Get Portability and Control from this Grab-and-go Keyboard!Making music on the go can be a real juggling act. On one hand, you want to travel light, which means leaving some important gear behind. On the other hand, there are some basic functions you don't want to leave behind, such as drum pads, encoders, and (of course) a nice set of keys. The ultra-compact Akai Pro MPK mini lets you travel light without sacrificing either portability or or control. The idea behind the MPK mini is simple: Akai combined the best of their super-popular LPK25 keyboard and their LPD8 drum controller.
The result is a 25-key keyboard with eight backlit drum pads and eight super-versatile Q-Link knobs. This gives you the controls you need to tweak patches, mix tracks, play soft-synths, and more. The MPK mini also offers great performance controls. You can lock notes with the onboard sustain button. The MPK mini even has an excellent arpeggiator with tap tempo control built right in - perfect for rocking out with the band!
