The Akai MPX16 is a super advanced sample player packed with on-board sound recording, using .WAV and SD cards for reliable performance both live and in the studio. Capture CD quality samples via an on board stereo microphone or dual 6.33mm inputs, and trigger them with the highly responsive MPC style pads!

As well as looking like something from a different planet the 16 velocity sensitive, illuminated pads are also really useful for letting you play back samples in real-time, a great addition to any performance setup! Plus if you here a sound that really takes your breath away the Akai MPX16 incorporates a built in stereo microphone meaning you can capture sounds on the go and build up your own unique sample bank!

Here is what Akai say about the Akai MPX16 SD Card Sample Pad Controller

The portable MPX16 plays and records .WAV samples using SD cards for powerful, reliable performance in live and studio situations. Like the popular MPX8, samples are triggered internally from the highly responsive MPC-style pads or an external MIDI device via USB-MIDI and 3.5mm (1/4-inch) MIDI inputs. Also a feature-packed MIDI pad controller, the MPX16 is equally capable of launching clips or adding trigger pads to a producer’s studio.
Samples are captured at CD-quality via dual 6.3mm (1/4-inch) inputs or the on-board stereo microphone and saved to an SD card. The user may assign audio clips to the pads and apply tuning, filters, envelopes and “choke” grouping for creative, dynamic performances. An LCD screen and illuminated trigger pads provide visual feedback during use, and the MPX16 may be powered from a USB port or the included power supply. Naturally, users may load existing sound files onto an SD card or use the MPX16 as an SD card reader for drag-and-drop convenience on a Mac or PC. A software tool for even easier sample management is included via download
