The MPX16 overcomes the limitations of previous samplers that were unable to record samples, only play them back. With the internal stereo microphone get down quick ideas or sample your crowd and add it to your mix to make your audience a part of the show. External audio inputs mean you can use your audio interface outputs to pull samples from existing DAW sessions on the fly or record vocals and other acoustic sources directly to the MPX16. And the onboard effects processing can be used to shape any sample – imported or recorded.
The Akai MPX16 is a powerful standalone pad sampler / drum machine with 16 velocity sensitive backlit trigger pads, with on-board microphone and audio inputs for on the fly sampling during live performances.
