MPD2 Series is a product of over six years of detailed customer
research and user feedback. We asked what you wanted and we listened
closely. We took what you told us and turned it into the most capable
and user-friendly line of pad controllers Akai Professional has
developed to date.
The MPD232 is a MIDI-over-USB pad controller perfect for producers,
programmers, musicians and DJs alike. Its intuitive blend of MPC
controls and technologies mesh with easy USB connectivity to bring the
feel of classic beat making into the world of computer music production.
Experience the Difference
First, we stepped up our game by adding new, ultra sensitive Thick Fat
MPC pads, creating an amazingly responsive user experience. The MPD232
has an expanded control set featuring eight knobs, eight faders, eight
buttons arranged in three banks for 72 total controls. This will enable
you to maximize your sound and give you increased control over effects.
The MPD232 also boasts an all-new 64-channel, 32-step performance
sequencer, which the MPD32 did not have. MIDI information is sent over
its plug-and-play USB interface for use on Mac or PC, eliminating the
need to install any drivers.
Along with the improved functionality we’ve added iOS compatibility
using the Camera Connection Kit (sold separately) and included over $400
of free software. Titles include: Akai Pro MPC Essentials, Big Bang
Drums and Big Bang Cinema from Sonivox, Ableton Live Lite, and Software
The aforementioned Software Preset Editor allows you to enjoy intuitive
control editing right from the front panel of the MPD232.
Our MPD2 Series marks an important evolution of the pad controller.
Many years of research and customer feedback has led directly to some of
the most capable pad controllers we’ve ever developed. These MPDs are
the perfect bridge between your creativity and your computer-based
