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.

Mighty Mouse of Controllers
What is your opinion of this product?
Rock solid and very versatile. I run different software depending what and who I’m writing for. In syncs up flawlessly with all of them. The pads and being able to use a sustain pedal makes it a no brainer. This replaces my synthstation 25 and other mini controller. Akai is built to last and love. Big thanks to AWS.

Super Mini!
What is your opinion of this product?
Dynamite comes in Small packages! I bought this for my wife to use with her laptop. It works so well for her that I’m seriously considering buying myself one so I can be mobile-productive. I own a MPK261 that I absolutely Love! I wouldn’t trade it for anything. BUT.....for having a usb controller that can go with you Anytime/Anywhere and have the features the MPK MINI has (ie 8 MPC pads, JoyStick , built in Appegiator, etc It’s a MUST-HAVE ????.
