NAMM 2012: Akai MPCDJ Controller

Ever wonder what would happen if the Akai MPC production unit were to be merged with a Digital DJ Controller? Well, wonder no more, as Akai and Numark has teamed up to bring you the all new MPCDJ which basically combines the 16 Famous MPC production pads with a mixing console and two Numark V7's attached to each side for an all-in-one DJ control solution. This type of product is very innovative and makes a lot of sense since DJ's often use programmable buttons for cue points, juggling, looping, sampling, drumming, and just about everything else under the sun. From the onset, this looks to be a Serato type of controller, but everyone knows that Serato's programs are usually set in stone with their usage, while Traktor allows users to program each and every MIDI button as one sees fit. Hopefully this controller will be made accessible to DJ's using all types of programs and those 16 authentic MPC pads will be fully programmable to suit any DJ's style. Not much more is known about this controller at the present time, but I'll be sure to update the post with more information as soon as it becomes available. Stay tuned!
