    AKAI MPD232 MIDI Pad Controller

    Notify me when this product is available:

    The MPD232 is the new flagship MPD MIDI pad controllers from AKAI. The flexibility you have with your set-up and expression is amazing. Excellent build quality, the MPD232 has extra rotary encoders and sliders when compared with the MPD218 and 226. Use the onboard step-sequencer to get creative! All pads are velocity sensitive. The MPD232 offers amazing value, as it comes bundled with a host of free software including Ableton Live Lite. With 16 drum pads, 8 sliders, 8 rotary encoders and a 32-step sequencer the AKAI MPD232 makes electronic music creation an enjoyable, intuitive process.


        OK, it was a tall order. We admit it. People loved the original MPDs so much that we didn’t want to mess with success.

        But we did.

        The MPD2 Series is a product of over six years of detailed customer research and user feedback. We asked what you wanted and we listened closely. We took what you told us and turned it into the most capable and user-friendly line of pad controllers Akai Professional has developed to date.

        The MPD232 is a MIDI-over-USB pad controller perfect for producers, programmers, musicians and DJs alike. Its intuitive blend of MPC controls and technologies mesh with easy USB connectivity to bring the feel of classic beat making into the world of computer music production.

        Experience the Difference
        First, we stepped up our game by adding new, ultra sensitive Thick Fat MPC pads, creating an amazingly responsive user experience. The MPD232 has an expanded control set featuring eight knobs, eight faders, eight buttons arranged in three banks for 72 total controls. This will enable you to maximize your sound and give you increased control over effects.

        The MPD232 also boasts an all-new 64-channel, 32-step performance sequencer, which the MPD32 did not have. MIDI information is sent over its plug-and-play USB interface for use on Mac or PC, eliminating the need to install any drivers.

        Along with the improved functionality we’ve added iOS compatibility using the Camera Connection Kit (sold separately) and included over $400 of free software. Titles include: Akai Pro MPC Essentials, Big Bang Drums and Big Bang Cinema from Sonivox, Ableton Live Lite, and Software Preset Editor.

        The aforementioned Software Preset Editor allows you to enjoy intuitive control editing right from the front panel of the MPD232.

        Our MPD2 Series marks an important evolution of the pad controller. Many years of research and customer feedback has led directly to some of the most capable pad controllers we’ve ever developed. These MPDs are the perfect bridge between your creativity and your computer-based studio.
