The Akai Pro MPK mini is an ultra-compact mini-keyboard with an impressive array of buttons, knobs and pads to provide "hands-on" performance and production control no matter your location. MPK mini strikes the perfect balance between portability and comprehensive software control by melding together the complete control offered in the popular Akai Pro MPK family with the grab-and-go convenience of the LPK25 and LPD8. With a 25-note keyboard, 8 back-lit, MPC-style pads and 8 Q-Link knobs, the MPK mini is the ultimate portable controller to get your music moving.

Great for those just getting into music production - this midi keyboard is easily the best choice over similar entry level midi keyboards. Ideally, you want something 1st of all to input notes into Fruity Loops, Ableton or whatever DAW you have chosen to use. The mini keys are velocity sensitive, and can cover 5 Octaves using the up /down keys. Easy to set up - and is auto detected by any DAW as soon as its midi to usb lead is plugged in. Its USB powered too so no mains power needed. The built in Arpeggiator has a tempo key, as well 4 built in programs can also be easily set up how you want it - it just a click or two - as is the drum pads - 8 velocity sensitive pads, in 2 banks - give you 16 separate assignable pads to any midi command. Also are 8 MIDI assignable rotary knobs again easily assignable to any function in the DAW or any VST instrument as a plugin - or in a standalone version - such as Arturia's Spark Drum Synthesizer. Also as all midi can be remapped, its possible to map it to dj software - like to trigger cue points/ loos / samples etc, with the pads - 1 bank for cues, one for loops and the keys remapped as sample triggers. Anyway - a versatile entry midi keyboard - but as its by AKAI - you know its going to be anything but basic. Great. 5 Stars ******
This is good if you go around with your equipment a lot because i don't think it is studio equipment, it is more a carry round for messing around when your away or something, If you want studio equipment then get a proper midi keyboard but if you are after a carry around then choose this or the novation impulse 25 or the novation ultra/mini nova.
