Best Uses

  • Sampler Without A Laptop

Comments about Akai Professional MPX8SD Sample Player:

This was my first sampler. Was looking for something to incorporate samples into my live set (I play guitar in a rock band) without having to drag around my laptop. This works great for that. The controls are pretty easy to use (though I can't imagine myself altering the sample parameters during a set) and the interface is pretty straightforward. The software does the job it needs to do, could be better but ah well. I wish it had mute groups. The loading of samples from the SD card is slow, and you have to load every time you switch kits. You can not play any samples while it is loading either, so if you're looking to do more than 8 samples in a song this might not be for you. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it and the price was definitely right.

    Comments about Akai Professional MPX8SD Sample Player:

    Incredible sampler for what it does. I get upset when people write reviews saying it doesn't do this or that. For what this machine does, it is perfect. Load samples in and play them back. Very easy to use and good build quality. Akai makes good stuff.
