For a more natural, musical, and rhythmic workflow on the go, look no further than the Akai Professional MPK Mini Mk2 keyboard controller. The MPK Mini Mk2 is both affordable and portable but is nonetheless packed with features that make music production on the road a more enjoyable and expressive experience. With 25 velocity-sensitive keys, 8 velocity-sensitive pads, 8 assignable Q-Link knobs and more, the MPK Mini Mk2 gives you the tools to produce with ease wherever you are.
Workflow On The Go
Whether you're on a bus or chilling in the park, the MPK Mini Mk2 makes producing music a lot easier than using a laptop trackpad. With a 25-key, velocity-sensitive keyboard, octave up and down buttons, a 4-way pitch/mod thumbstick, and 8 velocity-sensitive MPC-style pads you can create beats and melodies intuitively and musically. There also 8 Q-Link knobs which can be assigned to control virtually any parameter. While the MPK Mini Mk2 may be small, these features give you a more natural and fluid workflow for making music wherever you are.
Portable and Easy-To-USe
The MPK Mini Mk2's compact size makes it a great portable controller. You can easily throw it a bag and when you take it out, it just needs to be connected via USB and you're ready to go. No drivers to install, no external power supplies or batteries to change, just simple USB power and USB MIDI. There are also four memory banks so you can save hardware and software presets, instantly recalling your preferred settings without having to readjust every time you change program.
The MPK Mini Mk2 comes with free software to help you jump right into making music. Included are virtual synths like Hybrid 3 by AIR Music Tech and Wobble by SONiVOX, as well as a MPC Essentials which offers MPC workflow in your DAW or as a standalone. MPC Essentials is a beat/groove production and sample-triggering software that expands the MPK Mini with up to 8 pad banks as well as 4 samples and insert effect per pad. You also get a free download of Akai Professional's VIP3.0 software which offers greater hardware/software integration for improved control over VST instruments and effects.
