An ultra-portable production pad and USB-MIDI controller.
The Akai LPD8 Laptop Pad Controller is a USB-MIDI controller for musicians, producers, DJs, and other
music creators. The controller measures less than 13" across and weighs less than a pound so it fits easily into your laptop
case, backpack, or messenger bag for extreme portability.
The LPD8 is based on Akai Professional's MPC line of iconic
music production stations. Producers who love the feel of the Akai MPC and want to work with the software on their computer
find that the LPD8 gives their laptop the controls they prefer to a mouse and keyboard.
The Akai LPD8 has 8 orange
light-up pads that are velocity-sensitive for programming rhythmic or melodic parts. The pads can also send program-change
information to software. Additionally, the LPD8 pad controller has 8 Q-Link knobs you assign to virtually any parameters in
the software for hands-on control.
The Akai Professional LPD8 Laptop Pad Controller is plug-and-play compatible with
Mac and PC computers requiring no software driver installation or wall power for operation. The LPD8 controller also has 4
memory banks for programming and recalling settings appropriate to the music software programs you own.
