Product Overview Akai hit it out of the park with the original MPK series and now they have taken 5 years to make sure the mini mk2 does the samw. With 25 mini-size keys Akai know too well that the modern keyboard whether in the studio or even up on stage rarely needs just a decent keybed. The MPK mini also features 8 RGB-illuminated MPC pads, 8 assignable Q-Link controllers, 4-way thumbstick for dynamic pitch and modulation control and switches as well as an amazing software bundle package that includes Ableton Hybrid 3 by AIR Music Tech, SONiVOX Twist 2.0, and Akai Pro MPC Essentials. The MPK mini is small but has it all.

Keys
The MPK mini has 25 mini-size keys that don't take up too much room. Great for coming up with ideas or jamming out simple patterns to gey you started.

Knobs and switches
The MPK mini packs it all and makes enhanced workflow as easy as possible. With 8 assignable Q-Link buttons you are able to step outside the usual parameters of lets say a virtual synth and assign commands like undo, copy, paste etc directly to the MPK controller. 8 assignable knobs so you can choose how you want to interact with your software.
Do you want to ride volumes with knobs? Or make a filter sweep? Now the choice is yours. Three banks expand the number of knobs and switches (up to 24 each).

MPC Pads
That’s right actual MPC pads! 8 RGB-illuminated each with 4 banks for 32 pads. They feel the way MPC pads should and are done the way only AKAI can. There is also built in MPC functionality like Classic MPC Swing, MPC Note Repeat, MPC Full Level, and 16 Levels. Get the real deal ol skool feel with some nice modern touches.

Connections
The MPK225 plays well with others and has TS sustain pedal input. The MPK mini is made for the studio as well as the road and only needs USB power so no need for a power adapter.

Software Included:
-Hybrid 3 by AIR Music Tech
-SONiVOX Twist 2.0
-Akai Pro MPC Essentials

Hybrid 3
Hybrid 3.0 high-definition virtual synthesizer that combines old skool analogue sounds with a full range of futuristic digital manipulation capabilities. There is over 1200 presets to get you started but hybrid really shines when you start to tweak the 6 oscillators. Heaps of filtering options, step sequencer, envelopes, fx as well as 8lfos, Hybrid is the best of both the analogue and the digital worlds.

SONiVOX Twist
Twist is one killer sound design tool, taking advantage of Spectral Morphing Synthesis Twist can make some sounds that are out of this world. With extra features like a wicked multi-mode filter, independent Amp and Filter envelope generators you can design unique sounds then mess with the onboard pro-grade chorus and reverb effects. Although the sounds are complex the gui is very inviting with large knobs and a very easy integrated patch browser.

MPC Essentials
The MPC has a long and storied history. Its one of the pieces of audio equipment that challenges the way music production works but in such an intuitive way that it changed the musical landscape forever. Now you get to have that MPC magic in software form featuring Standalone mode (so you don't even need a DAW) or as a VST, RTAS, or AU plugin, 1GB sound library easy importing of your WAV and AIFF sound samples so you can assign them to any pad. MPC essentials is the perfect gateway to see what the legendary MPC can offer. Features • Incorporates 5 years of user feedback for an all-new, enhanced design

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good beginners/portable Keyboard/Controller/Pads Good beginners/portable Keyboard/Controller/Pads. Bought because I wanted to learn to play, without shelling out too much at the get go. Seems well made. Obviously not a full size Keyboard or full range, but has easy to use Octave up / down, and the APC software is easy to configure the Pads and Rotary controls to your needs. The Pads are responsive (something the old one was often criticised for). Includes (when I purchased) 2 plugin softsynths and the MPC Sample/Drum sequencer which are probably worth the asking price on their own for some people! 11 August 2014
