The MPX16 from Akai Professional is a compact and portable sample player with onboard sound recording. The controller plays and records WAV samples using SD cards for reliable performance in live and studio situations, and samples can be triggered internally from the responsive MPC-style pads, or an external MIDI device via USB-MIDI or 1/8" (3.5 mm) MIDI inputs. 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 1/4" (6.3 mm) inputs or the onboard stereo microphone and saved to the SD card. The user may assign audio clips to the pads and apply tuning, filters, envelopes and "choke" grouping for creative performances. An LCD screen and illuminated trigger pads provide visual feedback during use, and the unit can be powered from a USB port or the included power supply.

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 computer. Sample management software is included and available via download.
