I am more than satisfied with this product. I would recommend this product over the mpd 32 anyday why pay close to 300 dollars when you can pay only 169.99 or even lower for this product that does the exact same thing plus the korg padkontrol has great pads right out the box unlike the akai mpc and mpd series and it has backlit pads which is a bonus for me. The only thing that akai mpd series has over the korg padkontrol is that they have assignable Faders and more than 2 assignable knobs and transport buttons which i really don't mind i can use my mouse but if you don't like using your mouse i would consider investing in the korg nanokontrol 2 which has up eight faders, eight assignable encoders, 24 assignable buttons, and dedicated transport controls, to give you unparalleled control over your music software and only it cost 59.99 or lower if you get it from this website.
