OVERVIEW

Same compact controller with a limited-edition white color finish.

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.

    Comments about Akai Professional MPK Mini II WHITE Limited Edition:

    I bought this MIDI controller after extensive research into all the options in this price range. I needed to get a versatile platform on a razor thin budget. I've been impressed so far. The keys - while small - have pretty decent feedback, and the pads all feel exactly the way they should. It works well with ProTools, but I had to search the internet a bit to get ProTools to recognize it (the instructions on the box don't outline assigning a plugin to the created instrument track.)

    Overall it is clearly built with quality in mind and while compact feeds larger and heavier than it really is. Definitely a great buy and if this is how Akai products perform, I'll plan on sticking with them moving forward.

      Comments about Akai Professional MPK Mini II WHITE Limited Edition:

      I have a full on studio but I like the idea of working with projects on the go...so I got a laptop...needed this and as I started to edit and create songs, i've come to use it more at home and in the studio. The pads work really well too. At this price point, there is nothing competing with it.

        Comments about Akai Professional MPK Mini II WHITE Limited Edition:

        I bought this powerful little controller for use in my project studio. It has performed adrimbly so far and the downloadable software is a real added bonus! The Akai editor software really is easy to use. The Hybrid 3 synth is worth at least a third what you pay for the controller. I never would've thought you could get an onboard arpeggiater in such a small unit. I wish I had purchased the MLK mini sooner!

        Comments about Akai Professional MPK Mini II WHITE Limited Edition:

        If you're looking for something that can be easy to take with you on the road and even assist you on a small scale to create big things, believe me when I say this is the tool you need. Whether you're like me and travel a lot or sometimes you just want to create from the couch instead of sitting up in your studio, you can do that. But really, DO NOT sleep on how useful AND fun this is. Yeah, you like having all your faders and knobs and keys and everything else you might have on your current controller, but this not only teaches you to simplify yourself and that less is more, it forces you to learn its in's and out's. Which personally, I enjoy. I love the feel of the pads and the keys and honestly, it's built pretty sturdy. You also can't complain about the price.
