A lot of control in a sleek package

By Gregory

Comments about Arturia Minilab MKII Mini Hybrid Keyboard Controller:

The keyboard works, the software downloaded pretty easily, and it works well with my piano to give me full keys and control. The pads will occasionally double-press for me and don't go readily to full velocity, but I can use them well enough for playing.
Analog Lab Lite is nothing more than a bunch of presets with a lot of ways to modulate them. Nothing near the full V Collection software, but you can do so much with the presets to customize and tweak them. Also, buying this makes upgrading to the full Analog Lab 3 (10x more presets, for over 6000 options) fairly cheap.
It the MIDI (USB only, sorry) controller I needed at the price I wanted. It works well for me so far.

Comments about Arturia Minilab MKII Mini Hybrid Keyboard Controller:

The MiniLab MkII is one of the nicest small MIDI controllers I've seen – it fits in a very small space but still has a very nice build quality and polish. Comes with a license for Analog Lab, a solid collection of soft synths modeled on classic analog synths (includes the Lite version, but you can upgrade to the full version for $29).

Two things bring down the MiniLab mkII for me. One, though I haven't experienced this extensively yet, the encoders are finicky with most DAWs – it works well out of the box with Ableton Live and Analog Lab, but will require some fiddling with other software, and you may never be happy with the way they work simply because of how the software is designed. If you're primarily looking for a controller for the encoders, keep this in mind.

Secondly, they made the baffling design decision to indicate the current octave by making the octave +/- lights blink constantly – so if you're in octave +1, the +1 button blinks slowly, and blinks faster in octave +2, etc. This means that as long as the controller is plugged in and is in any octave but the middle one, it will blink. Constantly. Out of the corner of your eye. Always letting you know that, yes, it's still in octave +1. I nearly returned the MiniLab mkII because of this, as it would drive me absolutely crazy, but I haven't found another controller with this combination of size, features, quality and price. So I just put a piece of duct tape over the octave buttons. Yes, it's that annoying. They could fix this with a simple software update, but probably won't.

    I mainly do guitar and vocals, but wanted something to add some more sound options to recordings. This thing is the perfect size, is solidly made, and though the software take a while to set up it is worth the effort - sounds great! Would definitely recommend, great piece of gear!!
