The Akai LPD8 Wireless is a USB Bluetooth controller for musicians, producers, DJs and other music creators.

Its compact form allows it to easily fit into a laptop case, backpack, or messenger bag, and with its battery powered and wireless operation, the controller provides the freedom to create anywhere desired, especially when connected with an iOS device.

The unit's six user-interface buttons and eight assignable pots deliver a versatile range of performance and control options. The newly added Full Level button guarantees the pad responses are at an equal velocity when even volume is required. A Note Repeat button is suitable for creating build-ups before a drop, and the NR Config button controls and fine-tunes swing and time division parameters.

Features:

  • MIDI over Bluetooth to iOS, Mac OS X
  • USB MIDI, works with virtually any music software or DAW
  • Eight backlit velocity-sensitive drum pads to send note or program changes
  • Eight assignable knobs for controlling virtually any parameter
  • Four programmable memory banks
  • Editing software for Mac and Windows included
  • USB bus or battery powered (3 AA batteries, not included)
  • Plug-and-play USB connection for Mac and Windows, no driver required
