    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
    Akai have upped their game by adding new, ultra sensitive Thick Fat MPC pads, creating an amazingly responsive user experience. The MPD226 has an expanded control set featuring eight knobs, eight faders, eight buttons arranged in three banks for 72 total controls versus 12 on the MPD26. This will enable you to maximise your sound and give you increased control over effects. The MPD226 also features 30 presets with configurations for most popular DAWs and dedicated transport controls.

    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 Akai have 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 Preset Editor.

    The aforementioned Software Preset Editor allows you to enjoy intuitive control editing right from the front panel of the MPD232.
