Plays back samples - pretty versatile, portable

17.05.2016
I use this for live playback of mainly drum samples and loops.

The eight pads and multiple banks provide enough flexibilty for my purposes at present and the 32MB limit across a bank hasn't proved a problem despite having a whole song-length drum track loaded plus several loops.

One gripe is that you can't deactivate velocity sensitivity yet the pads have to be hit pretty hard to reach maximum or pretty loud playback. Funnily enough when I'm playing back a loop that forms the main rythm track I have absolutely no need to be able to play it back at different velocities (who really does?) so I have to rely on my synth player to whack it suitably hard to ensure we don't have an ultra quiet drum backing no one can hear.

I also have the akai sample pad (which has pads to be hit with sticks) and that does allow you to deactivate velocity sensitivity but doesn't let you loop samples. Grrr.

Gripe over - the MPX8 is a decent piece of kit - there's nothing we could replace it with for a similar price and so far we've managed with it well live.

AKAI MPX8

Ville F., 20.09.2013
AKAI MPX8 is a newest addition in the AKAI sampler family. It is cheap and easy-to-move sampler. It doesn't contain very big sample library itself but you can insert and SD-Memory Card with new sounds. You can Download Sample Library from AKAI's website to get more sounds for your Memory Card.

The Biggest problem with this device was that it didn't support Stereo samples, but with the new Firmware update that problem is gone! .

The pads are touch sensitive and the quality is great. If you want a cheap sampler this just might be the right choice for you!

Only real problem I'm having with this product is that it is too light. I would have liked it more if it would have been more sturdy.
