5.0 out of 5 stars Great, entry-level midi controller
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 June 2017
I purchased the LPD8 when I was first experimenting with making music and needed an external controller for adjusting sounds. This controller fit my needs ideally; it served the purpose well, it was small, and, most importantly for me at the time, it was affordable. At such a reasonable price, you really can't go wrong. I've now had countless hours of use with the LPD 8, and it still works like new.

The controller arrived on time and it came with useful instructions for getting it connected up to my computer and audio software properly. I had it up and running in about 20 minutes.

As far as functionality goes, the LPD8 allows you to link up any of the knobs audio parameters, use the buttons as launch pads, and set up a whole load of other ways to control your music productions.

At some point, it will be time for me to invest in a more expensive controller. But for the purposes of getting started with audio production and learning some basics, this is a perfect product.

I have recommended this to numerous friends before me, and I will continue to in the future.

I hope you found this review helpful. If you have any comments, feel free to get in touch.
