Akai LPD8

Anyone have one?

I have the keyboard, which I can confirm is far superior to the Korg Nano. I tossed my rickety Nano into the trash.

I'm thinking about ordering the LPD8 today. Seems like a cool little tool for the traveling beat-maker. Anyone with any experience they wanna share? I'm hoping it's of the same quality as the LPK25.

How is the feel?

$70. How can I lose, right?

Wow, cool site. Thanks for the share!

It's 4 a.m. and I cannot sleep. What better time to read up about DJ gear?

Lol, i'm right with you! I'm drooling over some of these d.i.y. controller mods. Fun stuff.

i am considering something like this for my main studio rig even though i use my mpc for pads, because i'd like some knobs that i can tweak in real time, some filters etc. something i feel my music is missing. i hate the knobs on the MCU units, and never use them.

how do you do stuff like full velocity on the akai?

any change there's an '8 levels' function, too?! or anything else?

i assume there's a software panel you need to leave open to control the akai...

seems to be a nice way to add a few pads without spending a load on the mpd series

the pads on this look nice - do they feel ok or are they 'alright for a portable device'?

cheers!

I don't know yet.

The reviews are very enthusiastic, but I have yet to try one.

At home, I have a NI Maschine, which I like the feel of, but I am just starting to learn how to use it.
