Overview

This is the Akai MPK MINI MK II offered in a special edition red. When they're gone, they're gone for good, so if you need a controller and you appreciate a little extra spice in your studio or stage's color palette, here's the instrument for you.

Mini controller with maximum functionality
Go mobile without losing control. The MPK mini is an ultra-compact keyboard controller 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.

Very disappointed in Guitar Center, I didn't know they have such a shady business practice. As someone mentioned below they send you used (or refurbished) item, with greasy fingerprints all over the keyboard, software serial number - handwritten with pan?, in an open box. It is so lame, that I don't have words for it. I purchased a new keyboard and not a second-hand/refurbished.
If this happen again I will never be buying anything from Guitar Center.

I was sent a refurbished item with very poor packaging and fingerprints all over the keyboard.
Please note I bought it new without any indication I would be receiving something previously used

    Guitarcenter disappointed me

    By Ernesto

    Comments about Akai Professional RED MPK MINI MKII:

    Completely disappointed with GC. After waiting a week for item to be in stock from an online purchase I was told it was available at a store near me. GC claimed it was new. Turns out the unit was opened, used, greasy, and one of the keys was damaged. The service rep had the tenacity to say "units arrive like that". Will never shop at guitarcenter again. Demanding my money back.

      Comments about Akai Professional RED MPK MINI MKII:

      I bought this because it fits in my backpack, I have a PRO MAX 25 at home. The mini works fine with playing keyboard parts and drumpad work, but it takes midi editing skills to enjoy all of the features.

      Looks and feels cheap but its a Workhorse!

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about RED MPK MINI MKII:

      After reading the reviews online I came across the red and black color scheme and fell in love with it. Like most of the reviews say "it feels and looks like a plastic Fisher Price toy" but it is a workhorse and it performs like a MIDI controller​ twice its price. I'm enjoying it a lot.

        Comments about Akai Professional RED MPK MINI MKII:

        Product performs exactly as advertised. The Akai website has clear download instructions for all of the accompanying software as well as detailed manuals and tutorials to accelerate the learning process. I have a Windows 10 PC that initially encountered a problem loading the MPC Essentials software. That issue was resolved in minutes when the exact problem was addressed in one of the Akai community forums. Guitar Center on-line provided delivery ahead of their anticipated delivery date. Could not be more pleased with the product, support, and purchase.
