Akai MPK Mini MK2 (White) Product Description
Limited Edition White Finish
The Akai MPK Mini is ideal for musicians on the go and desktop producers. This ultra compact keyboard includes a full array of hardware controls letting you record, perform and compose with virtual instruments, effects plugins and DAWs. 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. The eye-catching white finish is not only stylish but reserved only for this limited edition version of the Akai MPK Mini 2. The housing itself features the sleek white finish with the keybed featuring a reversed colour pallete with the white keys painted black and the black keys being white. The pads are also illuminated thanks to the backlit design, featuring a red backlight for both the pads and other buttons.
Creativity On The Go
The Akai MPK Mini is perfect for quickly laying down 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 play. 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 the MPC workstations.
Plug And Play
The Akai MPK Mini requires no software drivers or external power adapter for operation. The keyboard features USB-MIDI and powers up with a single USB connection to your Mac or PC. Four memory banks allow you to store hardware/software presets for quick and easy set up.
MPK mini includes Hybrid 3 - a high def synth that can create anything from fat, retro sounds to edgy modern leads. 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 you incorporate genuine MPC workflow into your 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
The MPK Mini MIDI Editor software unlocks the true potential of this instrument. The MIDI editor is a powerful preset manager allowing you to customise your hardware and software setup on Mac or PC. Create and tweak presets for your favourite virtual instruments, plugins and DAWs then store them back on your MPK mini. You'll spend less time setting up and more time playing!
