i got an mpd24 and mpk25
i haven't even touched my mpd since i got my mpk tbh - really no point since i got 9 pads and a keyboard (which i love having)
watch some youtube videos of people messing with both -
the pads are a little stiff on the mpk like everybody says but it doesn't bother me much, it might bother you depending on your recording methods but i dunno

all in all i think having a keyboard to chop up samples with, play bass lines and notes on as well as the arpeggiator function really outweighs having 4 extra pads that feel softer

Just got the AKAI LPK 25 and I must say this is the sexiest thing I ve ever seen in my life lol. Is just about the size of a ruler, and the keys are smooth ass hell. I once had the MPK 49 and the MPK 25, and I eventually came to the conclusion that they were worth too much money for what I was using them for, so I sold them both. All I need is keys to triger my samples, synths and different pitches of the samples, as well as browsing through different pitches of my drum sounds ie. Hi hats and snares.
