Overview

This limited edition MPK mini comes in an all-white finish with inverted color keys that will instantly grab your attention and ignite your creativity. The ultra-compact MPK mini is designed for the traveling musician and the desktop producer. With an array of hardware controls, MPK mini lets you record, compose, and perform with virtual instruments, effect plugins, and DAWs whenever inspiration strikes. It features 25 velocity-sensitive synth-action keys, a 4-way thumbstick for dynamic pitch and modulation manipulation, 8 backlit velocity-sensitive MPC-style pads, and 8 assignable Q-Link knobs. Plus, two banks expand the number of MPC-style pads to 16 for extended creative capabilities.

Get Creative
MPK mini includes all the essentials for quickly laying down and expanding upon your musical ideas. Dedicated Octave Up and Down buttons increase the keyboard to the full melodic range, and a sustain pedal input is built in for expressive playing and recording. An onboard arpeggiator with adjustable resolution, range, and modes makes it easy to create intricate melodic lines with little effort. Plus, MPC Note Repeat and Full Level allow users to access genuine technologies from Akai Professional's line of MPC workstations.

Plug-And-Go!
For maximum portability, MPK mini requires no software drivers or external power adapter for operation. It supports plug-and-play connectivity, features USB-MIDI, and powers up with a single USB connection to your Mac or PC. Four memory banks enable you to store hardware/software presets for quick and easy setting up of your computer and MPK mini.

Software Included
MPK mini comes bundled with professional production software and virtual instruments for immediate music creation. Hybrid 3, by AIR Music Tech, is a high-definition synthesizer that can create anything from fat, retro synth sounds to edgy modern leads and everything in between. SONiVOX's Wobble is an electronic music grime synthesizer that features two independent channels of spectral morphing synthesis with harmonic controls, individual filtering, and discrete LFO controls. MPC Essentials, a groove/beat production and sample-triggering software, lets producers and musicians incorporate genuine MPC workflow into their DAW of choice and extends the power of MPK mini by adding up to 8 pad banks and 4 samples and insert effects per pad. MPC Essentials also runs in standalone mode, so you can start making music without a DAW.

MPK mini MIDI Editor
Unlock the true potential of your MPK mini with the MPK mini MIDI Editor software. This MIDI editor is a powerful preset management software that lets MPK Mini users customize their hardware and software setup on their Mac or PC. Create and tweak presets for your favorite virtual instruments, plugins, and DAWs, then store them on your MPK mini. You'll spend less time setting up your gear and more time doing what you love-making great music.

I plugged this thing into my computer and it immediately started working. Because the keyboard was made to work with no drivers needed, it connected to my DAW right out of the box with almost no difficulty. The keys and pads are velocity sensitive so you can put in the emotion you need into your mix easily. It also looks fantastic which is a bonus! I think this is an amazing product and an amazing deal.

...purchase from Akai. This thing is difficult to set up. The only answer Akai has is, "Watch the video." Been there, done that. The software is so sensitive that if your display isn't set to default, it won't work and keeps crashing. I have vision problems, so I need text larger on my screen. Very poor system of continous downloads to get it working. Very sloppy job, Akai. I would not recommend this product for beginners. It says that it is plug and play. Very far from the truth.

Comments about Akai Professional MPK Mini II WHITE Limited Edition:

This thing is awesome, although when I went to try one out at guitar center, the keys were definitely worn in and I was worried that's how it would feel even straight out of the box. definitely not the case. surprisingly great quality even with the price. and aesthetically appealing. Love the limited edition white controller

  • Versatile

Cons

  • Keys Feel Lackluster

Best Uses

  • Home Recording
  • Live Performance
  • Recording Demos On The Go

Comments about Akai Professional MPK Mini II WHITE Limited Edition:

This little thing looks cool, and is a great piece of gear for a musician who isn't always at home and still wants to compose parts and pieces on the go. The controls all work well, it was pretty easy to set up, and it's size is unbeatable.

The software it comes with is a bit annoying to install, typical "make an account to download" stuff you get from all audio companies today.

The only complaint I have is the keys. They feel worse than a lot of toy synths from the 80s. And they already look "uneven" after less than 24 hours of play with the device. This doesn't affect playability at all so far. But cosmetically, it is a bit disappointing.

By Robert

Comments about Akai Professional MPK Mini II WHITE Limited Edition:

I was searching for some vst's to use in GarageBand and I happen upon this device in Guitar Center's magazine and a YouTube video coincidentally and saw this on sale in the limited edition colors and I thought man I can't pass this up. It is fantastic. Great controls and feel. I absolutely love using Hybrid 3 that came with it. Wobble is really cool too. Not sure if I'll use MPC essentials but it's nice to have anyway. The Vst's that come with these are worth the price alone but the keyboard is got a great feel and is lightweight. I love the look of the white and black, really stylish. For someone trying to write synth pop music, you will have a blast using this keyboard and having all these programs gives me great inspiration.

Comments about Akai Professional MPK Mini II WHITE Limited Edition:

So this was my first midi, i got it so i could put together some drum beats and such. When i first got it and ran through the installation it was only working half the time, i knew i must have been missing something so i emailed to company and within 2 days they got back to me and answered all my questions and now it works great.

Everything you want in a mini MIDI controller

By Stephen

Verified Buyer

Comments about Akai Professional MPK Mini II WHITE Limited Edition:

Product is fantastic! Velocity control is surprisingly responsive and does everything you need a mini MIDI controller you do.

HOWEVER, I am upset with Guitar Center's shipping policy, which held my order for 3 business days because they couldn't "verify" my Paypal purchase -- despite the fact that I paid for 2 day shipping.

Perfect MIDI Controller!

By Jonathan

Verified Buyer

Comments about Akai Professional MPK Mini II WHITE Limited Edition:

I mean, LOOK at the color scheme of this midi controller! Its small, fits perfectly on my desk, matches my AKAI Renaissance, and fits perfectly in my bag if I wanna take it with me. Other than that, its a MIDI controller and it does what its supposed to do! Special shout out to AKAI for changing up on the typical color scheme.

Works well through my iMac

By Eddy D

See all my reviews

Verified Buyer

Comments about Akai Professional MPK Mini II WHITE Limited Edition:

I bought this unit because I thought it looked cooler than the other units and I wanted something small. It works well with Ableton Live, but I'm just learning that program. I don't really play keyboards either. I bought it to go with my iTrack Dock, but I found out after the fact from Focusrite that these units aren't compatible and had to go back and buy a Novation Launchkey Mini to use with my iPad. If you want something small to plug into your computer, this is a great little unit.

    Very nice feel and design, however not very user friendly when in the learning process (e.g. routing different sounds to the drum pads) , I had to turn to youtube for that. but other than that, beautiful instrument.
