The Akai MPX16 is both portable and powerful making it reliable for live performance and adept for 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 (1/8-inch) MIDI inputs. Also incorporating a built in microphone and feature-packed MIDI pad controller, the MPX16 is equally capable of launching and capturing clips or adding trigger pads to a producer's studio.

The MPX16 is an advanced sample player with sixteen backlit velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads. With it, musicians, producers and performers can trigger sound samples stored on standard SD or SDHC cards. Insert the SD card, assign its contents to any of the MPX16?s pads, and go. At home in the studio as part of a producer's rig or on stage as a solution for triggering critical sounds, MPX16 is a compact sampling powerhouse.
While the hyper-responsive trigger pads and backlit display make tapping into your sample library a simple task, the integrated audio inputs empower you to add to it. Two 6.3mm jacks let you connect your studio gear or other sound sources to the MPX16 for sample capture. On board editing tools provide sample trimming and pad assignment for immediate synergy into a production or performance. Use the headphone jack to monitor your captures, or send the audio to a mixer, monitors or a recording interface using the 1/4 inch main outputs. A built-in mic provides immediate sample capture for those times when inspiration strikes whilst a dedicated Record Gain knob ensures you get the level just right.
The full-size USB port lets you drag and drop samples from your computer and even use the MPX16 as an SD card reader/writer. The USB connection also provides a pipeline for MIDI data, enabling sample triggering from your DAW or computer-based sequencer. A 5-pin MIDI input means SD samples may be triggered from any MIDI-enabled gear such as keyboards, pad controllers, synths and electronic drums. A 5-pin MIDI output lets the MPX16 function as a dynamic pad controller.
