    Product Description

    The Akai Professional LPD8 is a small and lightweight pad controller that offers great value for money. This super-affordable and highly-portable pad controller is perfect for music production on-the-go.

    With its compact and lightweight design, the LPD8 can be thrown into a bag and easily taken on the road with you. This controller is USB-powered and doesn't require drivers so you can take it out and use straight away with your laptop, no time wasted on setup!

    While it may be small, there's plenty here to play with. The LPD8 features 8 backlit, velocity-sensitive MPC pads which can be used play notes and create beats, as well as send MIDI CCs and program changes. There are 8 Q-Link knobs for adding and tweaking effects and can be assigned to control almost any parameter. You also get four memory banks so you can save and recall settings for different programs. With these features, you can get a more natural, intuitive, and rhythmic workflow to help you unleash your creativity.
