Hi All - Before I purchase it, can someone tell me if the Akai MPD218 works with Serato?

Thanks.

I have the MPD226 and it works fine

Serato Sample doesn't have any native hardware mappings just yet but if the controller is MIDI mappable you should be able to control Serato Sample using the MPD in your DAW :)

You made my heart race there for a second, i really hope you guys can implement a start and finish sample knob like the mpc and maschine, i would pay an extra 50 bucks for that :)

I was hoping not to have to run another program during my set to play samples from the Akai. ugh

Hi Scott - Do you know if/when Serato DJ will be able to natively map the Akai MPD218 ?

+1 on Akai MPD218...
Also, would be so neat to set Start/end slices with infinite knobs :) +1000

Can I run the mod218 in ableton and link to serato while using my ns7IIi? I’ve tried and haven’t been able to yet.

I assume you mean Serato Sample, not Serato DJ.

There are no native hardware mappings for Serato Sample just yet. It's something we've wanted to do, but no news to when this will be available sorry!

There is no rush on this, do other stuff like velo mapping first! I use Serato Sample with MPD218, and it works great. Simple midi note to pad mapping. Anyone who buys a 218 should know how to set the notes correctly to trigger the sample right.
