If you have arrived at this page, it is because you own an AKAI MPD, MPK, Mini or LPD8 musical keyboard/controller and are looking to get better drum pad response than the stock unit. Don't give up on it yet. You have a great instrument... I created a solution that will allow you to enhance the pads so that they will be more sensitive, expressive, and musically intuitive.  

This is a simple solution. These kits consist of inserts that fit between your existing pad/sensor configuration and bring your pads to life. Most installs generally take less than 20 minutes.

The pad sets shown in the pictures on this page are not included in the kit - they are solely intended to give a general idea of where the inserts will be placed in your pad assembly. These kits will not replace any parts of your unit.

Inserts will not harm sensors, requires no modification of existing components, are non destructive (will remain in place without tape, glue, or adhesive), and are easily removable.

These kits are not compatible with the second generation MPK's (MPK 225/249).
