Not very user friendly, not for a novice programmer.

Summary: I spent 2 days reading and working with this unit only to send it back. Sonar 8 and the MPK49 should be easy to set up as they are supposed to 'support' each other but they don't. You need to map this yourself and even then it isn't able to realize it's full potential because Sonar doesn't play well...
Summary: First of all, the pads DO suck. MPC's are known for their pads so you'd think Akai would at least be able to put the same type of pad/contact design on their MPK line. Instead they put a bunch of pads with no play that feel like buttons and make the keyboard housing vibrate when you pound them.
Summary: Now when I think of Akai, obviously quality and music productions come to mind. Unfortunately, this does not live up to the name. The biggest failing in this product is the drum pads. YES, THE DRUM PADS! No you might be thinking, 'what could be wrong with legendary Akai drum pads?
Summary: Logic gebruikers opgelet!
Akai heeft nog steeds géén presets voor Logic en ik heb ondervonden dat hij slecht communiceert met Logic. Er is een workaround en gelukkig heeft Logic een makkelijke functie om controls te mappen, maar als je dit niet ziet zitten dan raad ik je de MPK sterk af.
