The Akai Professional’s MPK Mini III rocks everything you need for today’s on-the-go music production, including unrivaled portability, instant integration with your favorite DAW; performance pads and assignable knobs that give you expressive control of every parameter, and an updated Gen 2 dynamic mini keybed that reflects every nuance of your performances. If you’re just getting into music production, MPK Mini offers a complete, powerful package with all the tools you need to generate hit songs. For the working pro, MPK Mini is the a compact Swiss Army knife that can tackle any production task.
New for the third-generation MPK Mini is Akai’s Gen 2 dynamic mini keybed, which has been completely redesigned for enhanced playability, These keys feel great for laying down everything from virtual pianos, EPs, and synths to orchestral instruments. And ported straight from Akai’s MPC series, the eight bankable, velocity-sensitive pads provide the ideal touch for precision finger drumming and melodic sample playback. With the MPK Mini’s endless knobs, you have the immediacy of hands-on control over any assignable parameter in your music software. Precisely tweak EQ, sweep a filter open on the fly, dial up that reverb tail coming out of the solo. The MPK Mini III’s intuitive, expressive controls are under your command.
The difference between a cool MIDI controller and a full hybrid keyboard workstation is the Complete Music Production Starter Kit, a powerful virtual instrument and FX suite that’s free with the MPK Mini III. You get over 1500 downloadable sounds and a powerful software package that includes MPC Beats and six amazing virtual Instruments (Bassline, Tubesynth, Electric, Hybrid 3, Mini Grand, and Velvet) plus 2GB of sound content that will jump-start your hit-making creativity right out of the box.
