OT : MPC pads manufacturing


I’m wondering if anyone has a clue about how MPC pads are manufactured? (see pic below)

Are they molded, or laser cut?


pretty sure moulded. laser cutting can’t do levels like that

Molded. I’ve heard that personally from mpcstuff. (when I was contacting them about a poorly molded pad set)

Well, that’s at least true for the new style of pad.
The original MPC1000 pads, Akai hand-formed them out of poop.
