Sixteen touch-sensitive pads let you play grooves exactly as you feel them.

The Akai MPD16 is a dedicated pad controller with MIDI and USB outputs you can use with any sampler, sound module, sequencer, or software to record and play drum and percussion patterns. The 16 pads on the MPD16 allow you to play with expression and feel for a realistic, human performance. The pads are assignable with two banks for a total of 32 pads plus a performance slider for hi-hat and other sample switching. Each pad also has variable velocity range and support for MPC's famous Full Level and 16 Levels pad response modes. Full Level switches all pads to maximum output velocity (127). The 16 Levels feature allows you to generate note velocities in 16 steps with each of the 16 pads.
