              I bought this over 2 years ago for my Reason 6 based recording studio. It is turned on for about 10 hours everyday and has always held it's connection with the software at all times. (so i would trust it on stage too) It's built to last and the pads feel great. The knobs, faders, and buttons are all very high quality and have the feel they are supposed to have as well. Very happy with mine. The more you get to know it the better it gets, find many tutorials.

                Great unit for the price and is bus powered. Check out mpcstuff.com for some cool upgrades to the unit. I added big fat pads along with thin risers under them for increased sensitivity and better feel. I also got some shiny new faders and knobs.

                      Hot Piece of Equipment

                      from NC, USA

                      Comments about Akai Professional MPD32 MIDI/USB Software Control Surface:

                      Very nice for more than just "Beats" any programming and control you need to take over a mix can be achieved with this unit. Higher price control surfaces by Mackie, Avid, etc... will cost almost 3 times as much as this unit and don't offer the legendary Pads. Akai is a staple in music and digital productions, making digital music and electronic genres and NOT owning this is just plain SILLY! Transport controls 30 preset/programable programs for the DAW hardware applications you name it. GET THE MPD32 today, you wont be dissapointed! Especially with all the support online for it. At first its a bit overwhelming, but I said the same thing about my newest hardware interface.
                      16 Velocity Pads over 4 Banks, 8 faders & Infinite Knobs (They turn without stopping, there is no limit!) over 3 banks and a bright display. Software makes programming for other software and even for use with hardware syntheis or any device supporting midi.
                      Been pounding on my Unit since 2010 when I purchased it, It is almost 2 years to the DAY I purchased my unit, I pound on it everyday, use it in the studio and stage and its still as good as the day I got it! Someone even dropped a lit cigarette on it and you can't tell! Still mad about that!
                      Yes, cheaper than an MPC if you already have DAWs and Synthesis programs.

                      I'm sort of new to the DJ scene, but this controller along with ableton live are a match made in heaven... I've had it for about 3 months now and I've been making alot of music with it and its been awesome. the pads are great, so are the sliders, and the knobs are really really good. the controller itself is nice and big and looks really cool.Stop thinking about it, just buy it now you'll be sooooo happy!!!!!!!!

                      MPC For Your PC

                      By B.iLL

                      from Da SLC

                      Comments about Akai Professional MPD32 MIDI/USB Software Control Surface:

                      After I upgraded to a laptop with Windows Vista, I was on the hunt for a new MIDI controller. I was using an Akai MPD16 but after several failed installs on my Vista laptop, I found out that Akai decided not to make a Vista driver for my antiquated hardware. At first, I was a bit angry that my equipment that I?ve been using for a long time with Windows XP no longer worked. But then the prospect of getting new gear calmed me down. All I really wanted was a pad controller with MPC style pads and a "note repeat" function. I researched several pad controllers: M-Audio Trigger Fingers, Akai MPD24, and Korg padKONTROL. I also gave Akai?s new MIDI keyboard, the MPK49, serious consideration since it has 12 MPC style pads. After much debate, and plenty of time spent watching demos of each product, I finally placed a pre-order for an Akai MPD32.It arrived a couple months later and it was plenty worth the wait and money. The first thing I noticed is that the MPD32 is large, much larger than my previous MPD. Its footprint is a bit bigger than my 15.4" laptop. The next thing I noticed is that it's built solid. All of the knobs, faders and pads feel great. These pads are the same pads that are used on the MPC2500. The only criticism I have for the pads would be with the sensors. Akai uses a round sensor under the pad so not all of pad surface is usable, unlike the Korg padKontrol which uses a square sensor for its pads. But this is not a deal breaker for me.The MPD32 comes with presets for many popular music production programs (e.g. Live, Reason, FL Studio, Cubase, etc.) Personally, I use Reason 4.0 and Live 7. The presets for Reason work perfectly. The 8 knobs and faders are easily assignable to manipulate filters and effects within Reason.For me, the MPD32 is perfect. If you?re in need of a MIDI controller with MPC pads for your DAW, look no further.
