Great gear
Urmuz, 17.09.2014
It depends on the features you want. I say its a very well done gear..it doesn t look cheap. It has cool features, and once you get the hang of it it will be peace of cake.
Still waiting for the firmware upgrade and Fileloader.

I am using this product fro a month or so and managed to see all the great features.
With every sample you can eve a lot of parameteres to change , if you want of course - volume, pan, reverb, midi note change, velocity, play mode [1 shot, hold, loop], filtes, envelope, track start and end..and other more.
It has the features to recod and use those sounds in your pads. It has seperate main outs as well as recording ports. Volume and REC gain.
The big disadvantage is that it take some time to load the samples from the SD card.So when you change from one kit to another and the samples are from the SD card it take up to 10-20 seconds to load - according to the samples ofcourse, but for the sounds that are internally its instant :)
Great finish and good materials.

nice controller!
Fraspro, 04.10.2019
i mostly use the Mpx 16 as a controller for Ableton Live and it works perfectly. It connects automatically to the software and it's perfect to trigger drum sounds, one shot samples and even sequences . Pads are big and responsive so it's fun and easy to play with them.
As a standalone sampler it's a bit tricky to get into samples editing and it could be a time consuming process, but once you get it done, to play with the mpx it's just as fun as it is to use it as a controller.
It comes with some average on board sounds, but you can add your own samples using an SD card. The dedicated software makes this operation very straight forward although sometimes it seems not to work properly. Some of the samples i loaded into it was missing, and i had to connect the mpx to the pc again and reload them, which takes some time and could be a bit frustrating. Beside that issue i personally never had problems using the mpx both as a controller and standalone sampler and i think it would be difficult to find something better in this price range.

Decent sampler for a low price.
Hatcho, 25.11.2017
+ Cheap
+ Overall sound quality is ok (not amazing)
+ Pretty hands on, not hard to get the workflow
- Factory samples included are pretty poor and/or boring
- The built-in reverb is atrocious

Once you've uploaded your own samples into the machine, this is a very decent 16 pad sampler for a nice price. Nothing more, nothing less.
