Akai has announced the MPX16 Sample Launcher + Recorder that is in most ways twice the MPX8.

This portable sampler uses the same SD-card storage as the MPX8, however you can now use an internal mic or external 1/4″ inputs to sample your own sounds on the 16 pads. The for Akai unconventional layout of the 16 pads is setting this apart from their signature MPC style, although the MPX16 is going towards MPC territory only lacking a sequencer.

The MPX16 will also be released this Summer, for a price tag of $200.
