Firmware Update v1.1
The producer's choice, fine-tuned.

This free update makes MiniLab MkII’s interface and workflow more intuitive, tactile and precise than ever - so you can focus on your creative process. Here’s what’s included:
Improved control accuracyResponsive controls are crucial to inspiring music creation. We’ve adjusted MiniLab MkII’s knobs to be more accurate and sensitive to subtle tweaks - capture every detail of your sound.
Pitch BendThe Pitch Bend touch strip is an essential expressive component. Arturia made it even smoother than before, with greater note accuracy, for effortless slides and bends.
Configurable pad backlightingRGB feedback on MiniLab MkII’s pads has been refined. Pads remain backlit even when not in use, and you can disable individual LEDs without creating new templates.
feedbackArturia listened to your feedback and changed the Oct- & Oct+ pad LEDs to be fixed rather than flashing. This makes octaves easier to track and the interface less distracting during your performance or session.
