    Akai Professional MPX8 reviews

    MPX8 SD Sample Pad Controller is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good no frills sample player. I bought this sample player to help create some new musical ideas in real time. Its easy to use and has a few useful built in features. You must run the latest firmware patch right out of the box if you want to run stereo samples (v1.0). I really like the twin 1/4 outputs, they could have cheaped out with one single stereo jack but having two physical output jacks makes this unit really flexible when your loading dual-mono .WAV fales (left one sample, right a different sample). This allows you to load twice as many samples at the same time. There is a strict 30 MB memory limit on samples loaded into the unit's memory but you can use SD cards to store your sample banks/kits (up to 32 gb). The kit editor software looks completely thrown together at the last second. if you want to build sample sets or kits you will need to use the software. I could not figure out how to build or save my kits within the hardware itself... maybe I am missing something, but I could not get it to work. I hope the next firmware update will correct this. I can't comment on the MIDI capabilities because I am not familiar enough with MIDI protocols to make an assessment. Its a LOT of bang for the buck. Useful for popping off sound bytes or musical intros during live performances. Well suited for... -Live musical performance -Recording Studio -talk radio or news program -Game show -Theater
