We were looking to purchase an electronic drum kit for our son. We visited PMT back in September to have a look at the range of items they had. While there an assistant came to offer help and advice on the different sets that were available. My son was also allowed to try them out too. After choosing one he liked we went away to research as it was intended for a Christmas present. On looking the item up it showed that for the same money you could get extra items. We then returned and asked if they would price match as we believe in trying to support the local business, but ultimately things do come down to price and value. To our delight they were happy to price match, and as a result we even upgraded. The service from viewing to purchasing was really good, as these musical instruments are not cheap and you need good honest advice when purchasing. Would totally recommend this company.

Overview

Building on the success of the original MPD series, Akai's new MPD226 has morphed into the ultimate MPC-style USB controller for beatmaking, production and software automation.

4x4 Pad performance controller with MIDI-assignable parameter control over any DAW!

At the core of the MPD226 lies 16 of the legendary MPC-style drum pads, now made more responsive and fatter than ever. RGB backlights give you realtime feedback, even in the darkest club or studio environment. With the Bank Select switches, you can instantly expand your pad control surface across 4 banks for 64 triggers at your disposal. 3 banks of assignable faders and rotary controls open up your synths and software parameters for easy editing on the fly. Classic MPC functionality will appear to the vintage hip-hop heads, with Note Repeat, Swing, 16 / Full Level and Tap Tempo functions to add a new dynamic to your grooves.
