Summer Namm 2006, Continued


Akai MPD24 USB/MIDI Pad Controller



A dramatic improvement over the MPD16.  I love their slogan "At Akai, we set the standard fro drum pad controllers, while others just give you the finger".  Hey they said that.  Of course they are talking about M-audio's Trigger Finger.  Ok let's let them say more here:

Akai Professional's MPD24 is the velocity sensitive pad controller for musicians and DJs working with sampled sounds. The MPD24 features 16 MPC-style velocity and pressure sensitive pads plus transport controls for interfacing with DAW/sequencing applications. With Akai?s MPC 16 Levels and Full Level features for ultimate pad control, four selectable pad banks totaling 64 pads, six assignable faders and eight assignable, 360 degree knobs for transmitting MIDI Control Change data, the MPD24 provides unprecedented creative freedom for manipulating sampled material.

US122L and US-144

With these small interfaces, replacing the US122, Tascam is embracing the USB 2.0 standard. Hooray! That means the days of old clunky USB 1.1 interfaces may finally begin to wane and I can change my soundcard page.  The 144 has s/pdif i/o and the 122L does not.  The 144 also gives you a separate headphone volume control.  Both units have 2 XLR mic preamps with phantom power and 2 line inputs, MIDI, and can record at 24/96.  Both are bus powered and designed for PC or Mac, including laptops.  Lots of promise here.
