Akai's new USB/MIDI pad controller

Unwilling to eat the dust kicked up by their ferocious competitors, Akai have come up with a DJ-friendly controller that looks cool enough to be a winner. The MPD24 USB/MIDI Pad Control Unit comes with 16 MPC-style velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads, transport controls for interfacing with DAW/sequencing applications, numerous assignable knobs and faders, and more.

Designed with DJs as well as drummers in mind, the controller apparently has an interface that's considerably superior to that of conventional MIDI keyboards used to trigger drum and other sampled sounds. More
