MPK Mini MkII -Hands-on Compact Control from Akai Professional

Whether you’re a mobile performer or a studio producer, Akai Professional’s MPK Mini MkII lets you take control of your music making in exciting new ways. Small enough to fit in your backpack, this diminutive, USB bus-powered MIDI controller gives you 25 velocity-sensitive synth-action mini keys, Octave Up/Down buttons, and an ergonomic 4-way thumbstick for pitch-bend and mod duties. With the MPK Mini MkII, you also get eight backlit, velocity-sensitive MPC-style pads (in two banks) with MPC Note Repeat and Full Level, plus eight assignable Q-Link knobs. In addition, there’s an onboard arpeggiator with adjustable resolution, range, and modes. Get hands-on with your music again with the Akai Professional MPK Mini MkII from Sweetwater.

Craft sophisticated Virtual Instrument rigs with Akai Professional VIP3.0

The difference between a fun MIDI controller and a full hybrid keyboard workstation is Akai Professional VIP3.0 — a powerful instrument and FX suite (a $100 value) that’s free with your purchase of the MPK Mini MkII. This third-generation version of Akai Professional’s Virtual Instrument Player software is a masterpiece of workflow management. It lets you load up just about any VST plug-in and combine up to eight virtual instruments plus effects into sophisticated arrangements with key zones, splits, and custom mappings — exactly what you’d expect from a standalone workstation. What’s more, there’s an ever-growing list of plug-ins that automatically map to your controller, but thanks to VIP3.0’s MIDI Learn function, you can map any plug-in with any controller in any way you like. Run it as a standalone platform or use it as a plug-in in your favorite DAW. Either way, VIP3 will revolutionize the way you approach virtual instruments.

The MPK Mini MkII’s plug-in and standalone software instruments

Along with its full-featured button layout and great synth action, your purchase of the MPK Mini MkII qualifies you for a generous suite of virtual instruments. Here’s what you get:

Step up your game with Melodics software
