    Cool Aaron
    can you launch also the sequences?

      Can anyone provide some expanded details on using the Akai MPD218 with the blackbox?

      How well does note repeat work?
      Can the knobs be usefully mapped?
      Velocity work well?

      Looking to get some MPC tactile feel along with the bb.

        Click image for larger version  Name:	A82BD42D-5642-4F60-9884-63604E31C80E.jpeg Views:	0 Size:	1.28 MB ID:	9075After doing a lot of research on which midi controller was the best for my BB, I chose the iRig pads because it’s the only one that I have found with the ability to edit pads and various functions also directly from the controller itself and to work in mobility or in a dawless setup is what I need, no other controller in this price range has this feature. The sensitivity of the pads works quite well for me and is adjustable through editor anyway. I love the way to save 16 different scenes with various note settings, cc, and midi channels for each individual pad, in this way I was able to create scenes to control the pads, the sequencer and various layouts of notes with scales and chords to be played through different midi channels on the BB. I am very happy about it.

          Thanks for the input. I don’t need config options, just nice pads close to the MPC feel and note repeat. Simple needs for me. The iRig doesn’t seem to have note repeat, unless it has to be set up with the app?

          I might just add an MPC Live to the setup and forget the $100 plus on a controller.

            Right, the iRig has no repeat note unfortunately. But I also have an akai mpkmini, the feel with the pads is quite similar to the iRig, perhaps slightly better even if they are divided into two banks of 8 pads. it has a useful arpeggiator and the note repeat. Knobs and pads work well with the BB, they are completely mappable and saved on 4 banks through the PC editor.

              Since I have the SP-404 and Blackbox, I’m wondering if the Akai MPD226 might be the best way to go. Anyone use this with the Blackbox and have good luck maximizing it?

                I have an eye on the MPD226 to, but it is very big, compared to the blackbox.

              Looking at this one, too. The note repeat is interesting, since the BB doesn't offer it internally (FR). Otherwise the Launchkey Mini Mk3 would be a no-brainer.

                Do you have any follow up on the Novation Launch key with the BB to report back?
                Functioning and nonfunctioning features?
