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.

This unit, depite being small and cheap, is of great quality. It is sturdy and i don't think it would break easily. The pads are full-sized, bouncy and they feel nice. The knobs seem ok too. It is also MIDI-compilant, so it connects to any DAW, or virtually any other software without installing drivers (win7x64 here). I am into rock/trip hop and metal music, and it's the perfect tool to play/write/record drum patterns in ezdrummer, battery, etc. or to just cut and playback samples. This little beast, however, does not have any additional features (like a built-in arpegiator, etc.), but for the price it's a real good unit. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to have a "pocket" mpd-like unit to go with their laptop.
