I will only replace this if I ever have the courage to buy me an electric drumset.
As ive said before, it is soooo much better than the NanoPad.
you use it to control sounds.
the 8 pads are lovely. the 8 knobs are lovely. they also feel goods.
Ease of Use
just plug that little sucker in and your good to go. wait I lie, I had to do some editing on the Akai Editor but it was no hassle at all.
I use it with Ableton Live and they work together as a great tag team.
I dont slam my equipment on the wall so I cant say much on what exactly the LPD8 can and cant survive
But I love the feel of the pads, I love the orange LED that it makes when you hit the pads. The knobs are nice and fat.
This product has waaaaaaaaaaay better quality build than the NanoPad (I owned it, pads went out on me)
there is no better drum controller for this price better than this. IT IS BETTER than the NanoPad.
I havent contacted Akai yet. no need.
The Wow Factor
the black pads, the LED, its rectangular size. It can travel safely anywhere with ya. It makes me feel good, inside.
I love that I can now program my drums hitting the pads, instead of keys. But you can groove anyway you want people.
I just make music.
all of that together in one blender.
