The features are pretty bunk. I know alot of people praise this piece for being an Akai product, but truth be told...this isn't anything like the MPC's pads at all. It only has one bank, one slider, no note repeat button, and some horrible pads. It's pretty much useless until you connect it USB because the features are so limited when it comes to actually using it with just a midi cable. However, the features listed are actually what you get...so I guess it's not that bad of a product.

Price paid

$100 USD

It's actually quite painless to install--that's about the only plus side to this piece.

It's build like a toy. The USB connection had to be resoldered after about a months worth of use, the pads are real hard to hit unless you hit them dead center, and it just feels flimsy.

I sold mine right before Akai started reproducing the MPD16 again about...2-3 years ago? Nevertheless, I would not recomment this piece to ANYONE! No love.
