MPX16 Sample Recorder & Player

The portable MPX16 plays and records .WAV samples using SD cards for powerful, reliable performance in live and studio situations. Like the popular MPX8, samples are triggered internally from the highly responsive MPC-style pads or an external MIDI device via USB-MIDI and 3.5mm (1/4-inch) MIDI inputs. Also a feature-packed MIDI pad controller, the MPX16 is equally capable of launching clips or adding trigger pads to a producer’s studio.

Samples are captured at CD-quality via dual 6.3mm (1/4-inch) inputs or the on-board stereo microphone and saved to an SD card. The user may assign audio clips to the pads and apply tuning, filters, envelopes and “choke” grouping for creative, dynamic performances. An LCD screen and illuminated trigger pads provide visual feedback during use, and the MPX16 may be powered from a USB port or the included power supply. Naturally, users may load existing sound files onto an SD card or use the MPX16 as an SD card reader for drag-and-drop convenience on a Mac or PC. A software tool for even easier sample management is included via download.

  • Record and play back stereo .WAV samples using any SD card
  • 16 ultra-responsive, velocity sensitive backlit trigger pads
  • Sample via 6.3mm (1/4-inch) inputs or internal mic
  • MIDI In/Out easily integrates into your performance or studio setup
  • Filter, tune, envelope and choke grouping on each pad
  • CD quality sampling and playback
  • Includes computer software editor for efficient loading and editing of samples
  • Acts as an SD card reader for loading sounds over USB
  • Powered by USB or the included power supply; SD card included

I needed a sampler for my gigs and mixtapes. This seems to be a unit that allows me to load my own samples. It also has an independent power source, I didn't want usb exclusive power.

with the Akai mpx 16, can I run this unit out to a mixer while dj'ing a set? There is little info on this new product, so i am not certain. I do not use a laptop and would want to run directly out to a channel on the mixer (a pionner 4ch mixer for example) any input is greatly appreciated.

also - does this purchase include an sd card? what memory capacity if so?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, you could run this to a DJ mixer if you'd like. It does not come with an SD card.
