16 does not support inline frames or is currently configured not to display inline frames.

This includes heavy and oversized items. The functionality of the MPD16 is designed with simplicity in mind. Why fight traffic and pushy salesmen when we’ll bring your gear straight to your home, free of charge? Very easy to use with the right software Quality: Besides that, all the features add to its ease of use and the manusl allows you to easily choose what notes each pad controls as well as pad sensitivities for each pad.

The midi signal is a midi signal so I don’t think there is much to be desired their. I found it to be just what I needed to really expand my rhythmic abilities. As you can see by the pic below, this utility allows you to map the pads to any MIDI note you desire, assign the controller that the data slider will send, and lets you set the MIDI out channel.

However, for those who hate USB there is a MIDI output and all of the above functions are possible with the exception of setting pad sensitivity really not a big deal and saving templates.
