Excellent Condition

Lightly used MPD26 by Akai. MPC TechnologiesWhile the MPC pads and Q-Links might be the heart of the MPD26, its brain is transplanted directly from the MPC. That’s because the MPD26 is not just a control surface; it contains some of the key MPC technologies that have made the MPC the de facto standard it is. MPC Note Repeat is a capability that enables the MPD (or MPC) to automatically play a rhythm pattern, such as 16th notes on a hi-hat, for accuracy and speed of entry. MPC Swing is sometimes referred to as “the heart and soul of hip hop” because it turns perfectly aligned sequences into human-feeling time alignments. You can specify exactly the degree and timing of swing you want to apply for the perfect feel. The MPD26 also has MPC Full Level and MPC 16-Level on its pads.USB Plug and PlayThe MPD26 sends MIDI information over its plug-and-play USB interface so you can use it with your Mac or PC without installing any drivers. The USB connection even powers the MPD26 so the included USB cable is all you need. The MPD26 also has traditional DIN MIDI input and output jacks so you can use it with MIDI hardware such as synths and other sound modules. The MPD26 comes with Ableton Live Lite and Editor Librarian software so you can start creating right out of the box.MPD26 SpecsPads: 16 Pressure and Velocity SensitivePad banks: 4Q-Link Faders: 6–MIDI Control Change DataQ-Link Knobs: 6, 360-Degree PotsLCD: Blue, BacklitTransport Controls: Rew, FF, Stop, Play, Rec–MMC / MIDI Machine Control or MIDII/O: USB, MIDI In, MIDI OutPower: USB Bus Powered or MP6-1 AC Adapter for DIN MIDI, Sold SeparatelyWhat’s in the BoxMPD26 Controller, USB Cable, Software CD, Quick Start Guide
