I bought M-Audios Trigger Finger over the Akia MPD16, and I ended up returning it after a week. The main reason was because I had problems programming the pads. I used the pads with live, but was only able to use the bottom 8 pads. I couldn’t get the thing to do what I wanted it to do, and the manual it came with didn’t help much either. The trigger finger came with software to program the pads called enigma, but in my opinion the software sucked. After a month without it, I’m beginning to miss it, and I am wondering if I should give it another chance, or try the Akia MPD16. Has any one had any experience with either controllers?
