I actually have my mpd24 set up like this:earsmack wrote:Something else that may or may not be an issue for you is that the Akai has the knobs on the right side of the pads. For my setup, they would get in the way since I have my pad on the left side of my work area. I prefer the PK because the pads are on the right side of the unit and are not obscured in any way. A small gripe but ergonomics can be important for some folks.
Honestly, it really depends on what kind of drumming you do. If you want to do really sensitive drum/perc then the korg is the way to go. But the mpd 24's pads are great as well and the whole ting is solid as a rock which i like alot. the korg is real "plastic-y" feeling and the rubber grips on the bottom of mine are uneven which really annoys me when drumming with it because you dont get that solid response you get on something heavier like an actual MPC or the MPD.
