So... this is a update on my purchase. Now I have had time to play around with this a bit more I can now fully say with out any doubts this is a brilliant piece of equipment. I have been using this to mix , run samples and use it as a drum kit too in addition to this I bought the akai 25 key midi keyboard too and found that the software can be used on the akai 26 and mpd218 . I would love to try out more of there line as I was amazed at the quality and software you get with each item you buy. Anyone wishing to get a jumpstart to there music then look no further than here.
Again I would love to test and own other midi devices that akai produce
every single pad on my MPD226 double hits, when i record a sequence I need to quantize and clean up the MIDI every single time because of the double hits. It's extremely annoying and as a result I don't use the device, it's in my cupboard collecting dust.
1 Star rating because this is a common fault with many of these device, AKAI need to take responsibility and either stop selling this product or put the price up a bit and use better components.... even have a better Quality Control process.
