Eric McGregor shows us around the new MPK25, a 25-key (no surprise) MIDI controller following in the footsteps of the MPK 49, but smaller, or more precisely, shorter.

He did say two banks of knobs (making 24); and later said 48 pads based on the same logic.

But yeah, I had a double take when he said it.

Why cant Akai get the knob/drum pad layout correct? R they retarded or something?!? Pads on the right and Knobs on the left! Who wants to spastically tap out beats with their weak left hand while playing a run with their right? Or tweak a knob with their right hand while riffing out with the left?

Sign a petition to get Akai to make an AU plugin to bridge the gap between Logic and their MPK/MPD series of controllers.

Let them Know we want Mixer control ! http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/mpk4logic/
