Product Expert MIDI keyboards

The Akai MPK Mini MK2 is a compact MIDI keyboard for beginning producers. Put more feeling into your performance thanks to touch-sensitive keys that distinguish hard keystrokes from soft ones. Place the mouse to one side, and play melodies with your fingers. The melodies will sound less static, and you'll add a human feeling to your productions. Use your fingertips to tap in drums and rhythms on the 8 velocity-sensitive drum pads. Save time, and directly hammer out the idea you have in mind. The 8 dials let you control parameters from your recording software and plugins. You decide which parameters to link to the dials, so you don't need a mouse to control your software.
