Useful Budget Midi Controller

02.03.2017
I bought this with the purpose of being able to write drum sequences for online music as a broke teenager, and found this to be adequate for the purpose.

The pads are nice and sturdy. They are sensitive enough to make accurate finger drumming work, but I did miss the lack of the extra pads found on larger pad layouts found elsewhere.

I was a bit confused as to how Akai thought it feasible to mount such small rotary knobs on the LPD 8 however. I have 'piano fingers' so am fairly clumsy with small faders and knobs in general but even for a normal user they are ridiculously stubby and not pleasant to use, especially if you want to make smooth increments on things like filters and reverb, things that I feel many users would desire when producing on the fly.

I honestly didn't explore too much of the filters other than using multiple banks, so I can't comment too much on the built in features like prog change, so can't comment too much there.

Note: as this is fully programmable, it functions nicely as a cheap addition to a DJ setup, at least for Traktor. :)

Used for live performance, not a problem!

David32, 04.03.2015
The LPD8 is a brilliant piece of equipment for those who want an inexpensive way to add a controller to their dj setup or production with whatever mappings they want, whether its trigger, like skip 16 beats forward or for those that want to try entering in automation using the 8 rotary controllers.

The other positive is that you can have more than 8 mappings, on the left hand side of the controller there are 4 buttons, clicking on PROGRAM will let you select a different bank of mappings, e.g: Clicking PROGRAM and selecting PAD1 will give you the first 8 mappings, clicking on PAD2 will give you additional mappings and so on, to a total of 32 mappings.
This obviously has be configured using the software that comes with the controller, but you do have that option to assign CC control to any button or rotary encoder on the device.

The pads aren't very sensitive, so if you do want to capture the velocity of each hit accurately, unfortunately this isnt the device that is going to do that. Tho it will enter in the notes without a problem with a velocity range from about 90 to 127.

Again for the price this device cant be faulted and is great for beginners or for people looking to add a controller for a small price.

The device worked flawlessly using cubase and ableton as well traktor.
