      Akai Professional MPK Mini Laptop Production Keyboard (H68164)
Availability:  


Portable keyboard controller with extensive software control.

The Akai Pro MPK mini is an ultra-compact mini-keyboard with an impressive array of buttons, knobs and pads to provide hands-on performance and production control no matter your location. MPK mini strikes the perfect balance between portability and comprehensive software control by melding together the complete control offered in the popular Akai Pro MPK family with the grab-and-go convenience of the LPK25 and LPD8. With a 25-note keyboard, 8 backlit, MPC-style pads and 8 Q-Link knobs, the MPK mini is the ultimate portable controller to get your music moving.

The MPK mini keyboard is ideal for quickly entering notes and phrases into your computer. The velocity-sensitive keys allow you to accurately express dynamics, while accessing different pitch ranges is done instantly through dedicated Octave Up and Octave Down buttons. Create sparkling, staccato leads and driving bass-lines in a variety of time denominations and patterns with MPK mini's built-in arpeggiator. A Tap-Tempo button gives you the ability to quickly adjust the arpeggiator clock, which is essential if you're looking to stay in sync with a band. A Sustain button holds notes after releasing your hand from the keyboard allowing you the opportunity to easily pound pads and twist knobs, with no pedal required.

MPK mini's 8 backlit, velocity-sensitive pads are based on Akai Professional’s MPC line of iconic music production stations. Great for firing one-shot samples and sequencing drum patterns, you can use the pads to send note information, MIDI CCs, or even program changes. Pressing the Bank button will quickly toggle between 2 banks of pads giving you access to 16 pads in total. Additionally, the MPK mini has 8 assignable Q-Link knobs to control virtually any parameter in your software.

MPK mini works plug-and-play with Mac and PC and requires no software driver installation or wall power for operation. It has four memory banks for programming and recalling settings appropriate to your favorite software programs. The included software editor lets you quickly map MPK mini's controls as well.

  • Not 4 stars, 4 and a half! AMAZING!

    As reviewed by Sammy Schein on 3/10/2011

    Okay I want this review not to be 4 stars but 4 and a half but I am not able too so imagine its 4 and a half. This is an amazing device. Very, portable, amazing quality and very responsive. I use this with FL Studio on my laptop and it works like a charm. Honestly this is one of those things that u get what you pay for. You aren't getting screwed over but your not getting an amazing deal. This device is worth $100.

  • Only 100?!

    As reviewed by Harrison Knop on 3/2/2011

    This is super nice for any type of creation purposes. You could buy and LPD for 70 and then an LPK for 70. Or both in one for 100. Slick design, only a bit more than a day with it and love it already!

  • For the price you can't complaint.

    As reviewed by William Rivera on 11/20/2012

    This midi controller has anything that you nee for its purpose. It is light and ready to use anywhere and everywhere with no software to be installed. You plug it just as soon as it is outside the box and Poom! it is ready to use. I've seen people reviewing this item and complaining about the keys not being heavy. Again, you pay for what you get! And for the price of the MPK mini this is just amazing. The only improvement I could really see done is adding bigger knobs. Other than that The MPK is everything the market tells you it is. Small, portable and amazing.
