The world's most influential manufacturer of music production gear, Akai Professional develops creative technologies to empower music makers with tools that are unmatched in expressive capability. Akai Professional is best known for creating the legendary MPC, an instrument that has inspired generations of producers and performers and spawned entirely new genres of music.
The Akai MPD232 Pad Controller with Faders is part of the most capable and user-friendly line of pad controllers.
