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.

5 stars as soon as a firmwareupdate fixes all quirks ....

11.09.2014
I previously use the mpx8 that offered for the low price a lot.
I missed the deactivation of the pad-dynamics and a listener range of the tuning (it offered only +/- 4 halftones).

See there, now comes the mpx16, which includes besides many powerful features among other things also og. Dynamics can be disabled, tuning now
Of +/- 12 possible (optional fine) and 16 pads are also not wrong (do not all have to be occupied, in order to save loading time).
The charging time of SD card is also improved.

But unfortunately the device with current firmware still drastic errors.
In addition to the problem of the "loop-choke" mentioned by the pre-post, there are further bugs.

It even succeeded in saving a recorded sample, the SD card contents in garbage.
What happened is that the mpx crashed during the storage test, rebooted and thereby the KIT folder destroyed and n heap kaputter system files generated, which could only be deleted by formatting. Little funny ...

I still hope for quick answer and update from Akai, since I used the mpx8 live and now wanted to replace the mpx16, but the latter is still buggy and therefore risky.

In the worst case, I have to return the mpx16 and consider a second mpx8.

But hope dies last.

Otherwise, everything is on the device, which already functions smoothly a quite enrichment after the mpx8. And for that price.


Let's see.....

EDIT 31.10.14:
I go down to 1 star for the time being, since nothing has been done, regarding firmware update, obendrein there is no AKAI information about when to expect.
Last but not least, the file loader was simply replaced by a simple conversion program.
Needless to say, since it's all about Audacity.

But it is not the same as the MPX8, there will be no software to create KITS on the computer, thus avoiding overvaluation of the Value Dial and saving time.
(And suddenly it was said that it was never planned otherwise.)
Even the manual has been reworked so that the former editor is no longer mentioned there.
(For this, one would like to compare the manual here with Thomann still linked v1.1 with the current version;))
This is equivalent to a customer deception by Akai, because the loader has been co-used and usable.

I'm going to keep it, the device could be a bomb, but as mentioned countless drastic bugs, which make a live application impossible.
I guess you should not list external links in reviews (I did this in the first version of this review, but it disappeared).
Nevertheless, would like to direct mpx16 interested in the Akai community forum simply to read there all the bugs, the device still has to be warned ...

So, Akai, there is a lot to be done, then there is also the 5.
